Via Los Padres Residence

AB design studio, inc. as Architects

Located amongst the scenic foothills of Santa Barbara, this residential property is located on the edge of a large undeveloped tract of land and enjoys a terrific view of the Santa Ynez Mountain Range beyond. The existing residence on the property was constructed in the late 1970's in a typical California Ranch style. California's coastal real-estate values and a demand for developable land in Santa Barbara have dramatically increased over the past few decades. Many of the homes built on these prime properties years ago no longer retain or represent the current value of the land they now sit on. The current value of this particular property was no exception. The humble house built over 30 years ago was dated and it was beginning to show its age. At the onset of the project, the owners of the property asked us to transform their existing residence into a home that would be worthy of this valuable and beautiful property. They wanted to upgrade the architecture of the house and improve the site and landscaping. The solution is a newly remodeled modern home with distinctive architectural features, a new free-standing pool cabana building and a grand swimming pool. The existing landscaping has been removed and will be replaced with a new design that will add to the new life of this property. Photography: © Dana Miller Photography
