Landmark Character Montecito Estate

Presenting Majestic and Historic Croydon House completed in 1929 with a grandeur and style of yesteryear.

Located in the much-coveted Lower Village area of Montecito and surrounded with park like grounds, this distinctive Country English home features beautiful light-filled rooms with grand scale and a warmth not present in today’s construction.

Gated for privacy with a semicircular gravel filled driveway, park your ride and wander into the secluded lemon arbor just ahead. Upon entering the vaulted foyer, dart to the private library and vanish through the secret passage leading to the guest quarters. Venture into the regal living room with over-sized fireplace and hold court with a martini shaken not stirred with a twist (cue lemon arbor...). Play hide-and-seek with the kids in the downstairs wine cellar before choosing the perfect wine for alfresco dining under the olive trees.

Opportunities abound with potential to build a second home on the 1.8± acre lot. The upstairs master suite has a large sitting room and from the balcony on a clear day the ocean beckons. Downstairs in addition to the wine cellar there is an extra bedroom and bathroom. A beautiful pool, spa and multitude of outdoor living areas complete this distinctive and singular paradise. Perfect for anyone seeking more than just a place to live.

Priced to excite your imagination-not to be missed. Please don't forget your children on the way out.
