Never before in the MLS and owned by the same family for over 45 years, gain access to one of Montecito’s most private country hideaways. Prepare to be transported back to the simplicity of vintage Montecito living as nearly six and a half acres of lush pastoral property sit surrounded by panoramic ocean, mountain, and hillside views. Tucked at the top of a long private tree-lined drive and nestled among local ranches, privacy, and peacefulness here remain unparalleled. Scenic skylines, mountain vistas, and the melodic hum of nature create an enchanting dreamlike setting, while framed ocean views keep picturesque California charm ever-present. Discover what it’s like to live in tandem with nature as you explore the vast property to find a meandering creek, a hidden island, and a hillside olive grove. One of three structures on the property, the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom single-level rancher balances classic country living with breathtaking ocean and canyon views. The light-filled living room faces south and is anchored by a cozy fireplace, high ceilings, and built-in bookcases, while the primary bedroom suite enjoys the same special views. Vaulted ceilings, original wood floors, and rich wood paneling enrich the interiors, as the spacious kitchen and formal dining room encourage convenient gatherings. The attached 2-car garage keeps storage out of sight for seamless organization. Complete with its own driveway, a quaint one bedroom, one bathroom guest cottage with kitchen and living room sits alongside Toro Canyon Creek. Guests will feel in a world all their own as they relax with the soothing and meditative sounds of nature. With its own separate driveway, prepare to feel inspired in the metal-clad barn. Designed as both a workshop and garage, the two-story space could house a cherished car collection or become a future party barn, this European-inspired structure is calling for your creativity. Perched at the top of the property, is a potential future estate building site with views that span the horizon. With ample acreage for horses, an orchard, rambling gardens, and additional structures, nostalgia for a simpler era can now be transformed into a reality.
