Villa Flora a mesmerizing property in the heart of Montecito. To complement its spiritually designed architecture and gardens, every inch of the home has been appointed so as to create an atmosphere that speaks to the human soul. After opening the historic front door designed by famed architect, Lutah Maria Riggs, you will pass through the archway of the stone tiled foyer, into the luxurious living room. On the hardwood floor rests a creative assemblage of furniture and rugs from around the world. The beamed ceiling, charming fireplace, and view of one of the numerous fountains and gardens, gives a feeling of Spanish grandeur. From there you are drawn through bold archways into a soothing, stone tiled sun room with broad views of the garden and French doors that invite you out to the diverse potted greenery that frames a relaxing flagstone patio. 

A most charming family room with stone fireplace, eclectic vintage finds and Persian rugs provides panoramic views of the patio, garden, and expansive flagstone swimming pool. A fully appointed kitchen with 6 burner Viking range and marble-top island food prep area allows for the creation of family feasts. Off the kitchen is a cozy dining room that provides views of gardens and patios through archways and French doors. The kitchen opens out to a  patio surrounded by gardens, a full grilling station, sensuous pergola covered sitting area, and a robust, Mediterranean styled wood burning fireplace. 

Through the grounds, you will wander through a full acre of lush garden vignettes that offer a multitude of flowers, specimen oaks, expansive lawns, stone walls, and a succulent collection that is one of the most diverse in Montecito. Poolside there is a generous lounging area signatured by a massive stone fireplace and potted plants.. In the lower end of the grounds is a full bocce court enhanced by a cozy, stone-wall-enclosed sitting area that nestles up to a third wood burning fireplace. 

Upstairs is the master suite with king sized bed, a cozy outdoor patio, an adjacent sunlit dressing room, and a dramatic his and hers bathroom with a claw foot tub and garden views. On the first floor, at the end of a sun drenched hallway lies the second master bedroom with its own bathroom, king sized bed, and French doors that fill the room with sunlight and open up to the garden patio. Off the living room is the 3rd bedroom complete with its own bathroom, queen bed, and adjacent art room that holds a pullout couch that can sleep two. Between the two bedrooms is the quirky office space that guarantees to get the creative juices flowing. Here, you can plop down your laptop or choose from a myriad of cool books, while you serendipitously gaze out through a large picture window at the patio and garden beyond.

A spacious laundry room enhances longer term cleaning, and parking is provided for at least six vehicles. Downtown Santa Barbara is less than 10 minutes away, and beautiful Miramar beach, favorite of the locals, is 3 minutes away. Whether you are sitting in one of the gardens on a beautiful summer day, or chilling out in the family room during a winter rain, Villa Flora is like a slice of heaven.
