Villa Bella - Umbrian Inspired Coastal Estate in Montecito

With grand style and panoramic coastal views, Villa Bella is an architectural masterpiece inspired by villas in the Italian countryside. Down an olive tree lined driveway, the home is perched high in the Montecito foothills, with sweeping south facing views that frame the magnificent coastline.

Spectacular architectural elements include Italian marble, ironwork, distressed wood, and French Libourne limestone flooring. Under soaring ceilings, walls of massive iron framed bi-fold doors and windows offer unsurpassed scenic vistas from nearly every room. A long balcony spans the length of the home, offering a year round vantage point to enjoy the natural beauty of this impeccable home and surrounding landscape. Bi-fold doors offer the option of bringing the outdoors and indoors together seamlessly.

The grand entry of the home has arched iron and glass doors, inviting guests in to experience breathtaking ocean views through a wall of glass doors and windows. The opulent marble entry is flanked by two distinct Living Room seating areas, each with its own fireplace, carved stone hearths, unique art, and furnishings of the finest quality. In true luxury style, the Living Room is also quite comfortable and welcoming.

In the Gourmet Kitchen, 2 marble islands anchor this large open space, creating vast options for buffet style service or holiday meal preparations with ease. Designed with chefs and caterers in mind, the kitchen also boasts 2 dishwashers, 2 Sub Zero refrigerators, 6 burner Viking stove with dual ovens, Miele Built-in Coffee System, full size wine cooler, and fully equipped walk-in pantry. Le Creuset and All Clad cookware, high quality knives and service items are just a few of the fine quality tools that make this kitchen a culinary dream.

The Dining Room round table seats 6-8 and is situated between the Kitchen and Family Room with stunning views from this central location. Glass doors open to the balcony with another generously sized dining table that seats up to 10, with the vast expansive coastline as the backdrop. There is no finer place to relax under the stars and enjoy quality time with family and friends after dark.

With another massive fireplace, the Family Room ambiance is relaxed with simple elegance. Sliding doors disappear into stucco walls creating seamless flow between the coastal views and inside comfort.

Natural colors and fine luxury linens define the Master Suite that is restful and luxurious. With a fireplace, sitting area, ocean views and French doors to grounds, this sanctuary offers respite and romance.

The Master Bathroom has a spa bathtub tucked beneath picture windows with ocean views, a large walk-in shower, and adjacent, spacious walk-in closets. As with every room in this home, French doors lead to the grounds and a tranquil fountain adds just the right amount of background ambiance to this wing.

The south Guest Suite has King-size bed, French doors to grounds, ocean views, flat screen TV, and full bathroom with a walk-in shower. The north Guest Suite also offers a king-size bed, front yard views and flat screen TV. The Hall Bathroom with walk-in shower can also be accessed from this room creating a full guest suite. Completing the upstairs accommodations is an Office with large desk, and chaise lounges just outside on the veranda to draw working guests out to enjoy the serene landscape.

Downstairs, the fourth Guest Suite occupies the entire space. Echoing the same natural colors, fine linens and elegance, this wonderful room offers a Living Room with fireplace, queen-size bed in separate alcove, French doors opening to the infinity pool and grounds, flat screen TV, and full Bathroom with walk-in shower.

Without exception, it is the outdoor expansive property and views that sets the tone for an impeccable vacation experience. The crystal clear infinity pool, with built-in spa, blends into the landscape amid rolling green lawns and scenic points of view. For fun, a Bocce Ball court sits perched above the grounds adjacent to an aromatic formal garden of lavender and roses, offering the quintessential Italian touch to this grand pristine property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guestbook at property) Our stay at Villa Bella was simply amazing! Your house, art, grounds, view are all so beautiful. Thank you, thank you, for allowing us to celebrate Marcie's 65th birthday with our family at your home away from home retreat in Montecito. It will certainly be a very joyous memory for our family to always treasure.
