Beachside Cottage in Montecito

A charming board-and-batten cottage situated privately behind gates boasts an open floor plan and direct access to Butterfly Beach, one of Central California’s most beautiful beaches. The enticing home on over a half-acre  is in one of the world’s most enviable coastal locations.




Wall-to-ceiling windows and double sets of French doors fill the inviting living room with light, and give the residence its easy, California-living atmosphere. An exposed, pitched beam ceiling, hardwood floors and a large fireplace add to the allure.




Adjacent to the living room is the open and airy kitchen/dining room with  built-ins, a corner fireplace and ocean views. The French doors open to the expansive deck, making it a perfect gathering place for friends and family.




Two cozy bedrooms lie together in the western wing of the house, sharing a bath with three vanities and two water closets; one with ocean views and French doors that lead out to the deck and pool, the other with a sitting area with view of the entertaining patio and ocean peeks.

Located privately at the eastern end of the house, enjoying the warmth and light from the morning sun, the master suite boasts ocean peeks, a bath with dual vanities and a generous walk-in closet.




The office/den is located between the dining room and the master suite and also offers access to the deck and pool while offering glimpses of the Pacific through the trees: a wonderful place to settle-in with a good book or to work from home.




Just outside on the north side of the property, an intimate canopied seating area warmed by a brick fireplace makes for cozy late-night entertaining after a day spent at the beach.




To the south, French doors open to a spacious entertaining deck boasting lovely views of the powerful Pacific that appears just beyond arm’s reach, but is only moments away.




Just below the deck, enveloped in warm flagstone, lies the pool: a peaceful escape that rests among manicured gardens. A secured, gated entryway encloses ample parking. The two-car garage, gym (with its own full bath), and separate laundry room, attached to the main house, round out the estate’s amenities. With direct access to the beach and a uniquely large lot, this charming board and batten cottage is what many envision as beachside living perfected.
