For $22.5 Million you can be the new owner of a luxe mansion at 838 Knapp Drive. Originally built in 1954, it underwent renovation in the early 2000s. Handling the latter was Jack Lionel Warner of the Warner Group. Buyers are looking at more than four acres of neoclassical real estate with a plan that spans approximately 8,737 square feet.

This home is in a “historic neighborhood frequented by global dignitaries and socialites alike.” A stay at the 838 Knapp Drive mansion is like a trip to the past. Many consider its location as picturesque with majestic views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. 200-year-old oak and eucalyptus trees also line the grounds of the property.

According to the listing, the site where the mansion now stands was a music pavilion in the early 1900s. It was awesome of the architects to incorporate the original elements into the building. The use of stone and timber within its walls exudes an inviting atmosphere.

Skylights and large windows allow sunlight to bathe the interiors of the 838 Knapp Drive mansion. Marsha Kotlyar Estate Group says the residence features Lutron lighting, imported Brasilia Italian marble, and Zuber Mural wallpaper. It comes with a Roman pool, a lighted tennis court, a Bocce court, and putting green, for your recreational requirements.

There are two separate 2-car garages to keep your automotive collection safe from the elements. Take a stroll around the verdant gardens to relax and enjoy the fresh clean air. The breathtaking landscaping here is the work of Sydney Bumgartner. The 838 Knapp Drive mansion is not likely to stay on the market for too long.
