Reminiscent of an estate in the French countryside yet mere moments to world-class beaches, this beautiful French-inspired Montecito estate exudes an ambiance of relaxed luxury. Christened La Dolce Vita, the main and detached structure have been exquisitely maintained to this day. Its distinct architecture lends itself nicely to Montecito's coveted indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Many of the rooms have outdoor access and multiple windows, allowing for an abundance of natural light and listening to the nearby waves crashing on a warm summer night. Through traditional blue wooden gates, a flagstone pathway, bordered by precisely-trimmed hedges and other tasteful landscaping, leads one to an imposing stone turret entryway and a dramatic curved staircase with clerestory window. While the interiors of the home are inspiring, the grounds and location of this French Montecito estate are certainly standouts as well, with a pool/spa, terrace, gardens and a short distance to the beach.
