Stuart Whitman’s Montecito Ranch Up for $62 Million

By Richard Mineards   |   November 19, 2020

A scenic Montecito ranch owned by the late Oscar-nominated actor Stuart Whitman is up for grabs for $62 million, one of our rarefied enclave’s most expensive properties.

Stuart, well-known for cowboy roles in films with John Wayne, owned the 13-acre estate in the Santa Ynez Mountains until his death in March at the age of 92.

The late actor Stuart Whitman’s 13-acre Montecito estate has hit the market for $62 million

He sold another property, just a tiara’s toss or two from the San Ysidro Ranch, two years ago to local philanthropist Sara Miller McCune.

The hacienda-style compound has three structures with a total of four bedrooms, and three and a half baths, a swimming pool, tennis court and sweeping ocean, mountain and island views.

It is reached by a 200-foot driveway and covered patios line the backside of the home and walking paths wander through the palm-topped grounds.

Stuart, whom I would often drink coffee with at Pierre Lafond, was known for his acting in The Comancheros, Night of the Lepus, and the Western series Cimarron Strip.
