Located on just over 1/3 acre, this private hilltop retreat enjoys all the rural charm of peaceful Sycamore Canyon, yet it's only a few minutes away from Downtown Santa Barbara, Montecito's Coast Village Road, and the beach. You will be amazed at the improvements made to this property over the last seven years of ownership! Remodeled to include custom cabinetry, high-end appliances and fixtures, Brazilian granite countertops, a large farmhouse sink, and handmade ceramic tile backsplash. The bathroom has also been completely remodeled with the same high level of quality. In addition to cosmetic improvements, the plumbing, electrical, and sewer lateral have been replaced, and central forced air gas heating was added. Other additions include a commercial-grade water filtration system in the kitchen, water softener, new hot water heater, newer front-loading washer and newer dryer, in-ceiling speakers in the living room, and a gas log set for the fireplace. Significant improvements have also been made to the exterior of the property. Rock walls have been raised and extended, avocado and citrus trees have been planted, an improved privacy fence was installed, and an automatic drip irrigation system was added.
