For Sale: A French Country Estate in Montecito, California

Original Post:

On Sunday afternoons I like to search the real estate listings, and the ones in Montecito and Santa Barbara, California, always have some amazing homes worth daydreaming over. Here’s one I found that’s billed as “An enchanting French Country Estate set on 2 level acres of beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens with incredible mountain views.”

It’s listed at $6.95 million and has over 8,000 square feet of living space.

The house has “hand-hewn beamed ceilings, elegant handcrafted European details, antique French wrought-iron hardware, and distressed oak plank floors,” according to the listing.

What I like about this house is that, despite its size, its elegance, and its price tag, it looks loved and lived in, like real people could (and do) live here.

The Master Suite is a departure from all of the dark, warm colors in the rest of the house. It looks very serene and a little more contemporary:

The house has 6 bedrooms and 5.3 baths, including this one, which has a fireplace and a beautiful view of the mountains:

The Pub/Game Room looks like a great place to hang out:

You know a property is big when they have to take an aerial view of it in order to fit it all in the photo:

Is this your dream home? For more information and photos, check the listing at Sotheby’s.
