On this property, there are 2 buildings – our home, which is the cottage you see in the photo to the left, and a duplex in which there are 2 luxury townhouses.
The cottage is a charming 150-year-old Queen Anne Victorian, one of Santa Barbara’s oldest Victorians. It was built in the mid-1800’s. We restored it in 1998.
In 2001 we built the duplex in the same style as the cottage. To create a welcoming entrance, we built a tower, complete with “witches cap”, above the portico.
Each townhouse is tastefully furnished with an eclectic mix of family heirlooms and new craftsman style furniture. Features include hand-inlaid wood floors, a bay window/window seat, and a fireplace in the living room. Both units have decks.
To enter the building, you pass through a pair of glass French doors from the portico into the entrance foyer. You walk down a short hallway to a 1/2 flight of stairs. At the top of the stairs, you can turn left to the “A” Unit or right to the “B” Unit.
