With its quaint atmosphere and upscale vibe, The Upper Village is a unique and welcoming area of Montecito near the crossroads of East Valley and San Ysidro Roads- just down the street from Oprah's estate! Visitors will be right in the middle of the magic at UPPER VILLAGE RETREAT. Well-established galleries and antique stores blend with casual "local's favorite"  restaurants and boutiques that attract a world-class clientele to the area. Literally, walk out the front door and be in the midst of this very charming community. 

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home has a modern exterior with warm and comfortable decor inside. Blue and neutral tones of cream and grey blend with warmer amber accents to create a pleasing color palette. Each curated space feels special.

Sleek modern lines, mirrored walls, and an abundance of doors and windows allow light to permeate each space and brighten one's perspective. The living room sectional faces a marble-front fireplace with gas logs. Dual love seats beneath picture windows flank the French doors that open to the enclosed back patio with two teak steamer deck lounges and a unique built-in seating area. The property, inside and out, has a distinctly serene feel.

The kitchen, sleek and uncomplicated, offers vast counter space, a 6-burner stove, and high gloss touch release cabinets that line a sizeable galley-style kitchen. Plenty of pretty platters and bowls are provided for service. The laundry is an extension of the kitchen space with a large capacity front-loading washer and dryer and more cabinets filled with numerous small appliances and culinary gadgets. 

A second patio off the dining area centers on a sectional couch around a fire pit. A whimsical blue umbrella adds shade over a glass dining table for four. An adjacent barbecue area with a built-in grill allows the grill master in the group to stay close to the patio conversation.

A spacious primary suite offers a king-sized bed, matching armchairs, television, and French doors leading to the back patio. With a  two-sided glass shower, marble counters, and plush towels, the en-suite bathroom is a spa-like escape. The second guest room features a queen-size bed with volume ceilings overhead, tall bookcases, mirrored closet,  and a sunny window seat. The adjacent hallway bathroom has a glass shower and granite counters. 

Please note the home is one side of a duplex, yet is extremely private and pleasingly serene. Park the car in the one-car garage, hop on the bike provided and take a very short ride to Butterfly Beach and Coast Village Road. On foot, step out the front door and head out to any number of local hiking trails, or simply enjoy a leisurely brunch and cappuccino on the patio at The San Ysidro Pharmacy enjoying the local flavor of this quaint village. Whatever the activity or restful moment, Upper Village Retreat will always feel welcoming, relaxing, and memorable.

The location was ideal!
We had a very enjoyable month staying in this property in Montecito. It was quite comfortable and well equipped. The location was ideal as we could walk to Pierre Lafond every morning for the New York Times and our fresh coffee. The outdoor space was lovely and perfect for taking advantage of the beautiful weather. There were a few minor issues with the condo , including that there was really no heat flow in the master bedroom. The management company was very attentive and addressed certain issues very quickly.

Our Stay Was Seamless
What a blessing to find this little gem. Wonderful setting- extremely private and quiet- yet so close to the restaurants and beautiful Montecito shops - actually all within walking distance- even the post office! Our needs were well met and communication was excellent. Cannot say enough nice things about our stay . We stayed for 6 weeks and enjoyed every moment!
