Property description

During Summer months - weekly stay is recommended.


This amazing home was built with the 360 degree view in mind. Walk out on the veranda in the morning, with a hot coffee and paper, and you will catch the early morning animals beginning to stir. Hummingbirds, deer, eagles, coyotes, etc. are just some of the wildlife all around. Relax in a soothing spa and enjoy peacefulness and tranquility with mountains and nature surrounding you.

With 1.6 very private acres, beautiful landscaping, and huge grass areas perfect for croquet or badmitton, it's hard to imagine downtown Santa Barbara only 2 miles away. At night, enjoy a fire in one of the two outdoor fire places either next to the jacuzzi or outdoor dining area and kitchen. Or toast up some 'smores around the huge firepit and stargaze at the black sky unobstructed by city lights. Let yourself go and feel a lifetime away.

Go inside and open some of the 10 french doors and unite the indoors and out. Every room in this incredible property has amazing views. The home is tastefully decorated in similar motifs as the Biltmore hotel. Huge vaulted celings throughout, profesional grade appliances, slate kitchen counter tops, tumbled marble bathrooms, fireplaces in master suite and great room, high quality linens as well as high speed wireless internet make this home first class. The newly added game room includes ping pong, air hockey, piano, etc. Children can enjoy the trampoline and swing set, scooters, games and toys. Our pet Turkey and his five best friend chickens are friendly and fun. Enjoy fresh eggs every morning for breakfast. No care is needed for them. Our gardner cares for them weekly. There truly is something for everyone!

This is a once in a lifetime place, with access to everything you need for a memorable visit. Hiking and world-class cycling trails are within a mile of the property. Watch paragliders and hang-gliders land in the adjacent meadow. Enjoy a horseback or mountain bike ride in the 200 acre park across the street. Walk only steps to tennis courts. For a small fee, use of our private tennis club with pool, jacuzzi, work out classes and machines can be arranged. The Santa Barbara Tennis Club is only one mile away.

Pristine beaches and downtown shopping only 2 miles away. Nestled between Montecito and Santa Barbara, it is the perfect location to experience the shopping, restaraunts, beaches, wildlife, sporting activities, and tranquility the entire area has to offer. Experiance the FULL Santa Barbara lifestyle in this amazing home.

This house is perfect for entertaining and relaxing with the feeling of seclusion yet close to everything.

We do not allow weddings or parties of any sort. Only a maximum of 8 guests on the property at any time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We are the Morison Family. We have 3 children ages 13,10,and 15. We built our home with the love of Santa Barbara Spanish style and the love of the out doors. We love hiking, biking, traveling, and all kinds of sports. Snow skiing and snow boarding fill many Winter days. Summer days, we spend a lot of time at our Lake house on Lake Nacimiento, wake boarding and water skiing!

Why the Owner Chose Upper Riviera, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
We love the location of our home. It feels as if it is in a serene Oasis far from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet it is close (2 miles) to downtown with restaurants, shopping, and beaches. We love to hike. Many hiking trails are a stones throw away! World class biking, running, and walking outside the front door.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is Santa Barbara's raw natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Viewing all kinds of wildlife is amazing. We are visited regularly by deer, bunnies, and distant howls of coyotes. Bird watching over the canyon is spectacular. Hawks, Eagles, Owls, and even para gliders are a common experience.
