THE MASINI ADOBE
ONE OF MONTECITO'S MOST HISTORIC LANDMARKS
Montecito's most historic home, built around 1820, has been lovingly restored and cared for. One of Santa Barbara's rarely offered premier adobes, this property exudes history, charm, and beauty. The classic Monterey-style architecture is elegant in its simplicity. A one-time stagecoach stop with a two-story garrison for troops, this adobe is steeped in history and intrigue. Originally, it is said to have been built as an outpost for the Santa Barbara Presidio to house Spanish soldiers.
Today, the home features a gracious living room and dining room, a state of the art star chef's kitchen, two bedrooms, and two baths. The adjoining carriage house has three bedrooms and one bath. The lovely grounds are surrounded by majestic oaks, herb gardens, and more than 100 rose bushes. Truly a rare find. Experience the magic.
