Montecito is where California casual, urban style and European sensibility meet to create a coveted lifestyle of relaxed sophistication. From its breathtaking stretch of the Pacific Ocean and pristine beaches lined with multi-million dollar homes, to its very private estates nestled in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains, this approximately nine square mile enclave adjacent to Santa Barbara is home to approximately 10,000 year-round and part-time residents. Visitors from all over the world come to enjoy Montecito’s world-renown Four Seasons Biltmore Resort and Spa and San Ysidro Ranch.
Since the early 1900’s, celebrities, business moguls and even international royalty have made Montecito properties their primary or vacation residences; thereby creating a legacy of spectacular world-class, historically and architecturally significant estates. Many of those homes have been impeccably preserved and exude the romance of Old World elegance and craftsmanship. They feature park-like grounds, award-winning gardens and sweeping ocean and mountain views.
Montecito hosts a pair of charming, intimate commercial hubs. Referred to by locals as the “Upper Village” and “Lower Village,” each one offers distinctive shopping and dining. The community’s two public and five private schools, as well as its private Westmont College are ranked among the finest learning institutions in California. In addition to its impressive beaches, Montecito offers a beautiful public park, three private golf courses and a private tennis club.
