The Spectacular Gated Beach Community of Sea Meadow in Montecito CA

Montecito Sea Meadow

Sea Meadow is a wonderful high-end, private and tropical feeling, guarded and gated beach community located steps from the Montecito beaches of Hammond's and Miramar.  A few minutes by foot and you can additionally access all there is to offer at The 4 Season's Biltmore Hotel and Coral Casino as well as all the shops and fine dining located at The Lower Village on Coast Village Road.  The people that live there consider this to be as desirable of a location as you can find.

Additionally, within 4-5 minutes by car you can arrive in Santa Barbara to the north or 1-2 minutes to the south and you are in Summerland with all its antique shops and cafes.  Santa Barbara’s relaxed and easygoing airport is only a 20 minutes drive to the north.

Commonly referred to by locals as “Mungerville,” Sea Meadow was developed by local resident Charlie Munger.  Mr. Munger apparently had a vision to create a community in which meticulous care would be stowed upon everyone who owned a residence in the community. This vision is very apparent by the overall quality of homes in the community as well as by all the spectacular amenities that come with home ownership at Sea Meadow.  The basic idea seemed to be for residents to enjoy a luxury turn-key home/facility where every aspect of the grounds and exterior is taken care of.  Again the idea that its residents could work and travel abroad and then return to their home feeling and seeing that all is taken care of.

The Sea Meadow enclave sits on roughly 22 lushly manicured acres that includes 4 true oceanfront homes and 27 other homes seconds to the beach.  The style and design of all homes that are found in Sea Meadows are French Normandy with top quality construction.

Prices for homes in Sea Meadow range greatly from roughly $3.5 million to $17 Million based on location and size.  HOA dues vary by home, but generally fall somewhere between $1500-$3000 per month.
