1721 East Valley Road Montecito, CA
Romantic Provençal Farmhouse
Santa Barbara, California
Listing agent's comments:In the heart of Montecito, you will find a magical, tranquil world on two gorgeous private acres. There is a spacious single-level main house, a separate guest house and 2-car garage that create a courtyard, all designed by the owner-decorator. The house is ten years old but feels like it is an authentic farmhouse in the south of France. The main house and guest house have high ceilings, lime washed walls and handmade tile floors containing radiant heat. There is a gourmet kitchen with an attached loggia providing indoor-outdoor living. A "big hall" has twin fireplaces with views to the garden, terrace and pond. Grace Designs with the owners created a natural landscape that uses native plants to attract and support wildlife. The garden is surrounded by a 45-acre nature preserve and 45 acre estate. While not behind the gates, this home also belongs to the prestigious association of Ennisbrook. This includes use of all amenities, clubhouse, pools, (one a 25 meter), gym, and four tennis courts, two of which are red clay.

This home belongs to a well know interior designer, she has collected a lot of art work and antiques over the years. Is it too much for a home on the market, too personal. Check out the rest of the pics and let me know what you think.
