MONTECITO

This area is perhaps home to Santa Barbara’s most diverse architecture, as people came from across the world to build their dream homes in the natural beauty of Montecito. The area boasts prime examples of Mediterranean, Tudor, Cape Cod, Normandy, Roman, Persian, and, of course, Spanish Colonial Revival style homes designed by such seminal architects as George Washington Smith, Frank Lloyd Wright, Bertram Goodhue, and Reginald Johnson. Many estates have equestrian facilities, tennis courts, and/or pools, and ocean, island, and mountain views abound.

Among the many benefits of home ownership are the private Hope Ranch Beach Park, with its cabanas and picnic areas, and over 22 miles of bridle paths, evidence of Hope Ranch’s long equestrian tradition.

The area is home to renowned surf break Rincon Point, as well as the world-class Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club, which hosts weekly matches throughout the summer months.

UPPER EAST – MISSION DISTRICT

Just off of State Street, between Valerio, the Riviera, and the Mission, is the Upper Eastside.

This area is often considered--along with Montecito, Hope Ranch, and the Riviera--to be among Santa Barbara’s most prestigious.

Tucked behind neat hedgerows are unique and elegant mansions and cottages. Many are historic homes, dating from the early 1900s, which have been lovingly maintained or restored and surrounded by mature landscaping. The architectural variety includes prime examples of Edwardian, Mediterranean, Tudor, and Craftsman styles.

This area, stretching from the Old Mission into the Santa Barbara foothills, is rich in natural beauty. Creeks flow through its wooded canyons, which are home to artists’ retreats, parks and open spaces, relics of the Spanish Colonial days, the Museum of Natural History, and the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens.

Most houses in the area are built with an eye toward the natural, rustic setting. Contemporary homes with walls of glass invite the outdoors in, and sprawling, ranch-style houses offer views and natural light in every room.
