Montecito – A four-acre Tudor-style estate nestled at the end of a private drive. As the guesthouse, pool and cabana were added the surrounding landscape is comprised almost entirely of native plants in a Westernized rendition of the English classical garden style. Sustainable practices integrated beautifully into the design with swales to treat all storm water and the boulder creek bed was recovered from years of overgrowth.
The fireplace and steel pergola were added to the main house and we continued the trend of brick hardscapes that transitioned to stone in the second phase. Over the years we have moved the landscape away from traditional lawns and have one of the most successful meadows of California native Field Sedge located in the dappled light of the Oak trees.
