Tucked amid mature oaks and gardens in Montecito’s coveted Golden Quadrangle, this tranquil mountain-view getaway consists of a four-bedroom main residence with a three-car garage, a freestanding guest cottage, an auxiliary garage that could also serve as a gym, and a courtyard featuring a pool, a spa, patios, and a pool house.

Woodwork and stone in various tones continue the emphasis on organic hues and provide a link with the outdoors.

Chic Country Club Bungalow

This stylish bungalow in Wellington’s prestigious Palm Beach Polo Golf and Country Club boasts a modern design that is both luxurious and comfortable. The light-filled open-plan living and entertaining areas have an inviting sense of space and an airy ambience thanks to soaring vaulted ceilings, abundant windows, and a dedication to neutral hues. The chef’s kitchen is accented with soothing white oak and eye-catching marble. The wraparound porch is ideal for relaxing with one of the area’s many lakes in full view.
