Montecito estate description

Steeped in rich California history, Sea Ranch peacefully sits on 4 acres of prime Montecito coastal land; an easy walk to three beautiful beaches and Montecito's lower village. On this same land, the native Chumash Indians lived in the village named Shalawa. In the mid 1800's the property was converted to rich farm land. Today, the vast open spaces have been maintained, and the original footprint of the carriage house barn has been thoughtfully preserved.

Enter the property through private wooden gates on a street named for the family who owned the property at the turn of the century. Statuesque eucalyptus, palms and oak trees stand sentry around this very private property. Rolling lawns, shaded sitting areas, and wildflower studded woods paint a rich landscape; setting the tone for a very special experience. Walking trails and wooded paths lead to the beach, and to a legendary Montecito surf spot known as Hammond's Reef.

This completely remodeled residence is rich in warmth and rustic ambiance, while offering every modern convenience and upscale amenity possible. Throughout the home, cedar wood planks and beams from the original structure have been thoughtfully recycled. A combination of waxed white oak floors, French reclaimed terra cotta tile and unique doors and windows add to the impeccable craftsmanship feel of this exquisite property.

The kitchen is everything a gourmet chef expects with professional appliances that include a 6 burner Wolf range, wine cooler, coffee station, Sub-zero refrigerator and 3 dishwashers for effortless meals and entertaining. The custom banquette with expanding table tops creates two separate smaller eating areas or expands for larger groups and family style dining. The expansive views of the pool area and surrounding grounds outside become the perfect backdrop to this comfortable and welcoming space.

In a wing off the kitchen are two well appointed bedrooms; one with twin bunk beds, the other with a queen-size bed. These rooms share a full bathroom with a bathtub. Just outside this area is a warm outdoor shower for surfers and beach goers to use before entering the home. This also provides a separate entrance for this wing of the house.

In the living room, soaring beam ceilings of cedar rise above a massive 2 story sandstone fireplace. This fireplace was fashioned around the original blacksmith's furnace structure in the carriage house. French doors flank this inviting room; one leading to the pool and expansive backyard, another leading to a private garden with a soothing fountain.

The media room adjacent to the living room can be closed off with pocket doors. A 65” high definition TV is the focal point of the room. This is the quintessential gathering spot for movie nights, lazy sports-filled weekends, or for keeping busy kids entertained with the integrated Xbox-360 system.

The first-floor master bedroom is located off the family room. It boasts artisan handcrafted closet doors, built-in drawers, and bright colored appointments. The master bathroom is special with handmade Italian tile covering the dual headed shower and his/her vanity.

Up the stairs, in what was originally the water tower, is the second master suite with a pleasing view of the backyard and pool. You can expect many restful nights in the Queen size bed under the high open beam ceilings.

From here, ascend another set of stairs to enjoy views of the lush landscape from the top of the water tower. The soaring truss-and-beam ceilings are the crowning feature of this space which enjoys views of the Santa Ynez mountains, the extensive grounds, and the Southern coastline.

Separate from the main house, offering privacy and flexibility, are two additional cottages with kitchen amenities and full baths. Formerly the barn, a one-bedroom guest house rests in the shade of mature oak trees. French doors from both the living room and bedroom open to the backyard with pool views. The second cottage, a quaint bougainvillea covered studio, has a full kitchen and is easily accessible from the inner driveway courtyard. Either cottage is an excellent option for separate families, or domestic help. Each cottage and the pool house have laundry facilities.

Comfortable year-round outdoor living is the goal of this fabulous property. Extensive walking paths and multitudes of peaceful vignettes dot this picture perfect property. An outdoor BBQ & kitchen features a 5-zone grill with rotisserie, ice maker, refrigerator and dishwasher. The amenity-rich list continues with a bocce ball court, built-in ground level trampoline, outdoor heated shower, fire pit, fire table and bikes for rides to nearby Miramar and Butterfly beaches.

The deep blue pool with lap lane, built-in 10 person spa, and Baja shelf is the focal point of the grounds. A convenient pool-house has a full bath and dressing room, along with a washer and dryer for washing beach towels and swimwear. As the final outdoor touch, a 50” flat screen TV is mounted above the outdoor wood burning fireplace.

Sea Ranch is resort-style living of the finest caliber. With its rich history, relaxed style and luxury-rich amenities, this very special property will transform your well-deserved vacation into a one-of-a-kind experience.
