Property Description

Nestled quietly beyond a gated entry above Montecito's renowned Butterfly Beach, a breathtaking work of art awaits, destined to impress. A stunning example of the iconic International Style of architecture, the one-of-a-kind home was influenced by the works of renowned modernist architect, Richard Neutra, who emphasized the flexibility and adaptability of space. The 3 bed, 2.5 bath residence re-envisions an elevated lifestyle. Walls of floor to ceiling windows with additional clerestory windows above grace the majority of the home, capitalizing on the indescribable coastal views and making them not only visible from every room, but the focal point, too. A spacious balcony wraps around the southern and eastern sides of the property, offering a dreamlike venue for enjoying one's morning coffee or evening sunsets. Designed with privacy in mind, the residence features tinted privacy glass windows and sliding glass doors, allowing one to see from the inside out with perfection, but restricts one from seeing in from the outside, while tall hedges flank the perimeter. A rare find, this distinctive home is situated on approximately 0.49-acre, with gorgeous yet low maintenance grounds, boundless possibilities, and commands a premier location, situated mere moments from the Four Seasons Biltmore, Coral Casino, Coast Village Road, hiking trails and more.
