Okay, this is the big enchilada I've been hinting at for the last week ... This Estate is so new to the market as an event venue (it just got approval to do weddings last week), that it doesn't even have an official name. So for now, I'll call it Vista Linda.
Vista Linda is situated on the tippy-top of Toro Canyon in Montecito. With panoramic views of the mountains and Pacific Ocean, the views absolutely take your breath away.
The front lawn is only one of three massive green spaces that would be gorgeous for a welcome reception or as a Ceremony site. Killer mountain views!
The front lawn opens into the pool area which could be a fabulous site for cocktails. Tremendous ocean and mountain views flank the space.
Yes, that's the Santa Barbara harbor way down there. (It was slightly overcast on the day I toured the property, so the photos are a little hazy.)
The pool house has a full kitchen available for the caterers to use, a working fireplace, as well as His and Hers bathrooms on either side that would be available for guests.
I think I counted at least four outdoor fireplaces that would make gorgeous nooks for guests to gather.
Here is the second of the three laws. Easily room for 400 to have a sit down dinner reception, with plenty of room to spare for a dance floor, band and lots more. This lawn has spectacular ocean (see below) and mountain views, a koy "pond" and dynamite wrap-around stairs at one end that would make for a jaw-dropping Grand Entrance.
At the top of those wrap-around stairs is the rose garden. All trimmed right now, can you picture it when they are in season? OMG! The photos would be something.
And here is the third of the three lawns. Again, this one has majestic mountain views. This lawn could also easily seat 400 for dinner. This lawn would make another gorgeous Ceremony site ... or I love it as the after-dinner space for dancing, lounges, etc.
Okay, here is the 411:
* The pool house has a kitchen that is available for caterers to use, but they would likely need to bring in their own if you guest list exceeds 50
* The pool house has two bathrooms available for use, but more would need to be brought in if your guest list exceeds 50
* Maximum capacity is 400
* Amplified music would need to be shut off by 10pm
* Fee includes Friday set-up and Sunday removal of rentals
* Parking is available for the wedding party; Valet and/or shuttles would be recommended for guests
*Power is available, but a generator would also need to be brought in for evening events
