Montecito Sycamore Canyon Hideaway:
The Hideaway is a 4 minute drive to State Street and downtown Santa Barbara. It is a 2 minute drive to Coast Village Rd. with all the boutique shops and restaurants, beautiful Butterfly Beach, the 4 Seasons Biltmore and the upper and lower villages in Montecito.
Wind your way along the beautiful mature tree lined Sycamore Canyon Road amidst the mansions and the estates where the rich and famous live! Oprah lives right around the corner! You will approach the Sycamore Canyon Hideaway on the left across the street from the famed beautiful Ganna Walska's Lotusland. Drive through the gated entry up the long driveway to the Hideaway. Park your car at the top of the paved driveway. You will enter through the front door which is across the foot bridge over the Koi pond with seal fountain.
The Montecito Sycamore Canyon Hideaway consists of the Main House and the Guest House. They are separate and private. I live in the Guest House. The pool and main patio are for the private use of the Hideaway. I do not use the patio and the pool. Shared areas are the parking area and the driveway.
This 2 bedroom 2 bath Hideaway is classic in style. From the driveway walk across the bridge and over the beautiful pond with charming seal fountain to the front porch and then to the front double doors of the Sycamore Canyon Hideaway. Tropical landscaping surrounds the property, and adds to the romantic charm.
As you walk through the front door of the Hideaway you will enter into the foyer and then into the amazing living room with beautiful fireplace surrounded by a granite hearth, seating for up to 5 guests under the row of French doors that open out to the large swimming pool with cascading waterfalls! In the beautiful living room there is a comfortable sectional which can seat 5. Across from the living room is the office with 2 comfortable wingback chairs, a desk and chair with wireless internet! The living room has a 50' flat screen, high def Panasonic Viera TV with expanded cable viewing and DVD. Go past the beautiful living room to the gorgeous dining room with seating for 10!
The dining room is gorgeous with a beautiful dining table and 10 chairs. It has a wood burning fireplace with wood to burn! It has a beautiful hardwood floor with amazing tapestry rug underneath the table and chairs! Dim the lights and enjoy a gourmet meal cooked in the kitchen adjacent to the dining room!
Turn left and enter into the magical kitchen with granite counter tops! The kitchen is well equipped with a stainless 5-burner Thermador built in stove top. Additional amenities include a Kitchenaid stainless oversized side by side refrigerator with ice and water dispenser, Bosch Quiet dishwasher, Thermador stainless built in wall oven, microwave and warming drawer, toaster and coffee maker with coffee and all the fixins'.
From the front door entry turn right and you will find the 2 bedrooms: The Office Suite faces the driveway and beautiful, lush front yard. The bedroom next door to the Office Suite is the Poolside Suite with French doors that lead out to the backyard oasis. Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom.
Enter the living room and open the French doors that lead out to the backyard oasis with wrought iron patio furniture and seating for 5. There are also 4 lounge chairs for sunbathing where guests can enjoy the large pool with cascading waterfalls!
This is a couples and family friendly property.
Please: No Smoking, No Pets, No parties or weddings.
Minimum stay - 3 nights, 5 night minimum for fiesta weekend, 4 night minimum for 4th of July, 1 week minimum stay for Thanksgiving, Christmas and UCSB graduation.
The backyard oasis is a relaxing environment with wrought iron tables and chairs. An especially nice experience is to dine 'al fresco poolside' on this gorgeous patio with a view of the beautiful hill and lush landscaping of the gorgeous 1 acre.
There is parking for 3 cars on the property.
The guest house is completely private and separate. I live in the guest house.
With an ideal Montecito location, this Hideaway is just 2 minutes drive to Butterfly Beach, Coast Village Road, the Lower Village and the Upper Village. 4 minutes drive to East Beach and State Street in Santa Barbara. Take a ten minute walk to the beautiful Westmont College campus, and be sure to schedule a visit (seasonal) to the lush grounds of Lotusland, located right across the street!

Year Purchased: 2005
About: I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and I practiced in my solo office for 16 years. As I worked as a chiropractor I began purchasing houses and apartments. Many of them were fixers. I had fun refurbishing them! A few years ago I sold my Chiropractic business and now I manage my apartments and vacation rentals full time! I grew up in Fresno, CA and then moved to Santa Barbara to attend college. I then moved to Los Angeles area to attend Chiropractic College. After graduating I returned to Santa Barbara! I couldn't stay away!! I now live in Montecito in the Guest House of the Sycamore Canyon Estate!!
Why Montecito, CA, USA:
When I was looking for my next property to buy, I knew I wanted to find one in Montecito. This is because the properties in Montecito can be large with an acre or more and because it is gorgeous, peaceful, safe and desirable! I wanted an Estate with a guest house, 1 acre, pool, many bedrooms and bathrooms and on a large beautiful street with a long driveway. I found all that in The Sycamore Canyon Estate!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefits of the Sycamore Canyon Hideaway are that it is located in the heart of Montecito on a large beautiful Hideaway amidst the movie stars and the rich! Oprah lives right around the corner! It is also right across the street from Ganna Walska's Lotusland. Look online to learn about this famous property that is seasonally open to the public!
