Property description

Situated on a hill with spectacular 180-degree views of both the mountains and ocean, our Arcady Escape is located in Montecito, the popular Santa Barbara enclave chosen by many celebrities as their home away from home. Though you will find it behind the private gates of "Arcady", which was once part of the lovely historical estate of George Owen Knapp, our property is just 5 minutes away from gorgeous Butterfly Beach in front of the Biltmore Four Seasons, as well as Lower Village, Upper Village, and a multitude of popular trailheads into the surrounding foothills.

Our house is divided into two floors. Upstairs you will find 3 ample bedrooms: a master king suite with a balcony, spacious rain shower, and separate oversized tub with a view of the mountains; a queen-size bedroom with peaceful treetop and ocean views; and a second queen-size bedroom with cozy window seat overlooking the beautiful garden. Downstairs, enjoy the quiet of our study (with fireplace) that exits out onto a floral patio and stone terrace. In addition to the master bathroom, there are two other full baths throughout the property and a well-appointed kitchen with limestone counter tops, Spanish tile floors, and Viking/ Kitchen Aide/ Bosch appliances.

There are numerous French doors that open out onto our expansive deck and terraces, ideal for entertaining, BBQs, or enjoying our breathtaking views - perfect for watching the sunrise. If it's chilly, gather by outdoor chimney or cuddle on the sofa in front of the living room fireplace with a good book.

Our charming and comfortable Spanish home is ideal for groups of friends or small families looking for a quiet getaway to relax and enjoy time together.

Bedroom 1: The Master Suite with king size bed offers French doors to a balcony with lovely ocean & mountain views. There is a seating area for enjoying morning coffee and news papers or morning news on 47′ flat screen and a large gentleman's built in closet.
Bedroom 2:This Queen-size room has peaceful ocean and treetop views, a large closet, and window seat.
Bedroom 3: This Queen-sized bedroom overlooks the beautiful patio and garden on one side, the ocean off the French doors. A cozy window seat heaped with pillows and with huge mountain views is a favorite reading spot. Ample closet, 47′ flat screen and queen futon in addition to the queen bed make this a good place to get away.
Bedroom 4/ Library/ Den accommodates futon has adjacent full bath.

The Master bath offers oversized tub, walk in shower, double sinks in white marble, large walk in lady's closet. Bathroom #2: it opens from Bedroom #2 and has a walk in shower.

Signature Vacation Rentals

About: We are a couple, celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary this year and are about to retire. Because we love to travel we've decided it would be a good idea to share our much-loved home while we're away.

Why Eucalyptus Hill, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
We enjoy living in Arcady because of the gigantic views and the historical significance of the Knapp Estate. The original buildings on the estate are still here along with 20 smaller villas including our own. The neighborhood has formed an association to maintain the beauty of Arcady, creating a warm friendly atmosphere and sense of safety inside our gates.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is 3200 square feet....just the right size for entertaining and still maintain the feel of comfortable coziness. When we added the decks in 2005, it was the crowning touch and made our family certain that we will always be at home in Arcady.
