This is where the Kennedys might have stayed if they had summered on the West Coast. Located in the prestigious gated community of Sea Meadow in Montecito, this glorious 7000 square foot French Normandy style home sits amidst beautifully landscaped grounds and tropical foliage. We imagine Jack and Bobby playing touch football on the beach, which is located mere steps from the home. Jackie would love the home's beautiful furnishings, fine arts and antiques. And the entire Kennedy clan would welcome the tranquility of this rare beachfront home with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and lovely ocean, island and coastline views.

Hand craftsmanship is evident throughout this spacious home, from the steel and glass doors that frame its ocean view upon entering, to the hand-hewn hardwood floors, custom crown mouldings and fine cabinetry found in almost every room. Let the sound of the waves soothe you to sleep each night in one of the 5 bedrooms, each with en-suite bath, creating comfort and privacy for larger groups. The upstairs master suite, with its oceanside balcony, romantic fireplace and beautifully appointed bath, is truly a private sanctuary.

This spectacular estate comes complete with a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with 6-burner Viking cook top range, Subzero refrigerator, dishwasher, large island with extra sink, butler’s pantry, built-in desk, and all the amenities that one would expect it a home of this grandeur. The gourmet kitchen opens to the ocean view family room with fireplace and breakfast nook. Enjoy your morning coffee or have a leisurely breakfast out on one of the many patios, as fishing boats head out to the Channel Islands and the surfers catch the early morning waves. There is also a formal dining room that seats 12.
