Today’s home in idyllic Santa Barbara, California was built in 1928 and is one of the original estate properties built when the resort area was starting to win prominence with the early West Coast elite.

The sophisticated French Normandy country manor is perfectly positioned for  ocean and island views on nearly 2 acres of lawns and garden.

The home’s bright and open floor plan offers generously sized rooms.

There are seven fireplaces situated throughout the home.

The home has been updated but the original lines created by the architectural firm Soule, Hastings, and Murphy survide to delight the eye with their harmonious attention to detail.

Multiple rooms open out to entertainment patios that provide tranquil ocean vides. The property also includes an apartment, a cottage, pool and spa, and two garages.

This legendary estate is listed for $7.995 million with Village Properties and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
