Style and charm abound in this Old World, 3-bedroom, 2- bathroom Spanish-style home, located on a private lane in the heart and soul of upscale Montecito. The house offers dining room mountain views, a courtyard with sculpted water fountain, and a charming living room with fireplace. The master suite is adjacent to a tiled outdoor Jacuzzi, and the master bathroom features a spa tub and secluded garden view.

The fully equipped kitchen has recently been remodeled with tile countertops. Hardwood floors throughout the house are accented with 12 authentic, hand-made oriental rugs. The large outside entertaining patio with Argentinian-style adobe fireplace and grill is perfect for al fresco gatherings. A round teak dining table seats six on cushioned chairs. Enjoy mountain and treetop views while you dine, accompanied by a chorus of birds.

One-of-a-kind art pieces collected from around the world enhance the ambience of the estancia. This beautiful gated property was built in 1927 and features stunning, elegant iron-worked front security gates made by renowned international artist Flavio Bisciotti. They blend harmoniously into the 10-foot high hedgerows surrounding the property, offering welcome seclusion for guests.

The landscape was originally designed in 1978 by top Santa Barbara landscape architect Sydney Baumgartner. It has been completely renovated according to the original plans, allowing you to enjoy the enthralling beauty of the stunning Old World garden design, surrounded by fruit trees and flowers all year round. The back of this fine property is connected through a private door to the most beautiful, picture-perfect small park in Montecito. Guests have direct access to an idyllic and secluded wonder, full of creeks, old-growth trees, and a tennis court and playground. Immerse yourself in the grand past of Montecito as you stroll the lushly planted pathways.

This unique Spanish home is in a premier location, just one block from prestigious Upper Village, restaurants, coffee shops, high end boutiques, gift shops, bookstores and more are less than a five-minute walk from the Estancia, up a gorgeous, quiet, tree-filled private lane. This area is considered a bird sanctuary, just two and a half miles from the Andree Clark Bird Refuge featuring two hundred species of birds.

Even better than the pictures!!! Enter the gate and you enter into a secret garden and a beautifully maintained Spanish style home. We went with our three kids who enjoyed the spa and basketball court. We entertained guests for dinner on the beautiful patio and enjoyed the living room at end of day...do yourself a favor and stop researching the other Montecito spots...you found it! its this one!
