Set amongst the oak-laden lanes of the highly desired Hedgerow neighborhood of Montecito, this delightful traditional cottage with hints of Spanish Colonial Revival awaits the most discerning of buyers. Clean, crisp, and sophisticated interiors are found throughout, including oak flooring stained a perfect hue complimenting the linen white walls. The inviting living room and its fireplace with a deep gray honed granite hearth is flanked by two large picture windows framing the verdant green lawn, hedge and native California plantings of the backyard. Restored kitchen cabinets and countertops are contrasted by modern state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, and a cozy built-in breakfast nook beckons to enjoy a morning cup of coffee while sunlight streams in. A formal dining room adjoins the kitchen with a door leading to the backyard patio; perfect for alfresco dining on warm summer days and coastal balmy evenings. A guest room with en-suite bath and views of mature avocado trees, as well as a dedicated laundry area are accessible through the kitchen.
The bedroom wing on the eastern portion of the home features an anteroom that leads to a stunning pitched-roof master bedroom with garden views, a large walk in closet, and a sumptuous bathroom. Next to the master, a converted bedroom serves as a cozy family room with built in cabinetry for media equipment, books, keepsakes and a computer work area; a sanctuary to binge watch your favorite series or a hideaway to get some work done. The luxurious hallway bath, replete with a travertine tiled tub and shower, services the large, light and bright third bedroom with its two garden exposures.
Once outside, meandering pathways winding through avocado, citrus and specimen trees span the property. Gorgeous plantings line the dual access gated motor court and detached two-car garage on this corner lot. Ideally located in the highly coveted Montecito Union School District and minutes from the Upper Village, Coast Village Road, Miramar and Hammonds beaches and the soon to be opened Miramar Beach Hotel. A versatile, charming home suited for a variety of lifestyles.
