Mattei’s Tavern in Los Olivos is being taken over by a world-class hotel company. The Inn at Mattei’s Tavern, as the property will be known when it reopens in 2021, will have “a coffee bar porch” and “an open-air restaurant with a county fair energy.”
A world of your own in Montecito’s Hedgerow: Built in 1924, 1530 Mimosa Lane has the charm of an older property, but it has been expertly updated. The house just feels right—and, even at $9 million, not overpriced. Take a look around.
