Exotic Luxury in the heart of Montecito

Located in: Montecito
Kashmir, the ultimate one-of-a-kind experience!


Enter through a beautiful vintage gate in the most exclusive neighborhood near the upper village of Montecito, and a spectacular 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home awaits, immediately transporting you to Morocco and the Balearic Islands.

With lushly landscaped grounds and architectural elements reflecting international sophistication, Kashmir is intoxicating. The Moorish style home rebuilt in 1968 was meticulously restored in 2011 with a unique blend of colors, fabric textures and eclectic design. The owner's love of art, photography, music and fine furnishings is apparent throughout the property. Every amenity has been provided to assure a luxurious and flawless vacation experience.

The entry, with black onyx-style flooring and gilded ceiling, welcomes guests into this unique home. In the living room, stately French doors and windows span the wall of this bright space, inviting the outside in. On quiet evenings, entertain around the 1904 Steinway Baby Grand "O" series piano, or enjoy the 60" flat screen TV while relaxing in front of the warmly blazing fireplace.

The kitchen's whitewashed walls and Italian statuary marble set the stage for an unprecedented gourmet experience. A massive center island offers front row seating to oversee the culinary delights being created at the commercial-style range and with professional appliances and amenities provided here. Even the most meticulous chef will find every tool needed to create the most demanding dishes. A two-sided gas fireplace separates the kitchen from the formal dining room which seats 10 at a unique round table.

French doors from the kitchen and dining room offer immediate access to the fully enclosed central courtyard. This courtyard is truly the heart of this spectacular home with its sparkling pool, and plenty of lounge chairs around it's perimeter.

The nearby outdoor kitchen, with seating for 10 at a built-in banquette-style mosaic table, is a charming spot for a lavish sit-down dinner or a casual pool-party buffet.

From the kitchen, ascend stairs of exotic multi-colored hand painted Moroccan tiles to the posh Master Suite on the second floor. Crisp white walls are the blank canvas to this fresh contemporary room of black and white with crimson accents. A balcony, reached through massive wood sliding doors, acts as a loggia to watch activity in the pool courtyard below.

With the sun setting on the ocean views beyond, take refuge on the lounges or suspended rope hammock and melt into your dreams.

The marble Master Bathroom is beautifully appointed with step-down bathtub with shower-head, mirrored vanity and views of the backyard.

Nearby Bedroom #4, vibrant with colored fabrics and pillows atop extra long twin beds, is designed as a quiet reading den or cozy sleeping quarters.

Downstairs is Bedroom #2 (west) with a California king bed and French-door access to the private outdoor spa. The addition of a queen sleeper sofa makes it perfect for families with small ones that need to remain close. The California king bed in Bedroom #3 (north) faces the lush backyard, while more French doors offer immediate access to cool evening breezes or warm summer sunshine.

In both downstairs bathrooms, light streams in through tall windows and reflects off cool marble to create bright spaces. Large open glass showers complete the picture for a spa-like experience.

All the bedrooms, the living rooms, and the pool room have 50" or 60" flat screen TV's with Direct-TV. Music streams throughout the home from the built-in speaker system.

The "Pool Room," off the central courtyard, is a wonderfully versatile guest retreat. This stand-alone space with a private entrance can be used as a family game room, or as a 5th Bedroom Suite with a custom handcrafted California king day bed. The unique focal point of this entertaining room is the 1920 Brunswick tournament-sized pool table which was featured in a match between Minnesota Fats and Paul Newman in the movie "The Hustler". Flanked by an abundance of large French doors on both sides, this room can be opened up to create a continuous flow from the pool courtyard to the large shady backyard.

The outdoor landscaping was designed by renowned architect Eric Nagelman, and boasts massive boulders, native plants, and a seasonal creek. The park-like setting of the property speaks to the importance of preserving the natural landscape. During evening hours, the outdoor lighting is magnificent.

After each sunset, gather around the large open sand fire pit, or sneak away for a private soak in the spa under the stars.

Kashmir echoes of faraway places. Once inside the gates of this special property, you too, will feel worlds away. Visit again and again; as each stay promises to be a unique and memorable experience in luxury.
