Montecito California Real Estate

In Spanish, the name Montecito means, loosely, “little mountain,” and in the middle of the 19th century this area was known as a haven for bandits who hid in the oak groves and verdant canyons, preying on the traffic using the coast route between the towns that had developed around the missions. By the end of the 19th century, rich tourists from the Eastern United States began to buy up land in the area due to its close proximity to essential services in Santa Barbara and because of its rural, secluded location and ideal weather. Today, Montecito California real estate is some of the most sought-after and exclusive real estate in the country. From grand estates tucked away behind the privacy of gates and meticulously landscaped grounds, to elaborate oceanfront villas and charming 1920’s beach cottages, Montecito CA real estate offers something for even the most discerning of today’s luxury buyers.
