Sometimes, when idly thumbing through House & Garden magazine or Architectural Digest, one happens upon a dazzling little home that really delights the eye and fires the imagination. It is the perfect retreat – the one you have often dreamed about. Often an initial thought is how did the current owner even find such a gem in the first place? The second – with a tinge of envy – is that someone has had the skill to create such an enchanting interior which makes the very best of unique and memorable architectural detail.
Getting the stuff of dreams so right is not easy. It takes great taste and rare opportunity. It also takes skill and time.
So here is a dream that seems pulled from the pages of the very finest interiors magazines. It has it all – comfort, simplicity, charm, finish, detail and opportunity. In real estate when the perfect opportunity comes along, grab it! It is often a one-chance deal.
But I have missed something. Of course! How silly of me – where it is. How could I have left out the location? This little classic is in Montecito, Santa Barbara, California. And that just puts the tin lid on it, for if anyone were to have a remarkable rustic-white retreat between pink and purple mountains and azure ocean then Montecito is the dream to end all dreams.
