Santa Barbara Spanish Revival Home

The transformation of a small tract house in Santa Barbara into this beautiful Spanish home (shown here) is highlighted on pages 22 - 25 of Jeff Doubet's new coffee table book, a "Consultation in a Book"


The homeowner sought ways to improve a 1960's tract home.


2 piece Mission Tile roof, a Spanish entry tower and custom arched entry, thick plaster cornice eave detailing and classic Santa Barbara sandstone garden walls were some of my suggestions.






This Small Montecito Spanish Home won a National design award in 2017.

In my book Creating Spanish Style Homes: Before & After - Techniques - Designs - Insights I share the original design rendering for the concept, as well as information on how this fixer upper became what it became.

Early on, the Investor Owner and his realtor sought simple improvements to maximize the appeal of this Montecito Fixer. I specialize in designing small Spanish Colonial Revival homes and Spanish Garden landscapes.
