Montecito, California:

An affluent and stunning community tucked between the mountains and the sea in Santa Barbara County, Montecito has a near-perfect year-round climate. One of the most exclusive communities in the world, Montecito is home (or second-home) to numerous celebrities and billionaires. The community is dotted with lush private golf courses, fashionable shopping and dining, stunning ocean and beaches, and grand estates and stylish cottages. The “Hedgerow District” is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods. Lined with hedges and greenery, the Hedgerow section of Montecito features some of the most coveted properties in Santa Barbara Country.  

The Property:

Designed by architect James Osborne, the 3500 square foot, 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom main residence was built in 1920 and sits on 4 acres of flat, gated land with an impressive private drive. The lush, mature vegetation was planned for utmost privacy by landscape artist Sydney Baumgartner. The entire manor is reminiscent of old European estates: unique and rarely available in this country. The secluded property is just minutes from Coast Village, The Biltmore Santa Barbara Hotel, San Ysidro Ranch, the Yacht Club and the Marina, and the polo fields.  


The main house boasts a sunny great room, a library/study, living room, and dining room all with hardwood floors and French doors that open to the elegant and beautiful landscape and gardens. A separate 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 485 square foot guest cottage lets guests visit in comfortable style, while the separate pool house, 790 square feet, has another bedroom and a bathroom that can be used as an office, gym, or additional guest house. A very large, semi-enclosed, U-shaped carriage house, roughly 4,790 square feet, is perfect for housing a private car collection or for use as a theatrical or music pavilion. Stables and paddocks can accommodate horses, and 5 fire hydrants are placed around the property for added security and safety.  

At A Glance:

Private, large estate with luxurious amenities, pool, stables, and separate guest house, carriage house, and pool house. European style and living in an extremely desirable neighborhood in affluent Montecito. 4 gated acres of lush landscape and vegetation with private drive.
