Property description

The Upper Village of Montecito offers guests a relaxed pace in a beautiful setting at the base of the Santa Ynez Mountains. This beloved area of Montecito is home to everything from the grand gated estates of the rich and famous, to small quaint cottages in established neighborhoods.

In Spanish, casa feliz means "happy house." There is no question that this impeccable home promises just that, and more. This 4 bedroom ranch-style home, on a gated 1 acre parcel, offers guests a bright and friendly oasis with all the amenities a luxury vacation rental should have. With many windows and doors, sunshine streams in from every side of this mid-century home.

Step down into the Living Room from the welcoming entry foyer, where high beam ceilings soar overhead and an impressive wall of rugged river rock surrounds a dual sided fireplace. Large picture windows frame the breathtakingly beautiful foothills that frequently glow with pink and purple hues at sunset. The other side of the fireplace faces the Dining Room table, adding a warm glow to every meal.

Through sliding doors an attached Sunroom, with a wall of glass windows and doors, is the perfect place to oversee pool activity while staying inside where central air conditioning keeps things cool on warm summer days.

The Master Bedroom has mountain views and offers a fireplace and king-size bed. The Master Bathroom features dual sinks and a luxurious over-sized glass shower. A French door leads to the back yard, making it effortless to sneak away for an after hours moonlight swim under the stars.

Two guest Bedrooms are each appointed with queen-size beds. On the south side one Guestroom faces the pool terrace with its own door to access the hall Bathroom. The other Bedroom facing north has views of the front yard and foothills in the distance. Off the entry is the Den with a sofa sleeper that can be closed off as the 4th Bedroom. Just outside, a fountain adds a tranquil and serene touch. The home offers 2 Powder Rooms and a full Laundry Room as well.

The pool terrace will definitely be the central hub for most vacation activity. With flat green lawns surrounding the property, guests can enjoy a game of croquet or family friendly game of tag in the front or back yards.

An organic orchard will be abundant during certain times of the year with seasonal favorites like pears, apples, peaches, grapes, avocados and citrus fruits. Bring the bounty indoors to the well equipped Kitchen with granite counters and plan on fresh squeezed orange juice everyday to go with a tall stack of morning pancakes!

Just outside the Kitchen and by the pool is an outdoor Kitchen and bar area that features 2 Santa Maria-style barbecues, just perfect to prepare a hearty mixed grill feast. Dining outside is a romantic poolside experience, with a large arbor perched on massive pillars and suspended over the long teak dining table. Smart landscape lighting sets a peaceful mood after dark throughout the property.

Within walking distance to this lovely home is the Upper Village of Montecito where offerings include Pierre Lafond Gourmet Grocery and Wine Bistro, Wendy Foster Clothing, and a variety of notable restaurants and numerous galleries and fine antique stores. Take the morning off and join locals at Montecito's Pharmacy Coffee Shop for classic breakfast on the porch paired with friendly conversation.

Whatever the reason for travelling to Santa Barbara, your stay here will be memorable. "Bienvenido a esta casa feliz" - Welcome to this happy home!
