Montecito cottage description

THE COTTAGE:
This classic 1940’s cottage offers peace and tranquility on a large lot full of luscious oak trees. Care was taken to maintain the traditional cottage feel, while upgrading all the important features. This beautiful cottage offers an elegant one bedroom king size room with high thread count sheets and a sleeper sofa for two. It’s filled with modern amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, two flat screen TVs, DVD, Wi-Fi, washer and dryer. You can dine al fresco on our garden patio. The Family Room and Kitchen share one large space, with plenty of light streaming in from many doors and windows. Two bicycles are provided for our guests.

THE SCOOP:
This is a NEW LISTING, so there is still plenty of availability - but there might not be for long! This is a non-smoking property. When you email or call you are speaking directly with the owners, not a management company. Suggestions for dining and activities are also included. Please email for additional detailed information.

              Car: Recommended

              It’s a few minute walk to historic Upper Montecito Village known for its charm and upscale boutiques, fine dining, Pierre Lafond Montecito Market, and the popular Montecito Coffee Shop. Upper Montecito Village is lush with colorful native plants, tall eucalyptus and oak trees, fabled estates, set against the breathtaking San Ynez mountains. From the cottage, it’s a nice walk to the romantic San Ysidro Ranch, where you will find the beginning of the San Ysidro Trail and an easy hike to a waterfall about two miles from the trailhead. In the Upper Village, there is plenty of grass everywhere for kids to run around and the cottage is two blocks from Manning Park home to a toddler playground and picnic areas. Miramar Beach is one mile at the foot of San Ysidro Road. Shopping and dining on Montecito's Coast Village Road and the beaches and attractions of Santa Barbara are accessible on the many bike paths. (Two bikes are available for our guests).

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Two families, best friends from Los Angeles area, jointly own this property. Once our respective children are grown and out of the house, we'll be spending a lot more time in Montecito. Our escapes to the Montecito coast though infrequent, are delightful. We enjoy hiking, walks through the beautiful neighborhoods and beaches, and a short stroll to excellent restaurants and specialty shops.

              Why the Owner Chose Montecito:
              We've been visiting the Santa Barbara area since we were kids, and have always dreamed of owning here. We enjoy the slower pace, beautiful trees, temperate coastal climate, and friendly people. We acquired this gem in a very special area of Montecito, and are excited about sharing this lifestyle with others. We recharge when in Montecito - whether enjoying outdoor activities or picking up a book to read on comfortable chair under a shady oak tree.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Great care has been taken to bring out the character of this cottage. It's full of light, fresh air, and tree filled exposure from every room.
