Experience the historic charm of this fully modernized, Spanish-style carriage house. The tastefully renovated, nearly 2,500 sq. ft. home offers serene outdoor space with an ocean view deck, convenient proximity to Montecito's Upper and Lower and Villages, and 21st-century technological integrations. Vintage details throughout the home are complemented by high-end upgrades inside and out, offering a charming glimpse into its unique history.
The front of the 3 bed/2 bath home is flanked by a stone privacy wall, a partially shaded lawn bordered by rosebushes, and a large stone driveway. The attached garage with original carriage house doors is currently used as a stunning and spacious multi-function room. Its vaulted open-beam ceilings, beautifully stained wooden doors and beams, and a recently added entertaining and storage cabinet may make this the most popular room in the house! Other common areas include a cozy living room with a sleek metal-and-reclaimed-wood fireplace, a dining room, and a spacious gourmet kitchen featuring vaulted ceilings and Viking appliances. Two bedrooms on the main level share a newly renovated bathroom with glass shower and antique vanity, and an office space is conveniently located off of the main entrance.
The upstairs master suite offers a serene retreat—complete with a separate office/reading loft, large walk-in closet, and views to the landscaped backyard and hillside. The impressive amount of usable space in the home is rounded out by a lower-level wine cellar/game room, accessed by an exterior staircase. The entire home is equipped with Ring, an app-based security and monitoring system.
Outside, serenity and privacy abound. A large, private patio wraps around the side and back of the home, offering ample outdoor space for barbecuing and entertaining. Beautiful drought-tolerant landscaping and trees—including avocado, tangelo orange, navel orange, key lime, Mexican lime, and lemon—are watered by an app-controlled watering system and accented by elegant uplighting. A few steps up the meandering gravel-and-wooden-step path are rewarded with an ocean view deck, which is hedged by ficus trees for peaceful privacy.
This quaint, beautifully upgraded property offers a unique piece of Montecito history, comfortable space and solitude, and nearly perfect proximity to all that Santa Barbara and Montecito have to offer.
