Steeped in rich California history, Sea Ranch peacefully sits on 4 acres of prime Montecito coastal land; an easy walk to 3 beautiful beaches and Montecito's Lower Village. On this same land, the native Chumash Indians lived in the village named Shalawa. In the mid 1800's the property was converted to rich farm land. Today, the vast open spaces have been maintained, and the original footprint of the carriage house barn has been thoughtfully preserved.
Enter the property through private wooden gates on a street named for the family who owned the property at the turn of the century. Statuesque eucalyptus, palms and oak trees stand sentry around this very private property. Rolling lawns, shaded sitting areas, lush tropical gardens, and a vast "park-like" backyard paint a rich landscape; setting the tone for a very special experience. Walking trails and wooded paths lead to the beach and to a legendary Montecito surf spot known as Hammonds Reef.
This completely renovated residence is rich in warmth and rustic ambiance, while offering every modern convenience and upscale amenity possible. Throughout the home, cedar wood planks and beams from the original structure have been thoughtfully recycled. A combination of waxed white oak floors, French reclaimed terra cotta tile and unique doors and windows add to the impeccable craftsmanship of this exquisite property.
