    Description

    A rare & extraordinary piece of Art & Antiquity, Far Afield is one of two significant historic estates remaining in the prime Montecito ''Golden Quadrangle'' commanding apx 10.5 acres. In 1917 enduring Santa Barbara ''The Biltmore Hotel'' Architect Francis T. Underhill designed this gorgeous Mediterranean Revival (Villa) Estate & gardens inspired by his other noted masterpieces. At enormous expense and time, a 15-year restoration project completed in 2015 delivers art & architecture thoughtfully finished with hand crafted custom details using 17th & 18th century reclaimed building materials curated throughout Europe. Each of the parquet floor patterns were custom built on site with hand cut French Oak, imported from historic Chateaus. A curated collection of Dutch, Italian and Spa tilesare attentively integrated throughout the estate's interior and exterior. The elegance of the 7 bd + 14 ba villa's architecture, facade & finishes are enhanced by the estate's unparalleled & completely updated infrastructure including a structural & mechanical engineering overhaul with added subterranean levels & state of the art systems rivaling modern hotel resorts of today. Far Afield is a legacy estate for the ages with everything you would expect to represent success, class & sophistication. Gated long canopied driveway approach set back several hundred yards from Hot Springs Road introduces an unassuming, yet unbelievably awe-inspiring romantic Main Villa and Guest Residence w/ indelible charm & character. Truly a trophy asset to be cherished by children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren for decades to come offered for the first time in nearly 20 years. A once in a lifetime opportunity with location, land, gardens, & pedigree architecture impossible to replicate today.
