                  Located in beautiful Montecito you are moments away from tourist attractions, beaches or mountain hikes. Within one mile of the cottage you can find a variety of fine restaurants and high end shopping. Nearby Santa Barbara has more exciting visitor destinations, shopping areas, leisurely walking or hiking trails and restaurants. Our wharf and waterfront provide a lovely panoramic view of the city. You also have easy access to the Santa Ynez wineries. We are ninety miles from Los Angeles, 145 miles from Hearst Castle and 300 miles from the Bay Area.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My husband Gary and I have two children and built this cottage four years ago so I could pursue my love of sculpture. I use one room in the cottage for my work leaving the remaining 650 square feet to share with guests. Our family and friends have enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of the cottage and now we are offering it to the public on a limited basis. I do not work in my studio when we have guests ensuring that you will have complete privacy during your stay with us. The cottage is a stand alone building on our beautiful one acre property.

                  Why the Owner Chose Montecito:
                  Montecito has many areas of quiet tranquility and beauty. Gary and I chose this property to raise our family which now includes two teenagers and our dog, Bella. We welcome you to enjoy the gardens, lawns, fruit trees and recreational facilities.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The Cottage has several very endearing amenities including a beautiful sink that we purchased in Puerta Vallerta, handpainted tile in the kitchen, bathroom and fireplace, hardwood flooring, special lighting fixtures, as well as views of the mountains, backyard gardens, lawn and fruit trees.
