Experience California Cool at 627 Stone Meadow Lane

Property of the Week: A single-story family home all but designed for entertaining.

By Kim Ayling

Located just off sought-after Picacho Lane in Montecito, Santa Barbara County, 627 Stone Meadow Lane is the epitome of California cool.

Situated on its own secluded cul-de-sac for utmost privacy, the single-story property was first built in 1962 and, although it has been updated for the 21st century, still exudes that mid-century modern, ranch-style feel. Presented fully finished, 627 Stone Meadow Lane has a subtle neutral color scheme dotted with earthy tones and materials.

The focal point of the home is an airy, high-ceilinged living room which, thanks to a floor-to-ceiling pocket door, connects with the outdoor social areas. Adjacent to this is a space dubbed the ‘California Room’ thanks to its fourth wall being fully open to the garden – a feature that could only be plausible in the Golden State.

Beyond, the thoughtfully landscaped outdoor area features a kitchen area, several dining spaces, a sauna, a white-bottom swimming pool with an inset Jacuzzi function, and even an area for outdoor movie projections. Back inside, the modern kitchen offers yet more entertaining potential, with dining space for 10 slotted amid the LaCanche stove and large Calcutta marble kitchen island. Other kitchen features include True Refrigeration system, Zip water system and Waterworks fixtures.

Like the living areas, this kitchen is designed to deftly bring the outside in, this time via a huge garden-facing retractable window, with counter seating on the outside. A separate, more formal dining area is flanked by a handsome fitted bar complete with a wine fridge, mixology station and ample built-in storage – cocktail hour will never be the same again. Elsewhere, the state-of-the-art media room has built-in surround sound, custom seating, a bar and blackout curtains, perfect for family movie nights.

The five bedrooms are equally as stylish; four secondary rooms all have en-suite bathrooms and a smart color scheme, while the grand master suite comes complete with a walk-in closet, freestanding bathtub and an indulgent marble steam shower. Adjoining the beautifully presented property is a covered garage with ample space for two vehicles, as well as an open drive for extra guest parking.
