ADDRESS: 811 Montecito Drive
Featured home by Andrew Sanchez
Ideally situated on a flat promontory in the hills of Montecito Heights, up behind a gated driveway awaits this private, creative compound with a huge lot; this gorgeous light-filled Spanish hacienda ranch home with tons of outdoor entertaining space is just begging to be called home!
This beautiful property is brimming with motifs in wood carvings, thresholds and ironwork throughout that celebrate nature, plants and animals – you can catch a good glimpse in the photo above. At the front of the home you also have a beautiful view deck and sunken fire pit, surrounded by a verdant oasis that gives way to breathtaking views.
Inside, a bright cheery interior with light wood floors, brick walls, white-washed vaulted ceilings in the living + dining, and large windows with lush hillside views make for a space that feels inviting and warm.
Views views views!
Updated kitchen with wood range, stunning light pendants and Zellige style tiles. Love!
Home boasts gorgeous bedrooms (I love the whitewashed brick so much) and 2 bathrooms.
The property features several outdoor spaces ideal for large scale entertaining. Behind the home is a shaded pergola perfect for relaxing with a good book, and a garden with pomegranate, loquat, citrus, avocado trees and a bubbling fountain. Truly paradise.
There’s a wonderful detached studio with 3/4 bath. A great space for a creative studio, gym, play or guests.
Through the mature cactus and succulent garden pathways you’ll make your way to a large flat yard. Underneath a mature walnut tree there is tons of room to entertain (I can easily envision a large dinner party under that tree) or space to consider possibilities of future expansion.
Two additional garages for parking or storage. This beautiful meditative retreat tucked up in the hills offers serenity while still being just minutes from all the wonderful cafes, restaurants and shops on beloved Figueroa Blvd. in Highland Park. A truly special and unique property with so much to offer!
