When it comes to Santa Barbara Real Estate, or any luxury real estate, Villa De La Guerra stands out as a rare combination of legacy, glamour and artistic perfection. And while perfection is not inexpensive, it IS priceless! To the antique car collector, it is the difference between a nice restoration, and a 100-point show car. To the wine connoisseur, it is the difference between a really good bottle, and that rare, once-in-a-lifetime vintage. To an art collector, it is the difference between a really nice piece, and a master. For those who appreciate priceless, there is Villa De La Guerra.
One of the most historic homes in Santa Barbara, Villa De La Guerra is located on what is arguably the most prestigious street in Santa Barbara, one block away from the Santa Barbara Mission. It commands Santa Barbaras prestigious Upper East Side as the Jewel in the Crown of in-town locations. The luxury estate, represented exclusively by Paul Hurst and Ashley Anderson of Prudential California Realty in Montecito, was built for Francisca de la Guerra Dibblee in 1910 by the famous architect Francis Townsend Underhill, forecasted the glamour of 1920s and 30s Hollywood.
No expense was spared in the recent five-year, $4 million plus full restoration project that completely refurbished the original Santa Barbara historic home, and added state of the art amenities for a seamless luxury lifestyle.
The Santa Barbara luxury estate has been professionally designed, furnished, and immaculately detailed by an award-winning interior designer. Abundant natural light pours in through large French doors, while spacious rooms boast high ceilings, and extraordinary open-air outdoor areas, including a secure courtyard entry and an expansive backyard with landscaped pool and fountain areas, create the ultimate setting for enjoying the sought-after indoor-outdoor lifestyle Santa Barbara is known for.
