Welcome to Villa Montecito! This one story architectural masterpiece designed by James D. LaRue and built by Heyl Homes was awarded the 2004 Parade of Homes "Best of Show" along with 6 more awards. Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac with multi-level stone patios and verandas that create an elegant oasis for entertaining friends, colleagues or dining al fresco with your family. A protected and private greenbelt surround the custom pool and spa giving your spacious backyard a serene environment. Enter through an inviting courtyard that is shaded by a towering oak by day and lit by an enchanting stone fireplace in the evening. Enjoy the cascading fountains that create a lullaby of tranquil sounds. Custom Cantera style doors embrace you and pull you into the grand living and dining room with gorgeous Mesquite wood floors, exposed beam ceilings, and exquisite Venetian plaster walls. The detail and astonishing design came together beautifully in this home creating an Old World estate complimented by modern touches.

The kitchen flows seamlessly into the breakfast room and a more intimate family room with gas fireplace and picturesque views of the pristine backyard and greenbelt. A dramatic Master Suite boasts stunning granite vanities and soft sage Venetian plaster, resembling a boutique European day-spa.
