Originally constructed in the 1920's this splendid example of Monterey Colonial style takes advantage of a beautiful wooded setting located in Santa Barbara's Mission Canyon. Exuding undeniable charm from one of California's most romantic periods in architecture, the inspiration for this house can be attributed to such local architects as George Washington Smith.
The four bedroom, three bath residence was carefully renovated inside and out in hopes to modernize this home's amenities without sacrificing its' classic style. The upgrades to the home included: new kitchen, remodeled baths, re-finished hardwood floors, interior/exterior paint and much more. The chef's kitchen has been designed with the entertainer in mind. Custom designed cabinetry topped with marble counters provides ample workspace with room for multiple chefs. The newer appliances include a Wolf range, second oven, and microwave as well as a Subzero refrigerator. True to its original era the kitchen still features a butler's pantry with plating station, access to the formal dining room and offers a wine refrigerator.
Serving as a perfect compliment to the craftsmanship of the home are its grounds. Originally designed by Santa Barbara Botanical Garden's acclaimed landscape architect Lockwood De Forrest, the grounds feature meandering decomposed granite paths, multiple specimens of trees and formal rose gardens.
This home represents an excellent opportunity to own a classic piece of Santa Barbara Architecture.
