Welcome to ”The Four Leaf Clover” Estate, a home of good luck and fortune, with interiors so perfect, they’re like walk-in paintings! This ultra-luxurious, newly constructed, single-level, approximately 5,540 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 4.5 bath Neoclassical home with guest house and pool cabana is an architectural triumph by renowned architect Peter Becker. Featuring incredible historical provenance coupled with extraordinary modern interiors and amenities, art lover’s will rejoice with the open floor plan, voluminous ceilings and massive art walls throughout. Located on 1.73± acres of what was formerly known as the Four Leaf Clover Garden of Stanley McCormick’s 87+\- acre Riven Rock estate, this neighborhood is surrounded by a fortress of historic stone walls, privacy hedges and is mere seconds to Montecito’s best hiking trails, quaint shops, fine dining and beaches. Inspired by Francis Underhill, the home features a modern U-shaped design that allows every room of the house to flow seamlessly to the landscaped central courtyard, which is carefully designed on an axis so that the original staircase, the front entry, the Four Leaf Clover design, and pool all maximize the inherent symmetry of all the design elements.
The original garden paths of the McCormick Estate have been replicated by Landscape Architect, Byron DeBray, and much of the original sandstone stairs and four leaf clover design–now a lovely pond–have been restored with stone from the property. The two pool cabanas / guest suites with lovely en-suite baths, both of approximately 430 sq.ft., enjoy dramatic mountain views with walls that disappear opening onto the swimmers pool and spa.
The designer remodeled modern interiors boast grand living spaces bathed in natural light through south-facing walls of French doors. Rich wood floors, fine tile and marble work, and elegant chandeliers and wall sconces throughout. The modern gourmet kitchen features top of the line appliances, massive center island and an open floor plan that flows seamlessly with the dining area and butler’s pantry, perfect for entertaining.
The master bedroom has a custom fireplace, a master loggia with a Clearlight infrared sauna, and the two master bathrooms, each with spacious walk-in closets are joined together with an avant-garde “meet-me-in-the-middle” shower. The two guest suites, one with built-in cabinetry that functions as an executive office and the other that features a home theater, have beautiful en-suite baths.
This home is located within the highly coveted Cold Spring Elementary School District, which was ranked #1 and #2 in the State of California for math and English.
