One of Montecito's original Hilltop Baron estates, Solana represents the perfect marriage of modern sophistication and turn-of-the-century grandeur. The landmark estate spans 11.2 knoll-top acres with 360-degree views of the ocean, mountains and lights of Santa Barbara. Built in 1914 by Frederick Forrest Peabody, Solana has been exquisitely restored and infused with every modern amenity. Exceptional public rooms include an open kitchen, theater, beauty salon, fitness center, wine room, library and wood-paneled reception room with a French oak boiserie that belonged to William Randolph Hearst. French doors throughout open to romantic terraces and airy loggias. Impeccably maintained grounds include a central courtyard, 2-bedroom guest house, statuary, turtle pond, swimming pool and one of the finest botanical gardens in the area, with over 200 fruit trees and 500 rose bushes. Unrivaled in beauty, scale and pedigree, Solana counts John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King among its guests.
