Minimum Rental Period: 3 Months
Absolute privacy and tranquility, awe-inspiring, panoramic Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands views, and one of the Santa Barbara area’s most dramatic homes come together on 80+/- beautiful acres to create this world-class ranch estate.
Beyond the security gated entrance, a lengthy serpentine driveway winds its way leisurely yet dramatically upward, past avocado orchards and native landscape, to the main residence where truly spectacular vistas and approximately 6,000 square feet of relaxed luxury await. The open floor plan, expansive walls of glass and soaring cathedral ceilings allow a seamless flow of indoor and outdoor beauty. Upstairs, the spacious master suite — with its fireplace, separate-level office, spacious bath and walk-in closet — commands privacy yet is convenient to the home’s guest wing and its two comfortable suites.
Designed with a lifestyle of casual sophistication in mind, the billiards and media rooms, primary and entertainment kitchens, outdoor spa and indoor lap pool offer a welcome respite from busy schedules and day-to-day distractions. Wrap-around decks provide alfresco viewing of the ranch’s approximately 3,575 income-producing avocado trees and dozens of acres of natural splendor – all set against a backdrop of coastline, ocean and islands. Secluded in their own area, two guest cottages await the most discerning visitors.
Resting high in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains, this fabulous property is, nonetheless, just a short distance from the welcoming beaches of Montecito, Summerland and Santa Barbara. Summerland’s popular antique shops, the renowned shopping and dining in Montecito’s “Villages,” and all of Santa Barbara’s cultural and recreational opportunities are mere minutes away.
