Dream Home: Santa Barbara Beauty

I came across this home and just had to share it with you.

It use to be the home of talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, they sold it last year.

This stunning villa was designed by Wallace Frost in the early 1930 and has since been restored.

Prominently featured in Ellen’s 2015 book Home, The Villa, as its known, was designed by architect Wallace Frost as a residence for himself after returning from living in Italy. 
Many years later, acclaimed interior designer John Saladino undertook an extensive five-year restoration of the property for his personal use. 

Featuring classical, Old World details reminiscent of 17th century Italian villas like a barrel-tiled roof, terracotta surfaces, and wide-plank hardwood floors, the 10,500-square-foot home includes six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, nine fireplaces, multiple libraries, and a guest annex. 
Not to mention expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, harbor, and mountains.

 Some of the modern renovations include an indoor-outdoor entertaining pavilion known as Jordan Hall, which features an infinity swimming pool, a sunken tennis court, and Japanese soaking tub, among other incredible amenities.
