Surrounded by the Santa Ynez Mountains and Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara and neighboring Montecito, affectionately known as the American Riviera, offer a lifestyle rich with culture, history and exceptional scenic beauty. Known for their red tile roofs, world-class beaches and small town vibe, this much-loved coastal enclave is home to some of the most prestigious estates in the country. An eclectic mix of architectural styles colors the surrounding canyons and hillsides—from Spanish-inspired colonials and 1920s Mission revivals built as vacation homes for wealthy east coast families to prized midcentury moderns surrounded by towering oak trees. The community strikes the perfect balance between beauty and substance, from gorgeous beaches, vineyards, hiking trails and golf courses to international film festivals, world-class polo and renowned art museums. Upscale dining, well-curated boutiques, innovative galleries, sleek wine tasting rooms and local farmers’ markets elevate the everyday experience, while its proximity to Los Angeles and San Francisco makes for a perfect second home destination.
