There is something very appealing about the idea of waking up in the morning, pouring yourself a cup of coffee, and walking your kids to elementary school, mug in hand. It is not an experience that many get to enjoy but the neighborhood just North of Cold Springs School offers just that. It is a unique part of Montecito where you actually know the people that live next door. When you walk out to get the paper you wave hello to the guy across the street and the biggest disturbance throughout the day is the group of boys asking if your son can come out and ride bikes.
Now, understandably, properties in this small neighborhood are typically held on to by the same families for generations and getting into this exclusive community can be easier said than done. Only so often does a home in the area become available to the market and when it does it seems to go quickly… Which is why 650 Stoddard Lane caught my eye.
Newly available, and I am sure not for long, is this stunning 1.6+ acre compound literally riding on the border of the school itself. The main house is a spacious ranch-style 4 bedroom2 Bath with a separate 2 bedroom1 bath cottage also on the property. With plenty of yard space and such close proximity to the school, this home jumps out as the perfect place to host sleep overs, camp outs and BBQs, quickly establishing your place as a fun neighborhood hang-out.
