Years ago, I went to Santa Barbara by myself for a job interview at a television station there. I was applying to be a t.v. news reporter. Even though, I was from Los Angeles, I had only been to Santa Barbara one or two times before. My interview was delayed so I ended up finding a coffee shop in a very nice part of town…a beautiful part of town and I thought to myself at the time…”I could definitely live here”. Well as it turns out, I was in Montecito. Montecito is the tony enclave of Santa Barbara with multimillion dollar homes and priceless ocean views. Oprah lives in Montecito now. Makes sense. Leave it to me to pick one of the nicest most upscale towns to pick as my future home. I still want to live in Montecito one day by the way. I called it paradise on earth at the time…and I still think the same.
Anyhooo…because a few of my Instagram followers have said they love million dollar homes (thanks again KK for speaking up, I have received other emails too), today I bring you a stunning Montecito mansion.
Listed by Suzanne Perkins of Sothebys, 815 Cima del Mundo is a classic romantic estate with sweeping ocean views.
Set on 10 acres, with approximately 12,000 square feet, this 6 bedrooms, 10 bath home was built back in 2008. The home is a blend of Spanish Mediterranean styles with arched windows and doorways and a red Spanish tile roof. Inside, the home is on the traditional side but feels fresh because of all of the gorgeous steel windows and stunning views. Ok in all honesty…it is a little traditional for me…but not so much that I wouldn’t take it in a minute and live there happily ever after. Wouldn’t you? Take a tour!
So would you take this or leave it? I am voting for taking it!
P.S. Have a great weekend!
