El Cuadrante, designed by famed architect Joseph Plunkett, set in Montecito’s Hedgerow District, has it all: Renowned architecture; today’s floor plan with five bedroom suites; grounds for family entertaining with a pool and numerous terraces; and proximity to MUS, the Upper and Coast Villages. Reflecting all the grace and charm of old Montecito, this historic estate has been the home to the same family for over 30 years. Completed in 1921, the home includes five bedrooms, 3 fireplaces, and chauffeur's quarters. The grounds include a pool, covered patio and lush gardens with a huge lawn for games and parties. Garages for 3 cars and a separate owner's motor court completes the package that awaits your upgrades to modern mechanicals.
The 1.3-acres of private grounds offers a wonderful combination of formal elements along with very family-oriented spaces with room for lawn games and entertaining. Located within the charming and sought after Hedgerow neighborhood of Montecito, the home was once one of only three structures located on the original 28-acre Spaulding estate and is in easy walking distance to the Montecito Union School, the Upper Montecito Village, Coast Village and Miramar Beach.
This private setting speaks to the historic period that was Montecito of the 1920's. The public rooms of El Cuadrante offer a unique Californian version of formality with a large living room with extensive windows opening to the charming, mature gardens on the property; a restful, contemplative den or library with French doors to a patio and the formal gardens and an inviting dining room with walls of glass and French doors opening to the formal gardens. Each of these light and bright rooms includes a fireplace.
