This is the Montecito lifestyle!

The first impression of this large 5000 s.f. mid century home designed by renown architect Richard Dodd, is it's openness, large ceilings, and the amazing panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel islands, the Clark Bird Refuge and famous Huguette Clark Estate, the SB Zoo, downtown Santa Barbara, and its harbor too, all while retaining total privacy.

In 2009 this home was completely remodeled and upgraded with the finest amenities and furnishings making it ideal for that modern but casual indoor/outdoor California lifestyle.

This home features a large pool, decks and grounds with beautiful mountain and ocean views, 3 Large bedrooms all with king size beds and massive ocean views, 4 Fireplaces, 3.5 baths which are finished with mahogany cabinets, marble & mosaic stone. With a seperate home office.

All bedrooms & almost every room in the home have amazing views of the Montecito Country Club, the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Santa Barbara and it's coastline all the way to Ventura.

The master suite includes a private living area/den with a wet bar, fireplace and flat screen TV, and a private patio, wonderful for getting away from it all, but also a great place for small children to sleep close to Mom & Dad.

State of the art entertainment systems are though out the home and Pool area.

The lower level includes a seperate living area/den with fireplace, sofa bed, flat screen TV, sound system, full bath with jacuzzi tub and a large view bedroom with flat screen TV. All on the pool level making ideal for a kids hang out.

The gourmet kitchen hosts sleek stainless steel appliances, a center island with gas cook top and a dining counter for 4. The adjacent dining room has seating for 6, enjoy the protected outdoor patio off the kitchen with a three tiered cascading stone waterfall, a large stainless steel gas BBQ, a teak dining table for 6 and separate conversation area with seating for 4.

Centrally located and a 5 minutes drive to either the upper or lower Villages of Montecito both with unique restaurants and chic shopping, Butterfly beach and the Four Season Hotel and Spa, and the Coral Casino. The SB Zoo, downtown Santa Barbara and harbor are all within a 10 minute or less drive.

Fabulous house, and property! So much better than the pictures! Hope to come again.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house and furnishings, breathtaking views from inside, and the outside decks, pool, and fire pit. I loved waking up every morning in the luxurious master suite seeing the ocean before me, then having my coffee and breakfast listening to the sounds of the birds and gorgeous fountain, while enjoying looking at the beautiful gardens. I had a wonderful vacation celebrating my 70th birthday, and Mother's Day with my daughters. We all look forward to returning to enjoy all that Montecito, and Santa Barbara have to offer from the pleasant weather, wineries, gourmet restaurants, and especially walking on the beach. We didn't want to leave, and look forward to coming back to this beautiful house. Thank you so much for offering your home for us to enjoy. Amanda George, Odessa, Texas

All you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented vacation homes from Telluride to Cape Town. This might be the best experience my family and I have had. The house itself is everything that is described. Both the indoor and outdoor living spaces are extremely comfortable. The view from the patio/deck overlooking the ocean is beautiful. The other patio off the kitchen is a great place to enjoy a meal. Or if you have the beautiful weather we had some time outside in the afternoon under some shade.

The owner was a pleasure to work with. She was always available if we had any questions and was very helpful with restaurant recommendations. We were coming down from the Pismo Beach area. She was nice enough to give us suggestions on where to grab lunch on our way down.

We had an incredible stay!

Stunning home in the rolling hills of Montecito.

  • 5 of 5

The home in the Montecito is awesome,beautiful and has fantastic views of the estuary and Pacific ocean. The home is located very close to the upper and lower Village in Montecito with plenty of restaurants bars boutique and shops to visit. The home had a Zen like feeling and it was a great place to celebrate my mothers 90th birthday. When we arrived we discovered the pool heater was not working the owner was very attentive and called a repair man who replaced the heater within a day. We highly recommend this property.
