This Montecito estate compound is considered by the estate brokerage community to be the finest Montecito Estate Parcel currently available under $10 million. It has the unique amenity of having the most desirable Montecito ocean, island, city, harbor and mountain views that are elevated and yet close in and so just a short distance to Montecito’s chic Coast Village Road shops and restaurants and the Montecito upper village on East Valley Road, with its quaint village atmosphere and shopping area. As a most desirable Montecito estate parcel within the Santa Barbara estates market segment, it is really quite a rare find.
There are only 6 other view properties available within the coveted Montecito Cold Springs School District. Perched on the uppermost Montecito estate parcel in the desirable Pepper Hill neighborhood, with its awe inspiring sweeping view vistas from all vantages within the gated compound, this rare Santa Barbara estates offering has not been available for 15 years and has been extensively updated within that time to become one of the premier Montecito estates offerings within the Montecito real estate market place. It shares the same ridge line and views and is within sight, just 2 properties away, from the historic and majestic Brooks Institute Estate campus, which is a truly magnificent property of approximately 7 estate acres built in 1920 by an associate of famed architect George Washington Smith and is quite reminiscent of the Smith style. It is a large and magnificent example of period Mediterranean architecture. Having been converted to the Brooks Institute of Photography college facility some time in the 1950’s and reconfigured and used as such since that time, it will entail a huge redevelopment undertaking to convert it back to the exquisite estate home it once was. That multimillion dollar undertaking, combined with its $12 million acquisition cost, highlight the true value of the 350 Woodley Road property, a turn key Montecito estate offering at $8.5 million. Additionally the parcel between the Brooks Institute estate and 350 Woodley Road, situated at 351 Woodley Road was just sold in May of 2008 for $10.5 million, which included a 5 bedroom, circa 1961 home needing much help and offering lesser views at a 30 to 40 ft lower elevation as compared to 350 Woodley Road. Clearly this privately offered estate is a genuine value even in today’s market conditions and is an excellent investment moving forward.
In the Santa Barbara real estate market, an estate offering of this magnitude, at this price point has rarely been seen in the Montecito Estates market segment below $10 million in the last 8 to 10 years. Montecito estate properties, with close in views and desirable flatter land parcels like this are rare, and are seldom within the Montecito Cold Springs School District, which creates additional value.
