The last significant estate site in Montecito, California -- 13 acres of paradise waiting for development as a world-class manor -- rests on coveted San Ysidro Road between the majestic Santa Ynez Mountains and the sparkling Pacific Ocean. It offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in one of North America’s most sought-after settings.
A Montecito Estate Site With Endearing Provenance and Boundless Opportunities
Formerly owned and loved for more than 40 years by the late Hollywood film and television legend Stuart Whitman, the property currently hosts 3 modest structures as well as a pool and tennis court. Whitman created a hacienda-style compound and imported Saltillo tiles from Mexico that were used for the many entertaining patios and walking paths, pool area and interior flooring.
Whether the existing features are renovated or removed, opportunities abound for creation of the ultimate domain: a truly magnificent Montecito estate. The site represents an extraordinary canvas on which one can bring dreams, imagination and life-long goals to reality. The abundant acreage provides room for equine facilities, vineyards and, of course, spectacular gardens and recreation amenities.
Privacy, Security and Supreme Convenience
Considering the property’s location within this privileged community, and considering its magnitude, breathtaking panoramic ocean, island and mountain vistas, and its access via a more than 200-yard driveway, its serenity, security, and privacy can be easily assured.
While this incredible Montecito estate site offers immersion in first-class living and paramount privacy, it is located mere minutes from pristine beaches; the distinctive shopping, dining and services of Montecito’s Upper Village and Coast Village Road; the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, world-renowned San Ysidro Ranch, Four Seasons Santa Barbara Biltmore and Coral Casino Beach Club; and much more. It is just 20 minutes from the Santa Barbara Airport, which accommodates both private and commercial aircraft, and 90 minutes from Los Angeles and its International Airport.
The prospect of purchasing a world-class Montecito estate site such as this presents itself perhaps only once in a generation.
