If you love the charming look of the French countryside but not ready to move abroad, this estate in Montecito, California offers a chance to experience a more European style while safely ensconced in the land of blue skies and celebrity neighbors. The garden is surrounded by a 45-acre nature preserve and 45 acre estate for added privacy. Built 10 years ago, the home was designed with an eye toward creating a slice of the French countryside. The two acre property includes a large single-level main house, a separate guest house, garage, and a beautiful courtyard. The main house and guest house have high ceilings, lime washed walls and handmade tile floors updated with one comfort you usually won’t find in Provence, radiant heat. The gourmet kitchen has an attached loggia for indoor-outdoor living. The home also features a magical landscape including bridges, ponds, cottages and what appears to be a rather fancy aviary. Another thing that makes this home charming is the vines crawling all over the outside of the structure, which is not that unusual but in this case it looks like the vines have come inside sprawling across the ceiling.
