Architect Lutah Marie Riggs, a pioneer in her profession, graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1919 and established a practice in Santa Barbara, Calif. Her career spanned several decades and her devotion to quality products resulted in numerous outstanding residential and commercial projects such as the Lockwood Cabin at Lake Arrowhead, Calif, the Vedanta Temple and expansion to the El Paseo historic complex both in Santa Barbara.
Built in 1951 with floor-to-ceiling walls of sliding glass, vaulted ceilings, Santa Barbara sandstone hearth & terrazzo flooring, an Eat-in chef’s kitchen. Rolling lawns, ornamental gardens & Japanese-inspired courtyards that provide privacy, this is undoubtedly one of The Hamilton Co’s favorite homes ever.
There is a separate studio suite & guesthouse. 3 bed 3.5 baths located in the heart of Montecito’s Golden Quadrangle on close to 3 flat gorgeous acres – every last bit of detail has been restored to perfection in this elegant Montecito Modern residence.
