This is so stunningly beautiful that there’s no point in looking at any other houses. Spectacular design, elegant interiors, wonderful use of outdoor space, fantastic and lush courtyard and what a view. It is a true estate property.
Solana Estate is located in Santa Barbara, CA. Architect Francis T. Underhill has created this most significant estate in Montecito. The 22,727 square foot mansion features a number of bedrooms/bathrooms, grand reception rooms, library, gym, 3+ fireplaces, home theater, wine cellar, 3+ car garage, interior courtyard, expansive terraces and more.
House boasts hand-carved mahogany, European forged bronze hardware, museum quality mosaic tile floors, 18 century wall sconces and 17 century French oak paneling. The spectacular grounds feature endless lawns, manicured formal gardens, a swimming pool, guest house and reflecting ponds.
The interior is grand and elegant, but comfortable at the same time. You can actually imagine people living here. The rooms have superb subtle detailing, and everything has a very high taste level. The kitchen is one of the more successful that we’ve seen, although it borders on being too big.
The price is equally spectacular, but compared to so many lesser houses, $57.5 million is a real deal.
