Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and I practiced in my solo office for 16 years. As I worked as a chiropractor I began purchasing houses and apartments. Many of them were fixers. I had fun refurbishing them! A few years ago I sold my Chiropractic business and now I manage my apartments and vacation rentals full time! I grew up in Fresno, CA and then moved to Santa Barbara to attend college. I then moved to Los Angeles area to attend Chiropractic College. After graduating I returned to Santa Barbara! I couldn't stay away!! I now live in Montecito in the Guest House of the Sycamore Canyon Estate!!

Why the Owner Chose Montecito:
When I was looking for my next property to buy, I knew I wanted to find one in Montecito. This is because the properties in Montecito can be large with an acre or more and because it is gorgeous, peaceful, safe and desirable! I wanted a large Estate with a guest house, 1 acre, pool, many bedrooms and bathrooms and on a large beautiful street with a long driveway. I found all that in The Sycamore Canyon Estate!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The unique benefits of the Sycamore Canyon Estate are that it is located in the heart of Montecito on a large beautiful Estate amidst the movie stars and the rich! Oprah lives right around the corner! It is also right across the street from Ganna Walska's Lotusland. Look online to learn about this famous property that is seasonally open to the public!
