Inspired by the country estates of the northern Mediterranean, this custom-built villa in Montecito’s Upper Village blends Spanish and Italian architectural themes in perfect harmony. Behind dual wooden gates, the motor court is a fitting welcome to a timeless home with newly built detached sun-drenched studio. White stucco, Saltillo tile floors, hand-carved wood beams, ornate wrought iron, imported tile and arching paned windows adorn each space. In the dramatic foyer, a wide graceful staircase ascends to the master suite, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The central courtyard with fountain is an enchanting outdoor room off the kitchen and living room. Lush grounds include fruit trees, gardens, expansive lawn, and a side stone patio off the kitchen and formal dining room as another perfect entertaining oasis. Further Details: The soothing sound of nearby church bells can be heard daily, adding an ambient echo of the European countryside. French doors in nearly every room lead to numerous balconies and patios offering garden views and mountain vistas. There are a total of four fireplaces, including in the library that is an ideal and practical office, family room or guest room with powder room just outside. The formal dining room conveniently connects to the side patio. A fully outfitted basement workshop could brilliantly be transformed into a perfect wine cellar.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
