It’s always delightful to walk or drive around Montecito, and especially fun for me as a Realtor to see the homes that are on the market. Montecito is located to the east of Santa Barbara, just down the coast, and it includes beach neighborhoods, two boutique commercial districts (Upper Village and Lower Village), quiet cottages, expansive estates, hiking trails and surf spots. Although known for expensive real estate and celebrity residents, Montecito has a more everyday side to it as well, with long-time residents and families enjoying life in this beautiful part of the world.
When I think of Montecito, I think of the winding roads and stately oaks, beautiful beaches, historic homes and artistic gates, and a few favorite cafes. The link below contains a sampling of Montecito real estate, which ranges currently from condominiums around $800,000 to historic estates over $30 million. For people looking for privacy and a village-centered lifestyle, it’s a fantastic place to live. Give me a call if you would like more details about Montecito living.
