In 1926, as his exquisite Santa Barbara Biltmore hotel was nearing completion, acclaimed California architect Reginald D. Johnson designed an estate on Brentwood Park’s Rockingham Rim. Today, the magnificent Spanish Colonial he created, set on 1.28 secluded acres, has come on the market for the first time in fifty years. Behind gates, lies a park-like setting with amazing mature landscaping. Inside, everything opens to nature. The step-down living room and library open onto an exquisite inner courtyard. An enchanting garden view is the centerpiece in the formal dining room. Three fireplaces enhance the residence. Downstairs there is a guest bedroom with bath and two maid’s quarters with a shared bath. A dramatic grand staircase leads to four bedrooms and three baths where windows overlook exquisite gardens and vistas to the ocean beyond. Outside, three garages are flanked by a chauffeur’s quarters and a potting room. A graceful free-form pool with a pool house provides an oasis.
