Step Back in Time at a Private, Peaceful Country Hideaway in Montecito

Prepare to be transported back to the simplicity of vintage Montecito living at one of the area’s most private country hideaways, owned by the same family for over 45 years. At the top of a long, tree-lined drive, nearly six and a half acres of lush pastoral property are nestled among local ranches and surrounded by panoramic ocean, mountain, and hillside views. Scenic skylines, mountain vistas, and the melodic hum of nature create an enchanting dreamlike setting, while framed ocean views keep picturesque California charm ever-present. Discover what it’s like to live in tandem with nature as you explore the vast property to find a meandering creek, a hillside olive grove, and even a hidden island.

One of three structures on the property, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom, single-level rancher balances classic country living with breathtaking ocean and canyon views. The light-filled living room faces south and is anchored by a cozy fireplace, high ceilings, and built-in bookcases, while the primary bedroom suite enjoys the same special views. Vaulted ceilings, original wood floors, and rich wood paneling enrich the interiors, while the spacious kitchen and formal dining room encourage convenient gatherings. The attached two-car garage keeps storage out of sight for seamless organization.

Complete with its own driveway, a quaint one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest cottage with kitchen and living room sits alongside Toro Canyon Creek. Guests will feel in a world all their own as they relax with the soothing and meditative sounds of nature.

With its own separate driveway, prepare to feel inspired in the metal-clad barn. Designed as both a workshop and garage, the two-story space could house a cherished car collection or become a future party barn, this European-inspired structure is calling for your creativity.

Perched at the top of the property is a potential future estate building site with views that span the horizon. With ample acreage for horses, an orchard, rambling gardens, and additional structures, nostalgia for a simpler era can now be transformed into a reality.

2870 East Valley Road is being offered for $7,200,000. To learn more, contact the Marsha Kotlyar Estate Group at 805-565-4014 or [email protected].
