One of the top elementary schools in California, Montecito Union, is less than a mile away, as are over 15 area trails, with the San Ysidro trailhead steps from the property’s backyard. World-class golf is only a few miles away. Hop on the scenic Pacific Coast Highway and head south for urban adventures in Los Angeles, or head north to Big Sur.
