A gem along the California coastline, Santa Barbara features gorgeous beaches, vibrant equestrian life, great shopping, and fine dining. It’s beachside living at its finest, offering an incredible, luxurious lifestyle of ease, surrounded by nature. It’s no wonder that many celebs are calling it home.
Here are three spectacular homes that are certainly show-stoppers—with room to roam, exquisite architecture, and their own unique stories to tell, they truly represent the best of Santa Barbara living.
Listed by Billy Rose and recently featured by Robb Report, this 106-acre coastal ranch estate has been tamed in the best of ways, and yet left untouched and natural in others. Three Hawks Ranch is located in the most historically significant section of the Gaviota Coast, next door to the historic Reagan Ranch. The property’s original stone house from the 1920s has been remodeled and expanded. Its 12-foot ceiling and wrap-around glass walls capture the 15-mile view down the hillside, across the ocean and out to the Channel Islands. Offering endless trails for hiking and horseback riding, large open fields, and quiet places to watch the sunset over the ocean with a glass of wine, Three Hawks Ranch is the perfect country refuge from the noise and stress of the city.

Inspired by the Italian countryside and masterfully designed for the California-coastal lifestyle, this extraordinary estate in Summerland is listed by Mauricio Umansky, Eric Haskell, and Eduardo Umansky and includes a magnificent 9,503-square-foot main residence. The perfect marriage of modern sophistication and timeless grandeur, the estate is located on 18 blufftop acres, showcasing panoramic views stretching from the Santa Ynez Mountains to the Channel Islands, Santa Barbara to Malibu.
The historic Rancho Dos Vistas, listed by Eric Haskell, Paul Lester, and Aileen Comora, is an extraordinarily rare offering along the ultra-exclusive and undeveloped Gaviota Coast. Rancho Dos Vistas takes its name from its dual views of both the undeveloped Gaviota coast and the Santa Ynez Valley. The awe-inspiring scale of the property combined with the world-class views makes this one of the most unique and sought-after properties on the California coastline. Escape into a natural playground unlike any other with rock outcroppings, oak trees, wildlife, and a private lake—incredible outdoor adventures and natural wonder.
