Montecito, beloved getaway spot for Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey and other celebrities offers a combination of wonderful weather, ocean views and privacy. Views, architectural pedigree and single level living all coalesce at Le Ciel (The Sky), a stellar 6,000 sq ft residence on 2.5 acres in the heart of Montecito’s Golden Quadrangle, within close proximity to the famed San Ysidro Ranch.
Designed by famed architect, John Elgin Woolf in his classic Hollywood Regency style, this home went through remodels in 2008 and 2014 that updated the home while keeping its elegant lines.
The ingenious, single-level floor plan of Le Ciel, which appears as an X from above, features a central living space and four wings extending out offering privacy and extended sightlines.
The dining room offers undeniable glamour with views of both the ocean and the hillside. Nana-walls open to an outdoor dining area with a bold fireplace and babbling water feature.
The private pool looks back toward the house and opens onto a cabana with kitchenette. Four towering palms anchor the corners of this tranquil oasis.
This architectural treasure is listed for $15.95 million with Riskin Partners and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
