Enjoy ocean views from this well maintained and updated 3 bed, 2-bath Montecito cottage. The spacious and modern flow of the kitchen, living and dining room provides bright open spaces and plenty of views of the ocean while entertaining or cooking. This charming home enjoys great natural light that fills the home with warm colors reflecting off the newly refinished oak floors, and the maple and alder cabinetry.
This home has been meticulously maintained with extensive upgrading starting in 1999 including a professionally installed drainage system with surface and French drains, updated heating and A/C, updated electrical and plumbing (including sewer lateral line), and a tile roof.
Situated on nearly 4/10 of an acre, the home is set back, and high off the street, providing the setting and privacy of a country retreat. The backyard offers three areas for entertaining and plenty of room for expanding the house or adding a pool or other amenities. Enjoy al fresco dining and the natural beauty of the professionally landscaped front and backyards with Santa Barbara year around idyllic weather. French doors from dining area gives ease of access to back patio and a nearby gas hook allows for the home chef to easily move between kitchen prep and grilling in the backyard. In the front yard, a new 15-gallon privet hedge has recently been installed to give additional privacy without blocking the ocean views and new lawn, roses and flowering plants compliment the mature lemon, grapefruit and orange trees. Relax at the top of the property and soak in ocean and island views to the serene sound of the nearby fountain.
While the home is nestled into the private and secluded hills of Montecito, you are only a few minutes from all Montecito and Santa Barbara have to offer. Boutique shopping and upscale restaurants on Coast Village Road and the Upper Village are only a little over 1.5 miles away. Butterfly Beach, the local favorite, is only 2 miles away by car or 1.5 miles walking or biking. The heart of Santa Barbara’s downtown corridor (State Street) and the popular Funk zone are both only 3 miles away.
