Designed for a family with young children relocating to Montecito, this 8,000 square foot house embodies the traditional Mediterranean architectural influences of Southern California. Set on 3 ½-acres, the house takes advantage of the mild climate with multiple outdoor terraces and trellis-covered porches, ideal for casual entertaining and dining al fresco. A separate pool house was also designed with the homeowners’ relaxed lifestyle in mind.

The lush landscape plan by Miranda Brooks, shelters the lot from the street, creating a sense of seclusion and privacy on the property.
