Location: Montecito, California
From the outside, this contemporary residence tucked in the Montecito hills looks like it could play host to million-dollar artworks or historical artifacts. The real stunner here, though, is the architecture.
Built in 2008, the three-bedroom, five-bath home features grand mountain and ocean views in addition to 6,200 square feet of living space. Tall ceilings and an open floor plan evoke a bright and airy feel complemented by white walls and floor-to-ceiling-windows.
Accents splashed around the exterior of the home allude to its steel frame, while interior highlights include custom Italian cabinetry and granite floors. The lower level of the home offers access to a serene outdoor terrace complete with a 15-foot stone waterfall, while the upper level is broken up into two landings, creating some separation in the living spaces.
We could list the numerous amenities—the walk-in closets, exercise room, modern kitchen, scenic bedrooms, gorgeous patio views—but these photos speak for themselves. If you’re interested in this work of art—er, home, 396 Woodley Road is listed now for $7,475,000.
