Making Montecito Memories

MAKING MONTECITO MEMORIES - Live in the center of Montecito history -- in the early 1900's, William H. Cowles, newspaper publisher, purchased 47 acres in the western portion of the upper Montecito valley; his brother-in-law Phillip B. Stewart purchased adjoining acreage, all lying between the Eucalyptus Hill road and the Barker Pass road. They went on to create beautiful country estates for their own occupancy and enjoyment; this purchase also led to the opening/dedication of the Barker Pass Road and the naming of this road. An area of natural beauty and privacy; Cowles Road also offers a home for you! This Mediterranean multi-level, redesigned and enhanced by its architect owner features over 3100 sq feet, ocean and mountain views, guest quarters with separate entrance, and two oversized

2-car garages. An 800-sq. ft basement with interior and exterior access offers many possibilities. The master suite showcases a view balcony, A/C and a spacious sitting room with fireplace. Guest quarters are spacious with separate kitchen, laundry room and living area with a wood-burning stove. A stone pathway leads to a putting green in a shady woodsy natural setting!
