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.

The best

  • 5 of 5
Recently stayed at this luxurious property for a family reunion of 12 : 9 adults and 3 kids (ages 9-14) for 3 nights. We had the best vacation ever. The only time we left was to go to get groceries. The property is even larger than you can imagine from the photos. The kids loved to run outside and play in the pool, swing, play ping pong, bocce, ride bikes, trampoline, pick berries, and hang out in the media room (there's even xbox tho we didn't use it) and tower. The accomodations were spotlessly clean and the grounds were beautiful. It was a very relaxing trip for everyone. There were many comfortable places to hang out and a sound system throughout. There was plenty of room to spread out, but also room to eat together at the same kitchen table inside, as well as outside. The kitchen was large and easy to cook for the whole group. There was every kitchen item available, including excellent Calphalon pans, sharp knives, and a Wolf 6 burner range for my cooking husband, and a built in coffee/espresso machine for the caffeine addicts. We were met by the very friendly and helpful caretaker, Robert, who gave a complete tour of the property and instructions for all the gadgets (pool heating, sound, gas fireplaces, etc.) including the private walk to the beach. The entire property and experience reflects an attention to detail that I have not encountered in previous rentals, and the historic renovation is just spectacular. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing, beautiful setting with a large family group.
