Sotto Il Monte (1927), designed by renowned architect George Washington Smith, is one of Montecito's most revered historic estates. Sited on almost 12 acres, the Italian Renaissance-inspired Villa lives on over 18,000 square feet. The current owners have thoughtfully and fastidiously preserved the Villa and its ancillary structures along with the incredible mature gardens, many of them originally designed in 1927 by noted architect A.E. Hanson. The estate provides 8-bedrooms and 10-bathrooms in the main residence, a pool solarium, and features a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest house, 6-bedroom staff house, 2-level pool pavilion, and automobile storage, including a four-car garage in the motor court, plus a +/- 3,400 sqft climate-controlled collectors garage. The 25-meter swimming pool is surrounded by the "Great English Lawn" with championship tennis court sited just below.
