"The dreams that you wish will come true"

With the Mega-Millions jackpot at $200,000,000, and with a few minutes to daydream I have found the perfect home to buy when we win. Often times when I go on these property websites I'll see these mega-homes that are very "glam" on the outside but then you go inside and the owners, thinking that they have great taste and don't need a decorator, fill the place with cheap or knock-off furniture that is neither the right style or scale for the "environment". I would change nothing about this home. It is a Mediterranean masterpiece that is on Riven Rock Road in Montecito, California. The price tag? A mere $19,500,000. Wish us luck!!

The front facade. I love the neatly clipped grass between the paving stones.

This beautiful double staircase in the entryway is lit by an antique Murano glass chandelier hanging from a frescoed dome.

The dining room is so chic in muted grays with crystal chandelier and sconces. I love the cameo-backed French fauteuils covered in velvet.

What a beautiful spot to play the piano in the morning.

The "salon" with two fireplaces is absolutely stunning. Muted shades of gray and fawn are punctuated with splashes of color from flowers and plants.

The kitchen has great built in cabinetry for your china and crystal.

This is the solarium. Casual but "smart". I love the Empire-style lighting.

The oak paneling in the library is just lovely.

The master bedroom

Isn't this pool pavilion patio beautiful?

Several views of the house from the garden and aerial views as well.

I love this little "folly" in the garden.
