Rancho Toro is a recently expanded Montecito adobe in a peaceful country setting, mere minutes from all the conveniences of Montecito & Summerland. Built in 1946, and enjoying a major renovation in 2011, the property boasts a beautiful three-bedroom home and a one-bedroom casita all on one serene and useable acre. The timeless, discreet, yet classic architecture of adobe style with exposed brick walls, open beam ceilings, terra cotta tile, and handsome masonry will transport you to California’s past. The heart of the home, the living room, is a wonderful sanctuary with original doors to covered patios and garden views. The well-equipped kitchen, breakfast nook, and formal dining room extend gracefully to the central patio. The entry library with wine storage, a ground floor master suite with fireplace, and an office/third bedroom suite complete the main level. A beautiful master suite commands the second level with an opulent bath and a private covered balcony. Resting under stately oaks, the gardens blend with the natural landscape and offer lush native plantings, numerous patios perfect for entertaining, stone barbecue, hot tub, and inspiring mountain views. Ideal for a creative retreat or home office, the separate casita enjoys a kitchenette, office, bedroom with full bath, loft, and attached covered parking area. A peaceful setting adjacent to seasonal Toro Creek, yet within minutes of world-class beaches, shopping, dining, and highway 101, this private getaway is a special retreat for the mind, heart, and soul.
