Through grand gates where giant palms stand as silent sentinels is the magnificent Ranch San Carlos, a 237 acre estate proper ty
that for nearly 100 years has been under the ownership of one family. This extraordinary proper ty cascades down the foothills of
Montecito and offers panoramic vistas across the valley to the shimmering blue Pacific. A long, gently curving driveway over a half-
mile long is edged with Santa Barbara stone ascends through acres of citrus groves to the sprawling hilltop manor home designed
in 1931 by master architect Reginald Johnson for one of America’s most prestigious families. Johnson was the pre-eminent architect
of the era and continues to be celebrated for the many notable homes he designed in Pasadena and Montecito.

His spectacular Monterey Colonial of approximately 29,483 square feet is comprised of over thir ty rooms. From the vast motor
cour t one passes through the front door and into the grand entry hall where one is immediately transpor ted back in time to an
era of elegance and refinement; where men wore formal dress and women donned Parisian couture gowns to welcome dinner
guests to glittering soirees. The home is infused with an atmosphere of sophistication and refinement. The barrel vaulted central
gallery which connects the sumptuous public rooms to the upper bedroom wings is lined with hand-painted period murals and
windowed display cases. This grand hall sets a tone of luxury and attention to detail for which Johnson was so well known.

Reginald Johnson’s architectural ingenuity is no better showcased than in his brilliant use of the natural slope and contours of the
proper ty. He astutely sited the home on two natural terraces. By planning the formal living rooms around a central cour tyard and
placing the Master and family bedroom wings on the upper terrace he effectively created a spatial separation that afforded
privacy, calm and exceptional views.
