This magnificently colossal estate has an architecture theme, induced with a variety of structural forms deriving from Indonesia-Bali, an overall Asiatic facade. Settled exquisitely within the Montecito hills, from the very property, mesmerizing views of the ocean and nearby mountains can be admired upon.
A fauna medley of multiplicity creates a grand and sprawling array of green and color, along the winding and extensive driveway, accessed from the main entry gate.
One of the first features of the property is the sprawling Koi pond, featuring an accentuated Torii gate, collectively inviting you further to the front of the house. The centrality of this resplendent residence can be seen through a long, glass wall. The great room, the heart of the house, appended with flamed black limestone, distressed oak floors, impeccable bamboo ceiling, added with exotic afromosia wood, gives this space a new, tropical and extravagantly content feeling to the room’s occupants.
Attained through a meticulous, hand-crafted process involving six layers of sand and plaster, the intramural wall finish gives the onlooker a familiar scene, in accordance with the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
The vast glass sliding doors, facing southwards, create a portal from the house onto the veranda. The veranda is adorned with a gas fire pit table, dining area and panoramic vista stretching nearly 50 miles along the coastline. Just beyond this sprawling veranda is a exuberant lawn alongside a basalt pebble infinity pool, blending seamlessly into the ocean view.
From the great room you’ll flow into a gourmet kitchen, enhanced with a large family island using Richlite (a unique, eco-friendly countertop material). A built-in Evo Affinity grill, Traulsen refrigerator and freezer, six burner range with two ovens and a separate smart oven completes the professional and quality setting. The craftsmanship gives an efficient finish to this custom cabinetry. The kitchen top cupboards are further complemented by the honed basalt countertops that line the perimeter, tying into the stone used throughout the house.
The extension of the house, stretching east and west is accessed along continuing corridors. Going either direction, following along these dual corridors you will find awe-inspiring, light-filled atriums further adorned with ceiling suspended construction, made from Petung bamboo. On each side of the property’s residence there are distinct quarters for living offering both privacy and powerful views of the mesmerizing landscape. Off of one of these spaces lies two very large guest suites, equipped with walk-in closets. While on the other wing the Master Suite settles, where it can be further closed off by open grid sliding doors. This area is befitted with a secluded den, the Master Bedroom of course, along with an oversize bathroom and enormous master dressing room closet.
An exercise facility with changing area and shower/steam combination near the pool and a detached office are located within the property’s cabana. Furthermore a guest house comprised of two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a great room opening to a full kitchen and private garden.
The property is supported by two water wells and a commercial grade generator which is capable of running the entire estate if electrical power is interrupted. The final feature is the included adjacent property which has its own individual residence available for the use of domestic staff or family members.
As you can imagine and picture from the variety of images, 2955 East Valley Road is beyond imagination, but it can be your reality…
