Nestled in the foothills of Montecito close to town, this beautiful estate offers stunning mountain views from an elegant home with designer touches. With a great floor plan, this property offers plenty of room for everyone.

The large Master bedroom enjoys views of the oaks and distant mountains from the California King sized bed. Relax in the overstuffed chaise lounge and read a book or watch TV in comfort or enjoy a cocktail on the private balcony.

The Master Bath features a new Bain Ultra hydro-therapy and chroma-therapy tub. Relax in the oversized tub while watching television on the bathroom flatscreen. Rinse off under the rain showerhead and body sprays in the glass enclosed shower. Enjoy the warmth of the heated tile floor on your vacationing feet.

The sunken family room is perfect for playing board games away from the central living area where you won't disturb others in the house. Or kick back and watch the 46” Samsung HDTV above the fireplace or cozy up in the beautiful window seat!

The views from all the rooms are amazing.

Every room looks out on the peaceful lush greenery and grand oaks centuries old.

Relax in the yard while the kids play on the incredible tree swing or shoot hoops. An outdoor grill and dining table under a pergolas make for a perfect meal amongst the oak trees.

Wander down to the backyard to watch the kids slide down the zip line over the seasonal creek and pull it back across the log bridge. This large home is ideal for friends and families looking for a vacation space that comes with all the amenities required to relax and enjoy time together. We leave boogie boards and 2 Doyle surf boards for your enjoyment at the beach as well.

About Cindy Hann

The owners have lived in Santa Barbara and Montecito since graduating from UCSB in 1989. They most recently acquired and remodeled this stunning view property transforming it into a beautiful home for their family. They enjoy entertaining, traveling and enjoying all Santa Barbara has to offer with their 3 boys

Cindy Hann purchased this house in 2008

Why Cindy Hann chose Santa Barbara Area

Montecito is a lush garden community just south of Santa Barbara and about an hour north of Los Angeles. This property enjoys spectacular views of the Santa Barbara Mountains and Montecito Valley. A quiet gated neighborhood allows for peaceful morning strolls below the canopy of oaks. Just a few houses away from the famous Lotus Land, this property is ideally situated for both privacy as well as quick access (a 5-10 minute drive) to both Montecito and Santa Barbara beaches, restaurants and shopping

What makes this house unique

Like many Montecito properties, the neighboring properties are barely visible in the distance through the trees. The views from every window with the lush green landscapes reminds us why we love living in Montecito. Far away feel, yet close to everything!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay August 17, 2012

Helpful votes:0/0.

This home is beautiful in every way. The description of the home is accurate, the owners are more than hospitible and the views are stunning! It was immaculate, so clean and wonderful. The decor was wonderful and tasteful, homey and inviting. Cindy, the owner, was also extremely helpful when it came to recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area, and made herself available to us during the entire stay. The activites on the property itself kept us more than occupied, for hours upon hours. Zip lining was a major hit, even for a house full of women. Accomodations were very comfortable and spacious. Oh!! And our favorite part was the Sonos sound system. It was nothing short of amazing, I'm looking in to installing one in my house. I have and will recommend this property to friends and family, and hope to visit again soon. Thank you!!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully furnished and comfortable home with lovely mountain views. Private on large property. We have enjoyed 2 stays here. It works well for 3 generation visits. Close to yummy restaurants. We've been visiting relatives for over 40 years in Santa Barbara. It is truly America's Riviera.

Westmont Graduation Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This home and location was picture perfect in every way!

Originally, we didn't think we would need four nights for our graduation celebration and were contemplating a different scenario. We are SO GLAD we went ahead and booked this home! All of our guests enjoyed the lovely home, neighborhood, and the view was engaging and peaceful! We went wine tasting with our "extra day" and these memories will last a lifetime! The home was equipped with all we needed and staged beautifully! Games galore and comfortable sofas and tables to gather around. It was walking distance to Westmont College. It was perfect for celebrating our daughter's graduation!

A Christmas gathering

  • 4 of 5

After a lengthly family discussions, we decided on this beautiful home. We are three generations and our families consisted of young children,surfers, mountain bikers, quiet journal writers and sightseers. This home is a very good location for all of these things. Our grandchildren loved the tree swing best of all and played on it all day long.The yard is perfect for children playing and also for taking walks in the quiet and lovely neighborhood. When we arrived there was a lovely Christmas tree lighted and also outdoor and indoor Christmas lights. What a thoughtful gesture for our entire family! There were many great suggestions for things to do and sights to see in the area. The owners were friendly, helpful and prompt with our inquiries. It was a memorable time together.

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My Aunt was visiting from out of town and our family decided to enjoy some time in Santa Barbara to do some wine tasting and sight-seeing. The pictures in the listing looked great so we decided to book this home. What can I say that hasn't been said in the previous 5 star reviews? The home was amazing, and the already beautiful pictures didn't do this place justice. Everything about the home, from the furniture to the outdoor landscaping was picturesque. We all felt right at home as the property was very inviting and cozy. The homeowner deserves as 5 star rating also, as she made sure all of our concerns were taken care of. She was friendly, easily accessible, and anticipated all of our needs. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience in Montecito/Santa Barbara. We will definitely return in the future.

Perfect Family and Group Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This home and location are amazing! The place is wonderful, large, clean, well decorated, with super views and outdoor areas to enjoy. It is located down a long private drive in Montecito that has beautiful shade trees canopying over the road. The area is great for walks, and the rope swing was a favorite for our granddaughter! You are also close to everything--Westmont, Jeanines, Butterfly beach, the Biltmore, groceries (Vonns), mountain roads and many other favorite attractions.

We enjoyed the place immensely, and the owners were helpful and friendly.

Our daughter's wedding in Santa Barbara was made all the better by our family stay at this gorgeous home!

You cannot go wrong with this super property!

Excellent Family Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and welcoming family home. We gathered in the area for a family wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was very nice, the location was terrific, and the homeowner/property manager was a pleasure to work with. I will return another time.
