Storied Estate: Classic Italian Villa

For this month’s blog, we’re looking back on one of our most memorable projects. This two-story Montecito villa covers 5,700 square feet with three bedrooms, three baths, five fireplaces, a wood-paneled library, a wine room, and the owners’ collection of paintings, artifacts, and classical statuary. 

Built on six steep acres, the three-year project overcame considerable site constraints thanks to intricately coordinated teamwork between the owners, site managers, and dozens of subcontractors. Along the way, it became a prime example of custom homebuilding at its finest. 

“Aside from the complexity of the site and the fact that we were challenged to build one of the most ornate homes of our careers, [we also] managed the clients’ expectations by providing great service and great communication . . . and delivering an excellent product in the end,” remembers company cofounder Geoff Crane. 

“The home itself is a beautiful statement and truly a testament to all of the talent available to us here in Santa Barbara.”
