Location: Montecito, Calif.
The Skinny: Built in 2000 to designs by architect Jack Warner, this Montecito hilltop estate enjoys views of rolling hills and the Pacific beyond, with broad windows, a large patio, and clean lines that don’t distract from the vistas. The 7,200-square-foot main house sits on 2.5 acres and includes five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a pair of offices, a covered terrace for all-weather outdoor dining, and plenty of fountains and water features.
Some of the sculpture looks a bit dated in context, but there’s no guarantee that it comes with the property. Either way, with a very slight amount of sprucing this $10.5 million mansion could be a showplace estate. The entry, in particular, with a precisely manicured gravel driveway and walls of ivy, lends the place a swank feel.
