Full of mystique and grandeur, history and beauty, Montecito is approximately eight square miles of hidden neighborhoods, and expansive estates, and has been the destination of choice for celebrities and millionaires for over 100 years. Located a couple of miles east of Santa Barbara, Montecito which is Spanish for “Little Mountain”, first received interest from wealthy Easteners and Midwesterners in the late 1800’s. These settlers developed large and lavish estates. Today Montecito offers many and varied options for residential living, such as easy care condominiums just steps from the beach, a hidden cottage down a tree shaded lane, as well as large estates on many acres, both old and new. The pace of life here is unhurried, and it is easy to see why Montecito has become a desirable location for big city dwellers. Whether you’re a movie star or just a curious person, you will find Montecito to be a truly lush paradise!
