American comedian Steve Martin, (formally Stephen Glenn), recently listed his Montecita property in Santa Barbara for sale with the famous real estate agent Suzy Perkins. Known as one of his most cherished villas, which is said to be partially underground, it is a beautiful hill-top property designed by the descendent of the famous US-based architect Roland Coate named Roland E. Coate, Jr.
Listed for $ 11 million (approx INR 68 cr) and assembled on 5.86 acres of lands, here is a quick virtual tour of the modern contemporary villa.
Located in the secluded meadows of California, near Montecita, Steve Martin has his two-decade-old mansion ready for auction. Lying in a bed of natural habitat on the hilltop, the partially underground house offers exclusivity of surrounding, offering a beautiful morning view of the rising sun, away from the infuriating noises of city life.
Built across 7,377 sq ft, the four bedroom modern mansion bathes in luxury in a large white concrete and glass structure, perched on a hill top.
An unfinished cemented look with minimalistic furniture in wood and stones is how Martins loved his space. While soft carpets dress the marble flooring, colourful sofas and chairs with nouveau style paintings and wrought iron table tops adorn the house. What’s more, one cannot miss the life-size glass panel windows giving the owner a panoramic view from the hilltop.
The way to the mansion is led by a smooth concrete driveway on a winding path, leading cars to the parking area which is right on top of the roller pinned roof of the trench looking bungalow.
The house has four bedrooms, each designed with attached washrooms, along with a separate powder room near the living area. In addition, two bedrooms and bathrooms are also accommodated in the guestroom that is adjacent to the house.
Adding a dramatic element to the house is the huge concrete chimney that runs up from the fireplace inside the house.
The dining area, furnished with a wooden 10-seater wooden dining table, offers a view of the luscious green forest that runs alongside the house.
Owners can enjoy a rejuvenating weekend in the abstractly shaped swimming pool, around which are white canopies perfect for sun-bathing.
