Montecito ~ $3,450,000
Like something out of a storybook, this charming single-level 3 bed/2 bath Montecito cottage is perfectly situated on .4 acre of beautifully landscaped gardens and close to all Montecito and Santa Barbara has to offer. This midcentury beauty enjoys garden views from every room and a simple floor plan that flows effortlessly from one room to the next. Overlooking the back gardens, this home's high-quality and character are felt in the kitchen where top-of-the-line appliances (Subzero fridge, Viking range/dishwasher, etc.) meet the storybook charm of a Swedish fireplace, Dutch doors, farm sink, butcher-block countertops, custom cabinetry with brass finishes, and a brick floor and backsplash. A quaint and private master suite includes dual walk-in closets, front patio access and an ensuite bath with marble counters and a free-standing soaking tub. With an abundance of natural light and vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, the expansive living room is centrally located and acts as a natural gathering place. Enjoy all the benefits of a family garden in the backyard that features raised vegetable beds and many fruit and citrus trees. A fenced perimeter with high hedges and mature landscaping provides the ultimate level of privacy. This rare Montecito cottage is located in an ultra-premium location in the coveted Alston corridor.
