Seaside Cottage - Romantic Haven by the Beach
Embrace the Montecito beach lifestyle with your first step into Seaside Cottage.
Completed updated and restored in 2008, no detail was left untouched in this romantic escape. The designer furnishings, new kitchen , new bath, and cozy master bedroom all combine to make this the best in Montecito beach living. Authentic antique touches are everywhere; including 1880's stained glass windows, vintage Roycroft 1903 hand made chandelier, and a 1903 electric fireplace with glowing glass embers.
The beauty and comfort continue as you walk outside to the creekside sandstone patio area. The river-rock fireplace can be used to warm you on chilly winter nights or just to create a mood for peaceful nightime conversation. To the right is the colorful Tuscany inspired lion's-head fountain, crafted on-site by talented artisans. Lounging and dining are easy in the quality hardwood teak furniture. A grand 200 year-old sycamore tree offers partial shade during the heat of the day. There is an herb garden which is flanked by Meyer lemon and Tangelo citrus trees and which provides rosemarry, thyme, chives, and spearmint to be used in the gourmet kitchen.
The brand new kitchen boasts a custom cobalt blue Viking range, new Fisher-Paykel refrigerator featuring a fast chilling wine rack, dishwasher, and many other amenities. Fresh cold drinking water is provided by the Everpure micro-filltration system. The surfaces are beautiful; nautral maple wood cabinets are contrasted with colorful and deatailed tile work. Even doing the dishes is a pleasure while looking over the patio to the creekbed below.
The living areas are colorful and comfortable. The bedroom feels like a fine hotel room and if you want to shut out the sunshine in the early morning or for an afternoon siesta, just use the remote control to operate the "Solar powered" shade in the skylight. The new bathroom has a special porcelein, oversized claw-foot tub and all new fixtures. The Living Room and Dining room are well designed and offer plenty of room for lounging and dining.
Two of Montecito's best beaches, Miramar and Hammonds, are just a 1/2 block away. Montecito Lower Village is an easy 2 minute drive. Santa Barbara, with its many attractions and beaches, is an easy 10 minute drive.
Seaside Cottage is certain to satisfy your need for the perfect beach getaway. Please consider it for your next Montecito escape.
NOTE: This property can be combined with the adjacent cottage (Seashell Cottage) to make a 3 bedroom /2 bathroom home. Access passages can be opened between both living rooms and patios.
