Old World Romance in Montecito | West Coast Luxury

The first thought I had when I came across this listing was, 'Wow I'm legitimately obsessed with this home'. Keep in mind this is coming from someone who has lived in the northeast their entire life and has never even dreamt of living anywhere else. And yes, I have been to west coast numerous times and seen all of the beauty is has to offer, but what can I say? I am what I am. However, this majestic Montecito estate located on 2.7 acres just east of the city of Santa Barbara has me reconsidering my stubborn ways. The views, the landscape, and the architecture of this prestigious property are truly unparalleled.

Boasting 6 bedrooms, 8 full bathrooms, and 2 half-baths across 8,577 square feet, Casa Leo Linda offers the epitome of upscale California living. The grand entryway lends itself to the old world romance of the Spanish style home with ornate features including an oversized glass front door clad with detailed ironwork and sweeping columns that take your eye all the way up to the high ceilings showcased throughout each room.

Beautiful light abounds from the two sets of French doors in the main living room, which features an elegant coffered ceiling and the first of several fireplaces within the home.

Just off the foyer opposite the living room is the formal dining room, which also features a coffered ceiling, oversized French doors, traditional wainscoting, and a handsome fireplace.

While the home is traditional in many respects, it also lends itself to the casual comforts of every day living. The spacious custom gourmet kitchen is warm and inviting, and offers an informal dining space in a more relaxed setting.

Adjacent to the informal dining space is the family room featuring a warming fireplace and a set of French doors leading out to the patio. This has to be one of my favorite spaces within the home -- just imagine yourself curling up next to the fireplace with a good book and enjoying the California sunshine pouring in through the windows. A true paradise.

The exterior of the home is perhaps even more impressive that the craftsmanship displayed within. Offering glimpses of the Pacific and stunning mountain views, this property also features a heated in-ground pool, tennis court, outdoor barbecue, outdoor fireplace, and separate pool house.
