About the Property

Main House: 4 bedrooms/3 baths/2 halfbaths/sleeps8;Cottage:1 bedroom/1bath/slps2

Character abounds in renowned winemaker Bryan Babcock and his wife Lisa's enchanting 1920s Mediterranean home, situated perfectly for exploring the spectacular Santa Barbara Riviera (3 minutes from beach!) and nearby wine country. Located in Montecito on nearly an acre of landscaped grounds, the four bedroom house accommodates eight, the guest cottage another two. From the moment you drive up to the fragrant flower filled exterior and open the front door into the arched and tiled foyer, you may believe you have stepped back in time. Settle in front of the old world fireplace, central to the inviting, antique filled living room, open the French doors out to the expansive lawns and gardens, and stay awhile.

Ideal Rooms for Entertaining: The fabulous dining room comfortably seats up to ten guests and is conveniently situated next to the gourmet kitchen. Well equipped, the cheery kitchen, with fantastic garden view, features a 6-burner Wolf range with double oven, dishwasher, microwave, and stainless refrigerator, as well as accessories for meal preparation and service. Outstanding caterers are available for special events. Adjacent to the dining area, is the large, cozy family room with views of the majestic oaks, flower garden, and fountain. Curl up with a book or watch a movie in this gorgeous room with beamed ceiling and beautiful old world fireplace.


Charming, Restful Bedrooms: Upstairs, four charming and restful bedrooms await you. Three of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms. The master, with an en suite bathroom has a shower, garden view, television and romantic balcony. Another bedroom, also with balcony, has a bath adjacent and a view of the rose garden. The third bedroom, with en suite bathroom and shower, has a beautiful antique bed and a gorgeous view of the garden with the fountain below. Finally, the fourth upstairs room has a double bed, a small sunroom, perfect for reading, and a small half bath nearby.

Inviting Guest Cottage: Down a stone path, an inviting, two story guest cottage accommodates another two guests and is available for larger groups. The upstairs is bright, with high beamed ceilings and is thoughtfully appointed with a queen bed, charming decor, and two sets of French doors leading to a large balcony. There is a full bath upstairs as well, with a beautiful vintage tiled floor. The first level has a desk and a kitchenette with a small fridge, sink, coffeemaker, microwave and toaster, with seating and a cute table perfect for a morning scone and coffee. Parking is conveniently available near the home's front door, with room for a vehicle or two back by the guest cottage.

Guests (21 years of age or older) while staying at the residence receive complimentary wine tasting at Babcock Vineyards Tasting Room located in the acclaimed Santa Rita Hills wine appellation near Lompoc. You will also receive a 20% discount on any of your wine purchases. If you can’t make it up to the winery, but would like to have some Babcock wines during your stay, we are more than happy to deliver them to the House prior to your arrival. www.Babcockwinery.com

Santa Barbara is known as the “American Riviera”. Majestic mountains are the backdrop for one of the most beautiful “beach towns” in the country with a temperate climate year round making it a wonderful destination anytime. A congenial, small town atmosphere ensures a relaxing vacation along with a wide variety of things to do from sailing to live theater to wine tasting; and the restaurants are world class. Montecito is a small rustic community minutes away from down town Santa Barbara and the beach.
