Description

Set on approximately 13.75-acres, this is the last remaining parcel of a magical garden oasis that has been in the same family since 1916. It was originally part of the beloved 70-acre Lolita Armour estate known as El Mirador, which loosely translates to ”see in all directions.” Today, you can cultivate your own piece of Montecito history with this exceptional jewel now available for the first time in over a century. The original two-story Mediterranean-style gate house was built in 1918 by Charles M. Urton, and offers 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and approx. 1,904 sq. ft. of living space. There’s also an approx. 3-acre building site suited for a grand custom-designed estate with abundant private water, and stunning garden and Santa Ynez Mountain views. Once known as one of Montecito’s most legendary estate gardens, this peaceful paradise radiates beauty, wonder and enchantment among its palm-lined driveway with towering 50-foot palms, verdant Japanese gardens, tranquil lagoons, long meandering paths lined with century-old exotic plant species, trees, and flowering shrubs, as well as The Eaton House ruins – now a stone grotto sanctuary complete with man-made stalactites. This one-of-a-kind property provides the perfect opportunity to build a dream home and explore this sanctuary of unparalleled splendor, serenity, and magic with a picturesque backdrop of majestic mountains and masterfully crafted century-old gardens.
