    Excellent. Don’t know about the red/pink dining room but I could certainly live with it if I owned this house. Not sure about pricing in Montecito but I imagine everything is expensive, love this home though regardless.

    Gorgeous, inside and out. It has a solid “old money” feel about it. The grounds are beautiful, and I adore the long sloping rear lawn. Even though the interior isn’t my style and I would update it if it were mine (the furnishings are pretty boring), it’s formal and comfortable at the same time, and very attractive. I absolutely love the foyer; it feels welcoming and grand without being ostentatious.

    Love the exterior facade and grounds. Not a fan of all that ivy. The place has some nice bones but I would gut the kitchen and re do the interior. I am not a fan of large foyers and big ass staircases but I found this one a little dark and underwhelming-I do like a foyer that is centered. The pool needs a boost too.

    Very nice indeed. Only thing I don’t like is the single-door entrance foyer. The ivy is also starting to encroach into “unkempt” territory. Finally, the kitchen is a bit of a letdown, and the granite on the island looks like it was bought on sale and not re-sized. Otherwise, it is stunning. The rear view with the lake in the foreground and mountains in the background is particularly breathtaking.

    I hate the pool. When you pay 34M, you better get a really fancy pool. This one looks like one you would find behind a tract house.

    On the other hand…that backyard…and the view…spectacular.

      Yeah totally agree. The pool is weak. I’d make that baby two or three times as large, maybe even redo it and create a grotto. If you got money to buy this place, then you got money to redo the pool lol.

    That is just way too much ivy for me. It’s nice I really like the rustic kitchen although the stone on the island looks….off. The price is……yeah….

    Beauiful. Beautiful grounds, beautiful house, beautiful neighborhood. i like the way the house has naturally high ceilings without all the forced two story looks popular in so many houses. This house looks incredibly comfortable.

    Too expensive and the massive ivory is a turn off. That red dining room just screams color overkill. Maybe if it were listed for say half the price I think certain things could be overlooked.

    With the exception of some of the frumpy furniture, I absolutely LOVE this place. So gorgeous.

    I love the exterior and the grounds. However, aside from the library, the interior is a let down in my opinion.

    A spetacular home, but too much mowing & dusting for me.

    After about 3 years on the market, looks like it will be sold for $20-22 million. Seems about in line with rest of recent Montecito high end real estate market.
