    Exquisite Montecito Mediterranean with stunning mountain views; 3+ bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, multi-level living with commercial elevator, 3 colossal fireplaces, serene master suite with view terrace, enormous media/family room, expansive high ceiling living room, enchanting dining room with glass doors opening onto a vast wraparound entertainment patio and rolling lawn, large wine cellar, gourmet kitchen; Miele stainless appliances, smart home technology, 3-car garage; 7500~sqft under roof. Close to the shops and restaurants of Montecito, in a peaceful setting reminiscent of a Mediterranean countryside, this home has the eclectic blend of organic old-world craftsmanship and sensibilities, married with contemporary amenities, imaginative design, and state-of-the-art technology. Withinspiring views and the sweetness of the Italian "la dolce vita" and the French touch of "la douce France" known for its flair naturelle, tranquility and timeless class, you may find yourself on a forever holiday. All are welcomed into a foyer that hints of the qualities to be found throughoutfresh, new and bright with abundant natural light, soaring ceilings, artisan wrought iron lighting fixtures and handrails, the scale of furnishings tuned to suit each space, and carefully selected flooring. Throughout the residence, you will find Smart Home features, Sonos sound, wifi and pre-wiring for electronics. With approximately 7500 square feet under roof, there is ample room for entertaining as well as pockets of privacy. Step into a glorious living room with ultra-high ceiling supported by hand-hewn wood beams stained with a warm walnut hue found on antique furniture. Designed to be truly lived in, the room is made cozy with a large fireplace trimmed in wood and is spacious enough to have multiple sitting areas. As in the rest of the house, windows and doors frame panoramic views of nature. Graceful arches lead to other rooms and LED ceiling lights keep interior spaces well-lit throughout. French doors open to a terrace with garden views. Adjoining the living room is a family great room that will likely be the social hub of the house. Its fireplace with hand cut stone surround is substantial and inviting. Adding to the fun is a cocktail/wine bar. Flow into the cheerful dining area with its garden room atmosphere, stone floor and bi-fold glass doors or out the French doors to an expansive entertainment patio crowned with a pergola, entwined with passionfruit vines, which is the vantage point for a breathtaking view of the long corridor of emerald green lawn, dotted with majestic specimen trees, hand cut and stacked rocky nooks and mountain scenery. A grand outdoor fireplace extends gatherings through all the seasons of the year, as does the semi-circular firepit with seating area. Many memorable events are sure to be created in this awe-inspiring entertainment arena. Surrounded by trees and greenery, it is a thoughtfully created, self-contained paradise with no details spared. Just steps from the doors to the patio is a spacious open kitchen with brand new Miele stainless steel appliances, white Carrara marble with subtle dove grey veining on counter tops and back-splash, slate-like textured island counter, glass front white cabinetry with period hardware, two gleaming white porcelain sinks and a pantry. The oven has a duo environment capable of creating a mist of steam while roasting or baking to keep food moist and tender. The exhaust hood with its hammered copper trim is a dramatic cap over a six-burner range. The upper level of bedroom suites can be reached by stairs or a luxury hotel-style elevator discreetly hidden in the gallery between the living room and great room, which quietly opens just a few steps outside the luxurious master suite and a sitting area with a sky view window. The serene master bedroom has amazing views of the gardens and mountain from the windows, doors and expansive terrace. En suite is a spa shower tiled in travertine, jetted oval tub skirted in wood and dual sink vanity. A walk-in closet that is almost a room unto itself, has fine cabinetry and shelves to house all that you desire. The other two bright and airy bedrooms on this level also enjoy high ceilings, have splendid garden views and beautifully appointed bathrooms and closets. Each has soothing muted colors and spacious privacy. Both the elevator and stairs lead down from the living area to connect with the garage, wine cellar, storage and an insulated, versatile space perfect for games, media or possibly office, gym, studio and is a wonderful guest hideaway. Hosting your own wine tastings will be a fun pastime in the bright cellar room, which can house a tremendous collection from your favorite vineyards. A big screen in the comfortable recreation room will accommodate games, movies, live TV sports and more. With its own bathroom and plenty of playroom and privacy, it is the perfect spot for indoor activities. Also, on this ground level is abundant storage, laundry room and garage bays for three cars. As guests drive past the stone entry pillars, they will find a circular driveway that provides ample room for parking. Just minutes away are the shops and restaurants of Montecito and the beach. Here you will find galleries, wine tasting, boutiques, the Montecito Club with its Jack Nicklaus designed golf course; fine and casual dining venues in both villages and the world-class hotels, personal care and other services. The home is located in the highly rated Cold Spring School District.
