Santa Barbara G W S Estate w/ocean view & pool within 3 miles to Beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 21, 2014
Historic Santa Barbara 5 Bedroom Stunning Ocean Views with Pool and Spa

This original 1920s George Washington Smith (GWS) estate was built for Mr. Irving Wright in 1921 and has beautiful ocean and city views of Santa Barbara. GWS is considered the finest architect of his time practicing in the Spanish Colonial Revival Style and has come to be known as the Father of Santa Barbara style. This home is famously published and is one of a handful of GWS estates still in original condition. Located in the heart of the world famous Santa Barbara Riviera, it is minutes to the City and beach yet has country side privacy and ambiance. It has retained the original beauty and charm that makes GWS homes the most recognized and architecturally appreciated homes in Santa Barbara. With stunning ocean views, pool, spa, BBQ, and original outdoor stone courtyard dining area, this home will make for a memorable family experience. The completely remodeled chef’s kitchen with ocean views has it all from large Viking oven and refrigerator to custom cabinets and stone counter tops, to the hand painted tile throughout. The house has been lovingly restored to its original elegance and offers 5 bedrooms: 3 king,2 queen and a bonus twin room in an accompanying room off the master. It offers 3 full baths and 1 half bath. The large living room with soaring wood beam ceiling and fireplace has commanding ocean views and walks out onto the outdoor entertainment area with pool and spa. The large dining room with table for 10 guests is a perfect place to host a family dinner with sparking views of the Santa Barbara coast. There is a bedroom off the living room with a desk to work or enjoy a quiet place to watch the flat screen TV. The home is nearly 5,000 sq ft and sits on nearly 2 prime acres in the heart of Santa Barbara.

WE DO NOT HOST EVENTS.

Also please note that THERE IS NO GATE DIRECTLY BETWEEN THE HOUSE AND THE POOL, consistent with the pictures of the website. If this raises a safety concern, this house is not appropriate and please do not inquire.

Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5
Exceeded all our expectations! Perfect for a family/friend reunion or special occasion. Convenient location to downtown, beaches, hiking and biking. Amazing sunsets enjoyed by the pool/spa. Had every amenity, and many special touches. Owners were thoughtful and responsive to every request. We all felt very priviledged to stay at this historic home and would definitely recommend it all.
