Luxury abounds in beautiful Montecito. During the late 1800’s, the power brokers, movers and shakers from around the world vacationed in Santa Barbara. The fantastic climate, proximity to Los Angeles and spectacular beauty was enough to convince them that Montecito was the nirvana they were looking for. Today, Montecito embraces the celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kevin Costner, Ty Warner, Rob Lowe and Jeff Bridges. Not everyone is a movie star, but the luxury homes and mansions are enough to delight all. The mansion owners and the regular townsfolk enjoy mixing and mingling while shopping and dining along Coast Village Road and the Upper Village. The beaches and the scenery are spectacular. Housing opportunities are abundant, but also on the higher tier of the price range.
