There's a brilliant and breathtaking property on the market in Montecito, Santa Barbara County, California. (Yes, the same Montecito where Oprah has her famous $50 Million home and where former Vice President Al Gore recently purchased a $9 Million Mansion). Well-known Los Angeles designer, builder and Realtor - Steve Hermann of Steve Hermann Design - has listed what must be his biggest masterpiece to date: The Glass Pavilion, a 15,000 sq ft home set on 3.5 acres.  As per the listing website, this is "An almost entirely glass home ... it allows the occupants to be comfortably inside while completely enveloped within nature". The listing site, however, does not provide details of the accommodation or living spaces. An extraordinary feature of the home is the art gallery, which can also d...

Monteciton Union School's Principal, Kris Bergstrom, was "released" from her contract in March of this year, pending MUS decision on restructuring and finding a new Superintendent. This release, and the way it was handled, has caused great concern among parents of of the highly-sought Montecito Union School.    In April, the MUS board decided to eliminate the position of principal in "favor of two newly-crafted administrative posts:  chief academic officer, in charge of academics, and dean of studens, who focuses on non-curriculum duties." Hoping to balance administrative responsibilities, the board made this decision after a recommendation from the School Services of California company which was hired as a consultant last November.  The current Montecito Union School Superintendent, Di...

Cold Spring School in Montecito was been named a California Distinguished School 2010.  With fewer than 500 in the State of California receiving this special recognition, we are very proud of our local elementary schools in the Santa Barbara and Montecito area!  Other schools recognized in the Santa Barbara area are Peabody Charter School and Santa Barbara Community Academy, both in Santa Barbara, and Aliso Elementary, in Carpinteria.  Jack O'Connell, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, said, "These schools have persevered despite state budget cutbacks that have cut deeply into the budgets of local school districts.  I encourage educators throughout our state to review the signature practices that distinguished schools are using to improve student achievement."

The coastal paradise of Montecito CA. seems to always find its place in the top 10 most expensive neighborhoods in the United States.  It is not hard to argue with this based on the quality of life that it offers with the small village feel, gorgeous scenery, ocean views and coastal beaches, access to Santa Barbara etc. In 2009, after a slower start to the year, there continued to be the buyer demand we have been used to for quality properties in Montecito and Santa Barbara in general.  Although prices have dropped 20-35% from the peak a few years back, the top 10 MLS reported sales in Montecito still ended up being extremely impressive. Rockbridge Road, Montecito CA., 93108 and sold for $25,279,000.  The highest sale within this luxury market was ... Read Full Story Further Reading: Th...
