Montecito Estate 1
Project Components: Main House with day-lit Basement, Garage, Guest House and Exercise Hut. Total area: 11,391 square feet.
Site: A 2.3 acre hillside property with expansive views of adjacent mountains and valley, opening to the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands.

The Design: The Residence was designed to be a simple but regal pavilion sitting harmoniously atop a gentle hill with a green meadow skirt flowing out below it. Adaptive reuse was made of an existing guest house and garden storage structure to minimize disturbance to the land and its mature vegetation. The project also avoided intrusion into an environmentally sensitive riparian habitat straddling an edge of the property.

The Owners enjoy the tranquility of their valley and ocean-facing loggia by lunching there as often as they can.
