Panoramic ocean, island and coastline views are enjoyed from 3519 Padaro Lane, on the sand of Santa Barbara’s most desirable beach.

Right on the sand, the approx. 1,912 sq.ft  beachside main home has fabulous ocean views, three bedrooms and three full baths.

Pretty flowering plants line the walkway to the main house.

There is a large deck on the mountain side of the main home, perfect for gathering on breezier days and evenings.

Ocean and island views are enjoyed immediately upon entering this classic beach home.

Open beam ceilings, walls of glass and a Texas shell stone fireplace enhance the beachy vibe.

Inside, there are two ocean view dining areas, one for larger gatherings and the other for a casual meal next to the kitchen.

Outside, al fresco dining is enjoyed either on the large deck or closer to the beach on the seaside patio.

Surprisingly and delightfully private, this deck is the perfect spot for sunbathing too.

The ocean view kitchen features multiple skylights, extensive counter and storage space and a convenient office nook.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite is a private sanctuary, with a romantic seaside deck as well as a mountain view deck.

One of the two bedrooms on the main level is currently used as a den.  It has an adjacent full bathroom that accesses the outside for convenience when coming off the beach.

The other bedroom has an en suite full bathroom.

The detached guest house has a living room with fireplace, bedroom, small kitchen and a large deck with a peek of the ocean, all atop a laundry room and two car garage.

With 50′ of beach frontage, the very deep 0.39 acre parcel offers intriguing possibilities for further development.

Just two doors east down the beach, on a slightly smaller parcel than 3519 Padaro Lane’s, a 5,202 sq.ft. home with 615 sq.ft. attached garage and 671 sq.ft. of decks is currently under construction.  Please click here to view information regarding that exciting project.


While other local Santa Barbara beaches on which there are homes are “wet” or “seasonal” beaches, Padaro Lane’s beach cove is almost always a dry sand beach.

Public access the cove is very difficult, given a large seawall projecting seaward at Padaro’s eastern end and cliffs at its western end.

Given its wonderful privacy, Padaro Lane one of the most desirable choices for beach home ownership.


Montecito is about a 5 minute drive up the coast from Padaro Lane and Santa Barbara is about 5 minutes further than that.  Los Angeles, only about 90 minutes down the coast, feels a world away.
