Four dream homes for sale in Montecito   


The past couple of weeks have seen a number of great new listings hit the market in Montecito. The homes featured here are not entry level for the area, (which is more in the $2-$3,000,000 range), nor are they mega estates ($10,000,000+ for multi acres and more square footage). These featured homes fall into the estate category, but are priced in a more central price range, ($6-$9,000,000).

This is the price range one can expect to pay for a newer or remodeled home on an acre or more of land in a prime location in Montecito, with amenities such as pool, guest house, views, privacy, significant square footage (over 5,000 square feet), and such.

These four homes are all in the Montecito Union School District and all qualify in that “hard to find” category. If one were to look at the current inventory, one can see immediately that these are unique listings based on the street they are on, the size of the homes, the views, privacy, etc…

There is something here for everyone… well at least everyone who can afford it.
