Distinguished by gracious proportions, harmonious flow, artisanal millwork, and a second-story veranda, this classic five-bedroom Monterey Colonial captures the beauty of simpler times. The 1933 Benjamin Horner compound has been thoughtfully reenvisioned by Litchfield Builders, with the creative oversight of Sophie Calvin Design Team, to incorporate the streamlined style of today while preserving the craftsmanship of its historic past.
South-facing French doors and fresh, neutral tones offset by contrasting European oak floors infuse the central foyer with a calming elegance that cascades into the adjacent rooms. A beautiful coffered ceiling and original fireplace mantel punctuate the formal living room, which opens to the terrace and pool. Opposite the living room, a grandiose kitchen anchors the inviting great room and is outfitted with Wolf and Subzero appliances amidst a contemporary, all-white aesthetic. A mudroom with built-in seating and storage joins the kitchen, laundry, and garage, while a petite bedroom with detached bath allows for a designated home office. Also on the main floor, the master suite is appointed with his-and-her walk-in closets as well as a sumptuous marble bath with a sun-soaked tub overlooking the manicured grounds. The upper level hosts three handsome bedroom suites with walk-in closets, veranda access, and views of the mountains and setting.
In the backyard, a magnificent 45-foot pool with spa, lush grass surround, and a cozy cabana with fireplace create a luxurious scene, while the expansive remaining grounds afford endless possibilities for the visionary horticulturist. Nestled in a nook is a darling studio guest house with kitchenette, full bath, and secluded alfresco area.
Comprising one private acre amidst mature oaks, a stone’s throw from famed San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito’s Golden Quadrangle, the 3,590+ square-foot estate enjoys the enviable quietude of El Bosque Road with a moment’s convenience to the Upper Village, MUS Elementary, world-class beaches, golf and tennis clubs, and fine dining.
