Montecito Real Estate & Homes for Sale in California
The community of Montecito, located just south of Santa Barbara, is an outgrowth of a real resort area to which wealthy people flocked to during the late 1800s, attracted by the mild climate, mineral hot springs and mountain and ocean vistas. The Montecito Inn is unique among Santa Barbara's landmarks. Located two blocks from the beach, the Inn was built in 1928 by silent screen legend Charlie Chaplin as a haven for Tinsel Town celebrities. The hotel is a product of Hollywood's Golden Era.
While Montecito's reputation as an enclave for the rich and famous may conjure up images of museum-like stores with price tags that defy gravity, the fact is that kind, welcoming residents do all their work, shopping and go about their daily lives in this wonderful community. The two shopping districts, Village Road and the Upper Village, are products of their location and their history. The area has many great houses on large real estate properties with lush lawns, shrubs and trees. Montecito real estate options consist of single-family detached homes, estate properties, condominiums and townhouses.
