I just returned from a fabulous weekend of fun in Santa Barbara.
The weather was perfect!
The food was perfect!
The gorgeous flowers, shrubs, trees were perfect!
The ocean was perfect!
The Farmer's Market and fresh food PERFECT!!!
So I did a home search.
What could I buy in Santa Barbara and how much would it cost me???
I found this lovely for ONLY $19,500,000.00. (I guess all the perfection comes at a high-cost!?!)

The entrance to this world class gated four acre ocean view Montecito estate is found on a quiet and historic country lane known as Riven Rock. A long curving driveway lined by olive trees invites you to a large courtyard with fountain and a most impressive view of this two story Mediterranean with lushly landscaped gardens and ponds which softly frame the home. One step inside the door and you are transported to an elegant villa in Italy or France. You feel the drama created in the entry foyer with its dual curved staircases and its hand painted dome enhanced by an antique Murano glass chandelier. With five bedrooms in the main residence, a media room, library, and an ocean view solarium, the property completes its estate amenities with a wonderful pool pavilion for entertaining in the gardens and a luxurious guest house located near the tennis court. Experience the best of the Montecito lifestyle in a way few others ever will.
