Now publicly for sale for the first time ever is the Mount Calvary Monastery property, a most cherished and special place in the heart of beautiful sunny Santa Barbara, California by the Pacific Ocean.  Originally part of the Santa Barbara Mission founded in 1786, before separating to become its next-door neighbor, the property holds a unique sacred history.

Since 1952, the structures and grounds have been hosted continuously as a spiritual retreat and space for congregation.  They consist of 2 historic estate homes plus a beautiful chapel on 5 bucolic acres.  One of the grand estate homes dates from the 1910’s, and currently serves as a guest retreat house with 17 rooms for 24 guests.  The other estate home was built in the 1880’s and now houses the monastery brothers, and also includes the common kitchen, dining and meeting rooms for the guests.  The grounds include several beautiful spaces for spiritual reflection and soaking in awe-inspiring views.

A new owner will acquire a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to inherit the unmatched location, views, spirituality, tranquility, history and beauty of this revered property.  Please visit the property website for more information.
