A Birnam Wood home represents a quintessential relaxed luxury that epitomizes the Montecito, California lifestyle. That lifestyle is manifest in this singular nearly 6,000 square foot residence. It rests on close to three-quarters of an acre at the end of a quiet cul de sac and adjacent to the 11thgreen of the prestigious Birnam Wood Golf Club. Surrounded by sprawling lawn, lovely gardens and majestic trees, the home is imbued with an ambiance of subdued sophistication.

Where Casual Comfort Meets Cosmopolitan Class

First, a touch of refinement

Introducing the riches within, impressive front doors are flanked by panes of leaded glass. Their opening reveals a dramatic foyer with highly-polished inlaid stone floor. Two sets of Tuscan columns carry one’s eye through to the living room, with its salon parquet floor, tray ceiling, fireplace with stone mantel, and French doors to the rear patio and gardens.

Nearby, the formal dining room is nothing short of elegant. It, too, features a stylish parquet floor, tray ceiling, and French doors presenting a not-so-subtle invitation to an alfresco repast. The room’s fireplace is of carved wood and adds a distinctly European sensibility.

Then, refreshing relaxation

There is a feeling of expansiveness manifested in the Great Room: where kitchen and family room unite. While the kitchen features abundant cabinetry, a large and versatile center island and high-end appliances, the family room – with its soaring cathedral ceiling and sets of French doors to the grounds — offers a warming fireplace flanked by built-in entertainment center-friendly shelving.

Two wonderful master bedroom suites grace this exceptional Birnam Wood home, and an intimate study hosts its own fireplace as well as floor-to-ceiling bookcases.

The pleasures of place

While what is within a home is important, what is without defines its place. This classic residence, surrounded by lawns, mature trees, a charming rose garden and private course, claims a very special place, indeed. Beyond its immediate surroundings are stunning mountain views, and convenience to world-class amenities such as Montecito’s Upper Village shops and dining, spectacular beaches and award-winning schools.
