    I like it. The only thing I would change are the cheap-looking balustrades for the front entrance. I also would have made the kitchen a little more spacious and used marble; as-is, I think it’s too dark. Otherwise it looks like a very elegant and livable home.

      I like it too. But there are some disappointments:
      – The HUGE pavilion next to the pool; it’s to massive for somethings that’s basically just a roof.
      – The stairs to the front door; two small stairs doesn’t look right; it should be one big one, or none at all (no stairs is better though).
      – Pool area is a bit…boring. Add some trees, some flowers or something like that.

      The rest is fine or good: office/library looks good (I would like some more space for books though), kitchen may be a bit small but still it looks way better than most kitchen’s I’ve seen here.
      Interior may be a bit plain but I rather have that than some over-decorated ghastly interior.

    I don’t like this as much as I thought I would. The exterior is a little dreary looking. I hate the pavilion next to the pool; the top floor looks like a battlement. The interior has some nice things, but in its current condition it’s simple to the point of being plain. I’m certain it’s staged, so that can be overlooked, since I hope someone would bring in a skilled decorator.

    Not usually a fan of this style, but I kinda dig it. Price sound decent, nice details inside, and great amenties.

    “Cima del Mundo” no doubt describes the egos of the residents in this neighborhood too…

    *ahem*

    The scenery is beautiful but I’m not feeling the home. Too plain, not enough eye-catching things going on inside or out. It just doesn’t have any personality.

    I’m being picky here…

    I would like to see the pool patio enlarged to include enough area for the chaise lounges. I don’t like people with dirty/ grass cuttings feet getting into a pool. Just my “issue”.

    I would also prefer a different style of window on this house with more panes.

    Like Iemand, I don’t like the front stairs. Go big or go home.

    I agree with Grrrowler about the staging. Looks completely NOT like someone lives here.

    Next… This is one of the trashiest houses I have ever seen. Come on, this is
    Montecito, not the San Fernando Valley. The scale is all wrong, the architectural
    reference is egregious, the materials are poorly selected and used. This is a
    tear-down.

    I like the house but am kind of freaked out by the mix of Spanish colonial architecture and the awful Tudor style treatment on the ceilings. Doesn’t go together at all.
