Enjoy our quintessential Montecito Ranch Style Beach House located just down the street from the world famous Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel and Butterfly Beach. The perfect blend of style and comfort, the home is beautifully appointed with designer furnishings throughout.
The house itself is a bright, open, and airy ranch style home with a main house and guest cottage. The main house contains 2 large bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. There is a bath with double sinks and a tub shower and a bath with a stall shower. The third bedroom is a free standing guest cottage (just 5 feet from the main house) with a queen size bed and its own bath. The lot is fairly large at about 14,000 square feet so there is lots of room to roam with grassy yards and patios.
The inviting living room has a romantic wood burning fire place, over sized down sofa and chair and plasma TV. The living room leads to the backyard patio with Smith and Hawken teak dining set and BBQ where you can enjoy your evening meal. Or if you prefer, the large kitchen has an indoor BBQ to satisfy your needs. The property has large grassy areas for the kids to enjoy and a quiet porch to just sit back and enjoy the latest novels. This perfectly situated home provides easy access to all that Montecito and Santa Barbara have to offer.
The location of the property in Montecito is truly wonderful. It is located on Hill Rd. The house is close to everything. A one block stroll takes you to magnificent Butterfly Beach where you can swim, sunbathe and watch the waves roll in. Just a few hundred feet takes you to the world famous Four Seasons Biltmore Resort where you can watch the sunset while enjoying afternoon tea or a drink on the oceanfront terraces. You can also pamper yourself in their Four Star Mobil Rated World Class Spa with a message, facial, or eucalyptus steam bath.
Walk two short blocks to the shopping and restaurants of Coast Village Road and the Friday Morning Montecito Farmer's Market. You can bike, jog, or walk along the coastal Channel Drive bike path, past the Music Academy, through the Bird Refuge and over to East Beach and beyond. Downtown Santa Barbara, State Street, the Harbor, Stearns Wharf, and miles of beaches are all at your finger tips.
The Central Coast Wineries of "Sideways" fame are less than an hour's drive as is the Chumash Casino Resort. Just 20 minutes up the coast, golf at the magnificent seaside Sandpiper golf course and enjoy a relaxing spa treatment at Bacara Resort when you are through.
You are also just an hour's drive from Malibu, an hour and a half from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills.
My wife and I have been married for almost 10 years (celebrating our 10 year anniversary is the purpose of the exchange!) Our 10 month old daughter will be joining us on our trip. We have traveled together throughout Europe (France, Italy, Greece, Germany, England) and cannot wait to go back. We love our home in Santa Barbara and we know you will too!
