Santa Barbara is one of the most picturesque locales in the U.S. with the real estate prices to match. But that doesn’t stop us from swooning at this cute four-bedroom, four-bathroom property in nearby Montecito, California.

The 2,691-square-foot home was originally built as an adobe in 1946 and underwent a major renovation and expansion in 2011 to include a main three-bedroom house and a smaller one-bedroom guest casita. Original features abound, like exposed brick, open beam ceilings, terra cotta tile, and handsome masonry, while updated features include a well-equipped kitchen and wine storage.

The upstairs master features a private covered balcony and fireplace, and the surrounding one-acre plot of land looks fit for a magazine shoot. The home takes advantage of the mild California weather, boasting a covered patio and landscaped garden. Potential buyers will appreciate the large oak trees, lush native plantings, stone barbecue, hot tub, and mountain views.

The 416-square-foot guest casita includes a kitchenette, bedroom with full bath, and attached covered parking area. Love what you see? 2960 Torito Road is on the market now for $2,895,000.
