Welcome to Montecito’s favorite seaside neighborhood: Hill Road.

While summers on Channel Drive are a sea of beach-goers, bikes, and guests of the Four Seasons Biltmore, 1159 Hill Road enjoys a quiet existence and peaceful ocean views.

A world away, yet only one block removed, this coveted address is a perfect blend of easy beach life and tranquil vibes. Direct, private beach access is perfect for morning walks with summer sand on your toes or riding winter waves. 

Inside the stunning residence, a recent renovation includes French oak floors that ground the great room and a vaulted, redwood ceiling that floats overhead. The full southern expanse opens to a generous, ocean view terrace that extends the living space into the great outdoors and fills the home with cool sea breezes. 

 
 

A dry-stack stone fireplace anchors the room and warms cool evenings, while built-in storage and shelving are perfect for books, photos, and treasures. Thoughtful details throughout the home help elevate life’s everyday moments into treasured experiences. 

The dining area looks to the front gardens and opens to the north patio with views of a gorgeous oak tree. Perfect for cozy dinners for two or hosting a holiday crowd, this space, adjacent to the kitchen and looking to the living room, is the ultimate example of an open floor-plan’s easy existence. 

A spacious kitchen is ideal for creating, sampling, experimenting, and indulging. Ample work and storage space blend beautifully with professional appliances and granite counters. Natural light from the garden and transom windows fills the space with a warm sunny glow. Morning smoothies, al fresco lunches, and evening cocktails are all perfectly at home in this fabulous space.

The ocean view terrace allows for lazy afternoon lounging in the sun and open air dining in the salty air. Looking to the sea and Channel Islands beyond, this terrace is an integral part of the home’s coveted indoor/outdoor lifestyle. 

 
 

Lush botanicals in the gardens below give the home a tropical sensibility and feeling of being on permanent holiday.

The spacious master suite looks to the sea and enjoys tranquil ocean breezes.

Vaulted, white wooden ceilings and green garden views give the room a relaxing, “tree-top” feeling that is perfect for unwinding at the end of a busy day. Built-in storage and a walk-in closet offer abundant storage. Whether you yearn for the change of seasons or enjoy a life lived in flip-flops and swim trunks, multiple closets provide ample space for your wardrobe. 

The lower level is home to two spacious bedrooms, each that opens to the deck and lush backyard beyond, and two full baths.

Guests and loved ones alike will appreciate the beautiful accommodations and idyllic setting. Outside, a private studio with an exterior entrance is perfect for a massage room, creative space, or yoga retreat. 

 
 

The backyard is home to a zen-like garden complete with fanning palms and ovations of bamboo. Nestled amongst the grounds, a large fireplace casts a warm glow over the grounds while a secluded hot tub is perfect for warming up after an ocean swim. Whether you prefer morning tea in the garden or an evening soak under the stars, the back yard is full of magical spaces. 

This incredibly serene and impeccable oasis with direct access to Butterfly Beach offers an idyllic beach experience on coveted Hill Road. Why just vacation at the beach when you can live there!
