Built in 1905 by artist Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead, this iconic Mission-style residence on the original 70-acre Arcady estate was later purchased and further developed, in 1911, by Union Carbide Founder, CEO, President and Board Chair George Owen Knapp. Knapp subsequently expanded the estate to 148 acres. The home, commanding a premier hilltop location situated off a private road, is a singular property providing utmost privacy and incredible scale. Its timeless designer details include soaring ceilings, rich woods and notable architectural elements throughout.

Embraced by gorgeous ocean and mountain views, the 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath Mission-style residence and detached 1-bedroom, 1 bath guest house were thoughtfully designed with indoor-outdoor living in mind, and to take full advantage of the expansive grounds and impressive views. There are multiple venues for al fresco dining and entertaining, vibrant gardens and a sparkling pool. The grounds are flanked by mature landscaping, adding to the estate’s sense of security and tranquility.

Located convenient to Montecito’s Lower Village, world-class beaches, hiking and more, this phenomenal property provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an iconic piece of Montecito history.
