Tranquility is a common thread that runs through Montecito, from the amply spaced lots, to its unique greenways, landscaped parks and lake that surround the whole community. The entire development was carefully designed to blend with the natural landscape.With 60 hectares of rolling hills generously divided into 270 lots, Montecito is Ayala Land Premier's lowest density development in 50 years. It is perched on rolling terrain, where homes will be on one of NUVALI's highest points. Its refreshing breeze cools the atmosphere, creating a feeling far removed from the stress of the city, yet only a short distance away from schools, malls and future business districts.
Named after the scattered hills that envelop the estate, Montecito is ideally situated at the heart of NUVALI, the country's first economically, environmentally and socially sustainable eco-community.
Peace and quiet is at the core of this 60-hectare expanse. Montecito, "little mountain", charms with its rolling terrain and breezy, elevated landscape. Overlooking the mountains to the South, the view extends from the bustling Makati skyline to the serene Laguna de Bay.
Montecito reserves half of its area to open space. And in an unconventional design, it provides greenways between most homes for added privacy, ventilation and recreational space.
Generously planned into only 280 lots, it is Ayala Land Premier's lowest density development since Forbes Park in Makati.

Montecito is ideally situated at the heart of NUVALI, a 1,700 hectare masterplanned Southern township destined to be the country's first economically, environmentally and socially sustainable eco-community.Only a ten minute drive from the future NUVALI hub, it is far enough from the city rush and yet, it retains the convenience of modern living.
With the coming of the country's largest corporations to build landmark commercial and residential developments in the area, Canlubang is poised to become one of the Philippines' premier cities of the future.
Set in the heart of NUVALI, its prime location is conveniently close to a number of establishments:
Tranche 2 is a semi-private enclave within Montecito, giving its residents added privacy and exclusivity. There are a total of 52 lots in the tranche with a size range of 978 sqm to 1,386 sqm. Some lots in this tranche are in close proximity to the Nuvali Bird Sanctuary and have views of Laguna De Bay or Makati Skyline.
Tranche 3 features various types of lots in Montecito. These lots include estate lots that are directly accessible from the widest greenway in the development. Other lots are strategically located near the heart of Montecito, the Pasa Tiempo. These are for residents who wish to enjoy a more active and social lifestyle being in close proximity to different amenities in Montecito's clubhouse (i.e. swimming pool, Village Kitchen, wellness facilities, etc.). There are also lots located near the Montecito Chapel, which are for residents who would like to be near facilities for prayer and meditation.
Tranche 4 of Montecito is the final tranche in the development. It consists of 32 lots with a size range of 745 sqm - 1,113 sqm. The Greenway lots in this tranche are unique in all of Montecito because the greenways are located in front of the lot. These greenways allow a wider and more scenic streetscape. Houses here will have a deeper setback from the road, and will thus be both more private and quieter. Residents will also be able to enjoy a longer driveway, which will give a more impressive home façade. The greenways in this tranche also connect to a bike trail that leads to the Pasa Tiempo grounds.
Enjoy living by a lake. At Montecito, the lakes do more than adorn the property. They irrigate the landscape and nourish the lush greenery, true to NUVALI's vision of a fully-sustainable community. The lakes are fed by the Matang Tubig, an artesian spring that comes from the ridges of Tagaytay. The spring also powers a mini-hydroelectric generator within the community, which provides enough electricity to light the main streets.
Living in Montecito, residents also benefit from the development's own water reservoir and deep wells.
When it's time to mix, mingle and entertain, guests are welcome at the Pasa Tiempo pavilion. Originally built as a grand home for the Yulo family, it was designed by national artist architect Leandro Locsin for the Yulo family. Here, a swimming pool, library, game rooms, function areas, an activity center and spa features will soon be available for residents to enjoy.
A chapel will be built within the community by 2010, allowing for peaceful moments of reflection.
Unique to Montecito are the grass courtyards or greenways that wind between most lots. With widths that range from 10 to 30 meters, the greenways provide both privacy and room for neighbors to connect. Intertwined with the rhythmic peaks and valleys of the terrain, these greenways allow light and fresh air to weave through the estate.
In a poetic tribute to the flora that wraps the landscape, a tree and plant nursery is maintained by the community. Known to have a positive effect physically and emotionally, the wide variety of plants are made available for residents to enjoy.
Soon, a bird sanctuary will be right next to Montecito, complementing the intrinsic tranquil-feel of the community.
