Birnam Wood


Birnam Wood, a distinguished neighborhood tucked away in the heart of town, reflects a testament to authentic Montecito living. Surrounded by lush landscapes, eclectic homes, an in-house country club, and a premier 18-hole golf course, this community offers a lifestyle of sophistication and ease.

At the center lies premier greens meticulously designed to challenge and inspire players. Whether you're a seasoned golfer or simply wanting leisure time at the club, the course and facilities beckon with lasting allure. Robert Trent Jones even described it as “The best short course I ever built.” Yet Birnam Wood is more than just a country club with exquisite grounds; to locals, it's a testament to Montecito's rich heritage and understated luxury. Birnam Wood remains true to the essence of the original Montecito, where connections run deep, and members are often multi-generational.

One of the many reasons for this strong retention remains Birnam being one of the only seven gated neighborhoods in Montecito, providing its residents the utmost privacy with 24-hour security stationed at the entrance. However, when residents venture beyond the gate, they find themselves in close proximity to the charming Upper Village: a vibrant hub with an array of upscale boutiques, restaurants, and cafes, making it the perfect destination for coffee catch-ups or indulgent shopping sprees.

Whether you're drawn to its amenities, location, or beauty, Birnam Wood stands as a reminder to the timeless allure of old school Montecito living. Experience the epitome of luxury, security, and convenience in this community —an enclave like no other.
