SEA RANCH - HISTORIC RETREAT AT HAMMONDS MEADOWS

Montecito House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Sea Ranch - Historic Carriage House at Hammonds Meadows

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

Steeped in rich California history, Sea Ranch peacefully sits on 4 acres of prime Montecito coastal land; an easy walk to three beautiful beaches and Montecito's lower village. On this same land, the native Chumash Indians lived in the village named Shalawa. In the mid 1800’s the property was converted to rich farm land. Today, the vast open spaces have been maintained, and the original footprint of the carriage house barn has been thoughtfully preserved. Enter the property through private wooden gates on a street named for the family who owned the property at the turn of the century. Statuesque eucalyptus, palms and oak trees stand sentry around this very private property. Rolling lawns, shaded sitting areas, and wildflower studded woods paint a rich landscape on this property.

Walking trails and wooded paths lead to the beach, and to a legendary Montecito surf spot known as Hammonds Reef. This completely remodeled residence is rich in warmth and rustic ambiance, while offering every modern convenience and upscale amenity possible. Throughout the home, cedar wood planks and beams from the original structure have been thoughtfully recycled. A combination of waxed white oak floors, French reclaimed terra cotta tile and unique doors and windows add to the impeccable craftsmanship feel of this exquisite property. The kitchen is everything a gourmet chef expects with professional appliances that include a 6 burner Wolf range, wine cooler, coffee station, Sub-zero refrigerator and 3 dishwashers for effortless meals and entertaining. The custom banquette with expanding table tops creates two separate smaller eating areas or expands for larger groups and family style dining.

The expansive views of the pool area and surrounding grounds outside become the perfect backdrop to this comfortable and welcoming space. In a wing off the kitchen are two well appointed bedrooms ; one with twin bunk beds, the other with a queen-size bed. These rooms share a full bathroom with a bathtub. Just outside this area is a warm outdoor shower for surfers and beach goers to use before entering the home. This also provides a separate entrance for this wing of the house. In the living room, soaring beam ceilings of cedar rise above a massive 2 story sandstone fireplace. This fireplace was fashioned around the original blacksmith’s furnace structure in the carriage house. French doors from both the living room and bedroom open to the backyard with pool views. The second cottage, a quaint bougainvillea covered studio, has a full kitchen and is easily accessible from the inner driveway courtyard. Either cottage is an excellent option for separate families, or domestic help.

Each cottage and the pool house have laundry facilities. Comfortable year-round outdoor living is the goal of this fabulous property. Extensive walking paths and multitudes of peaceful vignettes dot this picture perfect property. An outdoor BBQ & kitchen features a 5-zone grill with rotisserie, ice maker, refrigerator and dishwasher. The amenity-rich list continues with a bocce ball court, built-in ground level trampoline, outdoor heated shower, fire pit, fire table and bikes for rides to nearby Miramar and Butterfly beaches. The deep blue pool with lap lane, built-in 10 person spa, and Baja shelf is the focal point of the grounds. A convenient pool-house has a full bath and dressing room, along with a washer and dryer for washing beach towels and swimwear. As the final outdoor touch, a 50' flat screen TV is mounted above the outdoor wood burning fireplace. Sea Ranch is resort-style living of the finest caliber.

Great place to relax

Sea Ranch has been a wonderful place to spend time with our family. Some come from Santa Monica, some from Spokane, Washington and some from California's Central Valley. What a great place to relax and have fun. Beach walking, biking, swimming, eating outdoors, bocchi ball games... Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

All Encompassing

(Transcribed from guest comments sent to the company)

It was the perfect family get away and we found it to be all encompassing. The weather was perfect as you know albeit a bit hot but it was truly ideal. The first week I had family from the east coast and the second week we had a few friends from LA including the friends who rented a place this summer in carp and we talked about how well run and stocked the properties are, truly professional. We will be back and put the word out as to what a great value and what great properties you represent.

Total Enjoyment!

We had a memorable week at sea ranch and we will be back!
You have put such great thought into every detail of your
home, assuring your guest total enjoyment. Our son was
celebrating his wedding weekend at the San Ysidro Ranch,
Four Seasons and other venues! All magnificent, but we loved
coming home to Sea Ranch at night.

We love this little slice of heaven. It's beautiful and
incredible and yet so comfortable and inviting, the latter
being the best part for a big family gathering. Everyone was
so happy here the whole time, that we would really really
like to not go home! You have thought of everything to make
this place so amazing and very spacious. Thank you Thank
you. What a gift!

Everyone had a great time and enjoyed our stay immensely. We loved the house and grounds and hope to come back again. The beach was a big hit too! The website makes this place look spectacular but the reality is even better!
