It Takes a Village

If you love shopping and being close to great dining, bakeries, antique stores, galleries, and more, Montecito has you covered.

There’s no village quite like Montecito, and here we’re fortunate to have two of them! In real estate there’s a growing trend of prioritizing walkability and accessibility to these charming villages over expansive acreage and ocean views.

Overflowing with top boutiques, such as James Perse, K. Frank, Johnny Was, and Whiskey & Leather, Montecito’s villages offer something for everyone.

Lower Village Duplex, Montecito

Just a leisurely stroll or a short drive away are four Montecito properties offering easy access to both villages. The first is a boutique beach duplex with fresh and vibrant interiors within minutes of the Lower Village where you can treat yourself to coffee at Caffe Luxxe or a salad at Merci—and don’t forget to indulge in their irresistible peanut butter cookie!

Perfectly positioned for convenience and privacy, the second option is an exquisite coastal zone compound/rental property with five chic San Ysidro Ranch–style cottages.

126 Loureyro Road Cottages, Montecito

Offering impeccable style and versatility, this property is in an ideal location where luxury shopping at the Rosewood Miramar Beach Resort is a short one mile away.

At the Miramar, you can explore esteemed brands like Brunello Cucinelli, Laykin et Cie, The Gatehouse, and all the artisanal finds from Goop Sundries.

501 Hodges Lane, Montecito

As you venture from the Lower Village to the Upper Village, serene woodland vistas and a laid-back ambiance takes over. Enjoy an array of great restaurants, like Pierre Lafond and Pane e Vino, and a boutique shopping experience with brands like Wendy Foster, Jenni Kayne, and Wunderkind.

Experience sophistication at 501 Hodges, which is less than a third of a mile from a treasure trove of home décor options; Upstairs at Pierre Lafond, Jenni Kayne Home, and William Laman Antiques are at your doorstep.
