Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We are an English family and moved here in 1993 as an experiment, and have been here ever since!

Why the Owner Chose Upper Village, Montecito, CA, USA:
We bought this property because we loved its situation and knew that after renovations it would be the house of our dreams. We extensively remodeled little by little and now its turned into more than we ever imagined.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What is unique about this property is that it is tucked away and is quiet, private and peaceful yet close by to everything ....shops, restaurants, beaches etc. Its wonderful to relax by the pool and see the mountains behind, or read in the hammock under the incredible oak tree., or dine by the fire on the patio ...
