EXPERIENCE CLASSIC CALIFORNIA IN THESE STUNNING, TIMELESS ESTATES.
EL CIELITO WAS BUILT IN 1920 BY LEGENDARY ARCHITECT GEORGE WASHINGTON SMITH.
In fact, this property is one of Smith's earliest commissions. Smith is known for his work in Santa Barbara and for popularizing Spanish Colonial Revival style in the early 20th century. He is even credited as the "father" of Spanish Colonial Revival style in the United States.
In his time, Smith was one of the most popular architects, appearing in leading architecture and design magazines. Smith's legacy is inseparable from Montecito's rich architectural history as his influential, refined style has come to define the essence of the city itself.
El Cielito embodies the Spanish Revival style with an array of vintage Spanish, Portuguese and Syrian tile floors, a brick terrace and Venetian plaster walls.
The property also features a 100-year old Moreton Bay Fig tree.
THIS SOUGHT AFTER ESTATE, BLESSED WITH AN ENVIABLE GEORGE WASHINGTON SMITH DESIGN AND A PRIVILEGED LOCATION, HAS THE ULTIMATE MONTECITO PEDIGREE.
