Villa Monte Sereno - Scenic and Serene in Montecito

The "Hedgerow District" of Montecito is the well-established neighborhood where homes are largely concealed by century old meticulously manicured hedges, lending privacy and a bit of mystery to fine historic estates and beautifully maintained homes. 

Villa Monte Sereno, in classic "hedgerow style", sits proudly on nearly an acre behind private, wrought iron gates and characteristic massive hedges, resulting in an exquisite and secluded property suitable for the discerning world traveler. With an outward Mediterranean aesthetic of natural colored stucco and red tile roofs, the architectural and interior design blend with a certain relaxed elegance that is classic, comfortable  and very "Californian"! From sunrise to sunset, amazing views of the Santa Ynez mountains create a dramatic backdrop to this fabulous property.

In the main house, with smart design and fine detail, an abundance of amenities are offered throughout the property that the discerning traveler will appreciate. The configuration of the Main House consists of 4 en suite Bedrooms all with Ultra HD Smart TV's. The Master Suite (upstairs) is a sumptuous and romantic retreat with a luxurious King size bed and spectacular mountain views from the Juliet balcony. The large, spa-like Master Bath features a walk-in marble shower with a rain shower head. The two Guest Bedrooms upstairs feature a Queen size bed in one room and two twin beds in the other.  The downstairs Guest Bedroom features a Queen size bed.

The home features a Living Room with fireplace, Den with fireplace, Dining Room, Kitchen, Laundry Room with washer and dryer (w/steam option), two car garage, and 4,000 square feet of bright, sunny living spaces. The gourmet Kitchen features professional Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances with a large center island.

French doors lead to the private, lush backyard with shady trees. Plenty of seating on the stone patio outside offers a comfortable place to lounge in the sun or rest in the shade. In the evening, gather around the fire pit after enjoying dining under the stars. The pool terrace features a pool with built-in, 8 jet spa and chaise lounge seating. There is also an outdoor fireplace poolside underneath a pergola - the perfect spot to gather on chilly evenings! Stroll the grounds through lovely landscaping, savor the mountain views and enjoy a serene experience under the blue sky canopy. Families and friends alike are sure to enjoy the spacious feel the home has inside and out.

The Pool House sleeps two guests in a Murphy Bed, Full Bathroom with a steam shower, Living Room with fireplace and Smart TV, Dining Area and Kitchen.

Close proximity to both the Lower and Upper Villages of Montecito make the location absolutely ideal. Dine at world class restaurants or casual cafes, shop in unique boutiques, or, take advantage of the Friday Farmers Market and bring back some local produce to enjoy at home. Butterfly Beach across from the world renown Four Seasons Biltmore is just down the street, with downtown Santa Barbara only a ten minute drive away. Live the California Dream at Villa Monte Sereno! 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Owner's preference, there are NO WINDOW COVERINGS on the majority of windows, including but not limited to the Master Bedroom and other bedrooms. Refunds or requests to be moved will be denied due to this disclosure.
