Hidden within the hedgerows of Montecito lies “Jacaranda House” which is now
available for lease for the first time since 1922. At that time this estate property was rented to
Harold Chase (the developer of Hope Ranch in the 1930’s). Since the beginning of the last
century, there have only been four owners of this significant residence.
Jacaranda House is the only house on Jacaranda Lane, which was its private driveway
until the 1920’s. It is surrounded by hedges and tucked into the 1 ¼ acres of English
gardens that surround it. The quiet country lanes are ideal for walking and bicycle riding.
The House is an easy 5 minute walk to the beach and just a few minutes to Crane School,
Laguna Blanca and Montecito Union. The Upper Village, Manning Park and Coast Village
Road are also within easy walking distance.
The main residence is 3 bedrooms 2.5 baths. It has a newer 2 car garage. In the rear
garden, hedges and rosemary surround the decorative pond, and the Gazebo provides
a tranquil setting. The side garden features box hedges, a rose garden and specimen oak
trees. The front lawn and patio surrounds the house and is framed by a massive
sculptured oak tree.
