Montecito estate description
This rare classical 5 bedroom, 4 bath 1920’s George Washington Smith designed Spanish Colonial has been perfectly restored and preserved, in an ideal location between the upper and lower villages of Montecito, near the prestigious Montecito Country Club and Golf Course and within 1.5 miles to the beach and 3 miles to Downtown Santa Barbara.
Gated privacy, colorful roses, sages, mature trees, lush rolling front lawn, a stately facade and scenic views form a welcoming impression.
The loving and careful restoration has retained all of the characteristics that make the home a superior representation of the architect’s vision. Original red oak hardwood floors, wrought iron balustrades and rails can be found throughout; numerous glass-paned doors and windows, trimmed on the exterior with “Santa Barbara Blue”, allow garden scenery and soft natural light to fill interiors. Extensive use of period hardware, tasteful, colorful tile designs, bath and light fixtures appear in all areas of the home.
On the main floor is the large updated kitchen which one can entertain family and guests with its new appliances including Viking range with six burners and two ovens and a wine refrigerator; sculpted hood, soft gray veined white marble countertops, farm house sink, ample storage, hand-wrought beams in the ceiling and stunning period tile backsplashes complete the decor. There is room for informal dining and several cooks can roam and prepare meals together.
The living room with inset library shelves and original French mantel is spacious and light-filled and offers a gas fireplace and baby grand piano.
A large formal dining room seamlessly opens through glass-paned doors to a front terrace with its 180-degree view of the emerald green lawn and majestic Moreton Bay Fig Tree.
On the ground floor is also a guest bedroom with an en suite bath; office and laundry room round out the ground floor.
A staircase in the grand foyer, as well as the stairwell near the kitchen with its bright hand painted tiles, lead to the second floor with its unique sleeping porch or entertainment patio; tiled in terra cotta, it offers garden views over the wall and captures Santa Barbara’s mild ocean breezes.
The second floor offers an adjoining sitting room, two master suites and two bedrooms for family and friends to share. The dual master suite offers a king in one room with fireplace and the second master suite offers a queen bed, each with inspiring views of the grounds and surrounding area.
Its two bathrooms, one with a spacious dressing area have been updated with modern amenities, yet retain some of the spirit of the original design.
The additional 2 bedrooms offer 2 twin beds in one and a full bed in the other with a shared bath.
We welcome you to come and enjoy our new and historical estate.
