This special property is idyllically located on part of the historic Arcady Estate in a quiet neighborhood between Montecito's Upper Village and downtown Santa Barbara, in proximity to Montecito Fire Station No. 2 and esteemed Cold Springs Elementary School. The Mediterranean style 3 bedroom and 3 bath home on a terraced .9-acre lot with multiple outdoor seating areas is a haven of tranquility. Totally reconstructed in 1997 to designs by Swiss architect Victor Schumacher, the light-filled single-story dwelling features skylights, vaulted ceilings, and French doors leading out from major rooms to individual patios. Surrounding gardens abound in roses and irises in spring, white bougainvillea in summer, exotic grasses in autumn, flowering perennials in winter, and various trees providing fruit year round. Added to this, sweeping valley views, magnificent mature trees, xeriscape plantings and multiple pathways throughout the grounds complete the sense of a private oasis. One pathway at the top of the property leads to a stunning scenic walk around much of the original Arcady Estate. Come listen to the sounds of twittering birds, fluttering butterflies, scampering squirrels, and silence.
