Old World Charm Meets Modern Luxury in Carpinteria
Benvenuto a Villa Sevillano! Beautifully situated on 22-sprawling acres, this classic Italian Villa truly evokes old world charm while offering the amenities and modern luxuries of recent construction. Magnificently manicured grounds encompass terraced formal gardens, rose gardens, orchards of citrus trees, and over 200 mature olive trees for which the property is named. The equestrian facilities are comprised of a 45-stall stable as well as an equestrian field of specialized hybrid Bermuda grass and an underground irrigation system. The main house boasts over 10,000 sq. feet, including 6 bedrooms, 9.5 baths, and exquisitely designed indoor/outdoor living spaces making use of the perfect climate for which Santa Barbara is known.
The gated entrance leads to an impressive drive, past a circular way, which opens up to a large grass-tiled motor court flanked by dual garages. The red-tiled roof, white stucco exterior and limestone columned entrance set against the expansive green gardens and the Pacific Ocean make for a dramatic impression.
With an open layout, high ceilings and generously placed custom mahogany french doors, the main floor makes use of the Villa's private location and majestic vistas with an array of both indoor and outdoor living spaces.
The two-story Foyer greets guests with views of the field and ocean framed by a wall of French doors opposite the front entrance. Here, the elevator can be used to access all three levels or the majestic grand staircase, constructed from beautiful Lagos Azul Granite, can be taken to the Upper Floor.
Open and spacious, the fully stocked gourmet kitchen incorporates seamless white-rhino granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and custom wood cabinetry. The pantry and butler's rooms include a sink, refrigerator and granite topped prep counter.
Off the kitchen, the airy family room offers high ceilings with hand-stenciled beams, multiple sets of French doors affording views of the pool and gardens, a flat screen TV and comfortable seating. French doors lead from the windowed breakfast nook to an outdoor dining patio that seats ten.
The living room features oak parquet flooring, a beautiful stone mantel gas fireplace, hand-stenciled ceiling beams and two sitting-areas. Two walls are almost entirely comprised of French doors, leading to a rear patio with a serene fountained lotus pond and a front covered veranda with field views and areas for lounging and casual dining.
From the foyer, take either the elevator or the walk the impressive grand staircase up to the second floor. The landing is furnished with two comfortable reading chairs and a shelf of books from which to choose. The Master Suite is entered from this sitting room, while three Guest Rooms are located down the West Wing hallway.
The Master Suite offers 1,200 sq. ft. of comfort and luxury complete with travertine and marble tiled bathrooms, ornate ironwork, and 50-year "Pisolo" linens and bedding. Two sets of French doors open to your private, oversized patio overlooking the equestrian field, with sweeping views of the Pacific beyond.
Reached by elevator or stairs on either end of the house, the lower floor houses the recreational heart of the Villa with direct access to the equestrian field.
Guest Room 6 doubles as the Villa's staff quarters because of its convenient location with direct kitchen access and private entrance.
The generously sized Laundry Room houses a Whirlpool washer and dryer, ample storage space, a sink and an abundance of countertop workspace. A chute allows for easy transport from the Butler's Pantry and third floor directly to the laundry facilities.
Complete with rock-lined walls and backlit custom storage racks, the Wine Room provides the perfect backdrop to taste the various local vintages.
