Montecito

The understated luxury and natural beauty in this exclusive community, just southeast of Santa Barbara.

Welcome to Montecito

Montecito sits along a very coveted and storied part of the Santa Barbara Coast. The understated luxury and natural beauty in this exclusive community, just southeast of Santa Barbara, is renowned for its stunning landscapes, expansive estates, and top-notch shopping and dining.

For a relatively small community in the greater Santa Barbara area, Montecito has trail systems throughout the community and many at the base of the Foothills, also the start of the Los Padres National Forest. Like the rest of Santa Barbara, the year-round sunshine and mild temperatures make it an ideal retreat for those seeking a serene coastal lifestyle. Its lush, tree-lined streets and manicured gardens complement the breathtaking backdrop of rolling hills and pristine beaches. There are also a handful of tennis, beach, and country clubs to further satisfy a lifestyle of recreation and leisure.

There are so many reasons buyers are attracted to Montecito; everything from the great schools, wonderful parks, trail systems, and the convenience and charm of its charming Lower Village center up to the less-bustling, but equally enticing, Upper Village. Montecito epitomizes coastal California living at its finest.
