Property Description: MLS # 07-1679

Immediately, one gets the feeling that this transcendent structure somehow evolved organically yet systematically.  Indeed, it did; with assistance from architects Barry Berkus and Ellen Bildsten as well as its past and current owners. 
Beginning as a mere remnant of an old fruit packing plant sitting amidst a 55-acre lemon orchard, this magnificent 5,000+ square foot piece of residential contemporary art stands on approximately 1.3 acres, amidst spectacular Ken Kay designed landscaping.  The centerpiece of the grounds is “Coming Together,” a stunning fountain sculpture created by the present owner, a renowned sculptor.  Embellishing the property’s exterior drama are undulating lawns, more than 200 rose bushes, two mature Live oaks and the sole vestige of the property’s citrus heritage, one of the original lemon trees. 

Entering the home, one is impressed with the masterful integration of interior and exterior light and space.  The experience is one of being immersed in a sea of radiance; the structure and its great expanses of glass merely supporting luminosity.
The entry opens to a gallery of glass, and a large living room, surrounded by glass on two sides, with high ceilings, opening to two gardens. The family room and dining room have large glass openings and extensive garden views, connected by an open design, maple and granite kitchen. The home is replete with chandeliers, faucets, and bath fixtures, designed by Europe’s leading designers. Four bedrooms plus an office solarium, three and a half baths, a large studio and separate garage complement the home’s gracious open floor plan. A private roof deck has a commanding ocean vita as well as a view of the majestic mountains of Montecito.
