Provence style mansion

As I mentioned in my last post…

last week was very busy and wonderful…

and I wondered if I showed you some

photos if you could guess where I was…

Mop top orange trees in Versailles style crates

mark the path from the  gravel drive to the

front door of this lovely “Modern Provence”

style home….

Montecito gardens

Carefully maintained hedges line the gravel driveway…

swathes of lupine smolder in a purple haze at back…

The geometry of the house is simple and striking

at the same time…

Here between the two cypresses a touch of Provence…

This tree reminds me of the old Aleppo pines at Le Mas de Baraquet,

Ginny Magher’s home near St- Rémy de Provence in my earlier post

Terrace View in Provence here

Artful vines allowed to sketch their graceful tendrils

across wall and window…

A magical house in a magical place….

Found on my travels to meet a wonderful person…

Any guesses…? More clues to follow….

This gorgeous house was photographed from my tour of Montecito in Santa Barbara County

with Jermaine of French Kissed. We don’t know who lives here…but isn’t it gorgeous!
