Full of mystique and grandeur, history and beauty, Montecito, approximately eight square miles of hidden neighborhoods and expansive estates, has been the destination of choice for celebrities and millionaires for over one hundred years.
Located a couple miles east of Santa Barbara, “Montecito”, which is Spanish for “little mountain”, first received attention from wealthy Easterners and Midwesterners, in the late 1800’s. These early settlers developed large and lavish estates.
Today, Montecito offers varied options for residential living, such as an easy-care condominium just steps from the beach, a hidden cottage set on a tree-shaded lane, as well as large estates on many acres, both old and new.
The pace of life here is unhurried, and it is easy to see why Montecito has become a desirable second home location for big city dwellers. Whether you’re a famous movie star or a curious traveler, you’ll find Montecito to be truly a lush paradise.
