Enjoying one of the most spectacular and breathtaking views ..... This gated private oasis overlooks the ocean, the beaches, and the Channel Islands. Situated in the foothills of Montecito, this home lies between the upper and lower village. A stunning, spacious, comfortable house built on one level, designed for indoor/ outdoor living with a pool and hot tub. Just a few minutes away from the restaurants, and shops of Montecito and yet close enough to hop on the freeway and enjoy down town Santa Barbara.

Beautifully decorated and consistently described by guests as wonderfully comfortable and manageable, this home is the perfect spot to create life long memories

An antique gateway opens to reveal a beautiful home surrounded by an expansive terrace and entertainment area, the focal point of this house. Well furnished with chaise lounges, comfortable sofas and an olive-shaded eating area, the long terrace overlooks the lush terraced gardens and pool area. It is the perfect place to spend time enjoying the expansive views, sipping sundowners or having brunch with friends and family in Santa Barbara’s temperate climate.

Inside, original paintings by European artists, antique Moroccan and Mexican doors and terra-cotta terazza floors abound.

It contains a seating area and a large flat screen television with Blue-Ray player and hundreds of DVD's for all ages The dining area within the great room seats 10 guests comfortably.

All of the bedrooms have pillow-top mattresses, high end european comforters and beautiful linen. Our guests constantly comment on the quality of the beds and the fabulous nights sleep they get.

2 guest rooms on the far end of the house are situated just beyond the master suite, both have private entrances to the back patio area. This additional master has a king bed and the other guest room is equipped with a queen four poster bed and walk in closet. Both rooms can be closed off from the rest of the house, creating a two-bedroom suite or private second master. These guest rooms share a roomy bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate glass-enclosed shower.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: My wife and I wanted to find a place with a perfect year round climate offering the best of the US and Europe. We love the ocean, outdoor pursuits, culture, great restaurants, proximity to everything and easy parking! Our children who are now College age have enjoyed an idyllic childhood in this beautiful home.

Why the Owner Chose Eucalyptus Hill, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
Location is everything, this home is nestled between the upper and lower village of montecito. Close to all of the amenities, shops, restaurants, and beaches, The Four Seasons Biltmore, butterfly beach, the bird Sanctuary, Montecito Country club. Valley and Birnam Wood Country clubs. With down town Santa Barbara just ten minutes drive away. This is our home for some of the year as well as a vacation rental. So it is in a different league from most vacation rentals. Exceedingly comfortable, beautifully furnished with high quality finishes, european bedding, a gourmet kitchen and much much more. This home is all about the beautiful view. Why be on the ocean if you can’t see the ocean? Bug free, with a beautiful ocean breeze year round, the nights are cool enough to sleep with out air conditioning. Days that are warm enough to enjoy..... Its a perfect location for a vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Overlooking the bird sanctuary and the Montecito country club on a private road. This property is completely private, and well planted. With an in and out drive. You enter through a beautiful antique spanish door into your own special secluded gardens that surround the house. With a pool, and extensive comfortable outdoor areas that allow you enjoy the beautiful sunset over the ocean.
