Montecito home Just SOLD!

boundary ArialJust sold, another great home estate site in Montecito. Located at 1920 Boundary Drive in Birnam Wood. Closing price $1,950,000

Possibly the best one acre lot in the gated Birnam Wood Country Club, complete with a vintage pool and pool house.  Once the pool house for the famed Bechtel Estate the home was split off during the creation of Birnam Wood Country Club.  Ideally situated off the golf course this understated home could be used as an eventual estate site or could be a great candidate for a remodel/addition.
