Hello! How are you doing today? I’m feeling great! I’m starting this year planning to give more attention to my house. Do you know when you feel the need for a change? When you want to see something different, something that reflects more who you are? We moved to this house almost four years ago and even though I like where we live, I still feel it’s missing something. But this is not a bad thing, actually. I think it’s really rare for us to live in a home where every single room is perfectly done and nothing else could be added, changed or improved. I’m excited to slowly make of this place my own. I know it will take a while to be the way I want, but that’s also part of the process and I know I’ll be having fun!
Now, to the post of the day.
Some places you see and you just wish you were there. This California rancher is the kind of house that embraces beauty and comfort. The property is surrounded by approximately 40 acres of natural preserve, which is a dream for people that like privacy.
What I like the most about this place are the white interiors and the vibrant natural green outside. This home feels completely balanced and harmonious.
This Montecito, California house is offered for $3.195 mil.
Wood paneling grazes the walls and pitched beamed ceilings add a farmhouse allure.
A Santa Barbara stone fireplace creates a romantic ambiance for the living and dining areas.
The kitchen is very small but its finishes are great, besides not only huge kitchen can be stunning, right? This is a great inspirational room that can be useful for any space, from a home like this to an apartment.
Dreamy and delightful with elegant stone flooring and encircling windows.
This is why I fell in love with this home! This is what I call “timeless”. Gorgeous hexagon tiles.
Sublime Guest Bedroom
So spacious and stylish.
Sweet Guest Bedroom
Fairytale-like three views.
You guys know how crazy I am for cottages, right? Now, imagine having a cottage in your backyard?
The cottage is one of my favorite features of this house.
Another great use of space.
Sprawling lawns, fruit trees, mature oaks and natural stone pathways lead up to the house.
I really hope you guys enjoyed this place. What’s your favorite room? I’m in love with the master bathroom and I can dream with the detached cottage. That would be my space! Although I think I’d have to “fight” for that, since I’m sure my husband would love to have it too. Well, who wouldn’t, right?
Have a wonderful day and thank you for coming to visit me here today! 🙂

I love this cottage style California ranch. It must be all those charming windows and the painted wood walls (both board and batten and tongue and groove) and ceilings. My favorite is the sweet guest room. The long row of windows looks lower than normal, giving it that fairy tale cottage feel, but the vaulted ceiling keeps it from feeling claustrophobic. And I like the row of square windows above the pretty bed, as well as the green views outside. Lovely.
love all the natural light, plus it’s so airy too!
Oi Lu, minha querida! saudades, amiga! como estão as coisas por aí? muita correria? Eu, felizmente, mas tb infelizmente hehe, não tenho conseguido dar conta de tudo o que gosto de fazer e, uma delas, são as visitas às amigas. Tomara que vc me perdõe!! beijinhos, Carmen
Oooh wowy wow! LOVE it all!! Especially that bathroom, that would be MY space!!!
So beautiful this ranch! Gorgeous.
I’m sure that changes in your home will be very pretty.
Very nicely done…I like how they took full advantage of all the space and really like the bedrooms in particular. Done in very good taste. Very roomy, the outside doesn’t let on thats its actually quite spacious…fave rooms are master and bathroom.
Dear Luciane, how are you? Thanks for showing us your gorgeous house. It looks so idyllic, I want to come over and visit right now 🙂 Hope you have a lovely evening!
My favorite room is the very first one. I feel in love as soon as I saw it! Headed over to Pinterest now to pin it 🙂
I hope you are having a great day, my friend!
I absolutely love the wood paneling!
You know I love this one Luciane. Great, serene color palette and the paneled walls and ceilings are amazing!! So happy to hear from you today. Hope you are starting to get your head above water. Will still wakes up every 3 hours all night…any tips from a pro?!
*** This southern California born n’ bred gal LOVES this… it’s COMFY and N*O*T “SHOWY”… There’s warmth and lots of it, and privacy w/ all that land… I’m wondering tho, WHERE’S the obligatory/ubiquitous POOL??? That would HAVE to be added for sure…
Hubby has a HUUUUGE DISLIKE for “monuments (he means homes) to your success”… This being simple, direct, filled with great natural light & being SO comfy would suit us just fine!!! I think we’d like the GUEST ROOM for OUR master, too… I find it rather enchanting!!!!!!
Am soooo glad you shared this today~~~ I enjoyed my visit!!!

Luciane, the house is wonderful, especially the light. I don t know where do you have all this energy with 3 kids. cudos to you,my friend BIG hug
incredible place, doesn’t it just say home….
I don’t usually love the outside of ranches, but the inside of this one is so amazing that I would overlook that! The one thing I do love about ranches is that the first floors are so huge, like this one
Perfeita Luciane, aquela casa que vc olha e sente logo que amaria estar lá.. claríssima, elegante mas com certa simplicidade, muito aconchegante! Eu amaria viver ali!
This is so gorgeous… I would like to emulate every aspect depicted herein for the remodel of my little 1959 custom California ranch style (only 2,000 sq. ft. on a third of an acre in So Cal)… Where do I begin? It’s been 12 years since we purchased it from the original owner, so it’s time. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
