Montecito

Full of beauty, history and grandeur, 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. Montecito offers an unhurried pace of life, breathtaking scenery and two very quaint shopping and dining “villages” that make some locals feel that even the trip a few miles east to Santa Barbara is a small journey.

Montecito is certainly a desirable second and third home location for big city dwellers, but mostly the town is filled with locals who live in Montecito year round and feel truly fortunate.  Two of the finest public schools in the country serve Montecito, and there are three golf courses (two are private), 2 private tennis clubs, a YMCA, luxury spas and several spectacular beaches within the immediate area.  Several private schools are also within the town of Montecito as well as Westmont College, a smaller liberal arts college.  Montecito gently slopes up away from the ocean with gorgeous tree lined streets, great for walking and riding bikes.  Many homes have ocean views and/or mountain views, with most homes hidden behind mature foliage, hedges and trees.

Montecito Real Estate values average around $1.75 to $5 million.  Spectacular view homes, estates and ocean front property start at around $3-4 million and can exceed this amount fivefold or tenfold.

If you are interested in real estate here in Montecito, Santa Barbara, and our surrounding areas, as well as any other aspects of life here, please don’t hesitate to contact Kevin Schmidtchen at Sotheby’s Int’l Realty.
