    I like the house a lot. I wish the interior pictures were better quality and didn’t make each room seem tiny. From what I could see, it looks like the home is very bare bones inside. It will take at least another million or two for the faux-finishing, furnishings and window treatments. Exterior is very nice, very livable. Love the driveway with the tall scary-looking trees.

    But for nearly $17 million!!!! I realize Montecito is a very exclusive town, but that is a lot of money, too much in my opinion. You can get a home in (the real) Beverly Park for that price, and even though its a different lifestyle, I would take Beverly Hills over Montecito any day.

    This is one of the better ones of this site. Exterior looks really nice, I love the pool area with the stairs, the poolhouse and trees and everything.
    The interior looks ok, maybe a bit to dark sometimes, but that’s not a major obstacle.

    As I said, I like the exterior, but when I look at picture 1, it feels to me that you’ll be baking inside that house in the summer. I’ve never been outside Europe, summers can be real hot here too (even here in the Netherlands) but I always thought summers in California are really hot and you’ll be running from airconditioned place to airconditioned place.
    Or am I wrong?

      Weather in Montecito is very temperate. In the summer the average high temps are below 80F and in the winter the average high temps are around 65F. The area gets breezes off the ocean to keep it cool in the summer, and if you live in the hills the breezes blow right up to your house. It’s a very nice moderate climate, which is why so many wealthy people choose to live there.

        ah, thanks man! Those temperatures seems very reasonable. It depends on humidity too, humidity here is relatively high, maybe in CA lower; and if that’s lower it feels less hot.
        So, 17 million is a lot, maybe to much (I have no idea about the prices there) but if someone gave me a big bonus I would say ‘When can I move in!’ 😛

    Nice exterior, but the price is a bit steep. I’d pay $9 million, not a penny more.

    I like it, but I don’t love it. The interior is very plain, but it will allow a skilled decorator to come in and work his/her magic. To me that makes more sense than a house decorated by the builder. I agree with Daniel that the interior pics don’t help the house’s case. Too many close-ups and everything is dark and lifeless. Myself, I would rather live in Montecito than Beverly Park or another such area.

    The outside and the grounds are beautiful, but something is missing that would give it that extra “umph”, and I just can’t put my finger on what it is.
