About the property


Nestled in the Santa Barbara hills away from the coastal fog. Enjoy commanding treetop and mountain views just 5 minutes from both downtown Santa Barbara and the upper and lower villages of Montecito.

Located in the coveted Cielito neighborhood of Santa Barbara and Montecito, this canyon home affectionately called, 'Westmont Abbey', offers both a charming neighborhood setting and seclusion. Bordering the lush Westmont College grounds, this half-acre property is dotted with beautiful succulents, tall trees and a seasonal creek. With over 3,320 square feet of living space this home provides a true Santa Barbara experience.

Hiking trails can be accessed from the creek pathway on the property. Serene owls, chirping frogs and coyotes are a few of the wonderful sounds of nature that fill the evening. Enjoy treetop and mountain views from almost every room. All of this and just minutes by car to world-famous downtown Santa Barbara, the Funk Zone and Montecito. Just 25 minutes from the gorgeous Santa Ynez wine valley.

This two story home offers three bedrooms, a full office, media room and three and one half bathrooms. The office can be used as an additional bedroom to accommodate another two persons.

The Great Room features a living area with cozy fireplace, powder room and stunning dining room. The gourmet kitchen off the Great Room has breathtaking views of the sunbathed foothills.

The Great Room opens to the outdoors with a full wall of accordion glass doors. The outer patio features an outdoor fireplace, seating area and chase lounges. Perfect for entertaining or a quiet evening enjoying the views.

The main Guest Room on the ground floor has its own entrance and offers a pillow-top California king size bed and en suite bathroom. The secondary Guest Room on the ground floor features a pillow-top queen size bed, en suite bathroom, mid-century work desk with 24' Apple LED display and sliding glass door.

The entire upper level of the house is the master bedroom suite. This bedroom retreat features a huge California king size pillow-top bed, walk in closet, massive en suite bathroom with spa shower, soaker tub and mountain view patio.

The cozy media room offers a 60' television and beautiful surround sound.

The home has state-of-the-art speakers throughout and wireless connectivity with Sonos. Control the music in every room with your smartphone! Play the same music throughout the home, or something different in every room!

About William Simpson

As world travelers, we love new experiences and new people. Santa Barbara is our little slice of paradise and we look forward to sharing our fantastic home and beloved city with you.

William Simpson purchased this house in 2011

Why William Simpson chose Cielito

It's the best of all worlds. Seclusion yet neighborhood, close to town yet far enough away. All this in a brand new, fabulously furnished executive hideaway.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, away from coastal fog, near hiking/biking trails and roads. Equidistant from downtown Santa Barbara and Montecito's lower and upper villages.
