SOLD: Perfect Showcase Home Within the Montecito Golden Quadrangle

I just found the perfect showcase home within the Montecito Golden Quadrangle for one of my discerning buyers. The family can now be counted among a small group of ‘Exclusive’ owners of a George Washington Smith (GWS) Collection of notable homes in the area.
Featured in Santa Barbara architectural books, lovingly restored and carefully updated to fit today’s current active lifestyle, “Casa Medio” or “The Canby House” welcomes a new owner. Built in 1928 and known as one of the GWS Period Homes, it is said to be inspired by the subtle and romantic design of whitewashed plastered facade with blue trim found during Smith’s travels through France.
Behind gates and onto the home’s new gravel courtyard, the 4 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath French farmhouse is over 5,000 sq. feet on an approximately 1.25-acre (2 parcel) site. The quality and charm and respect for ‘pure’ finishing and scale cannot be overstated, nor can the benefits of living within the Montecito Golden Quadrangle.
This is a George Washington Smith house, a historical landmark here in Santa Barbara County. George Washington Smith is a noted architect particularly for his work around Santa Barbara, and for popularizing the Spanish Colonial Revival style in early 20th Century America. The buyer fell in love with the architecturally significant home, relocating from the East Coast where they lived in a Mansion built at the direction of previous US President Thomas Jefferson, who also lived there. 
Montecito’s Golden Quadrangle is one of the most desirable places to live, considering it’s within close proximity to the famed San Ysidro Ranch, walking distance to a handful of gorgeous hiking trails, and is in one of the best school districts in all of California. There are a variety of restaurants that are perfect for a casual bite out, or a fancier date night with your significant other. Additionally, Manning Park is the perfect park to run around for a quick soccer game with the family, or a picnic with friends, and you’ll often see outdoor yoga classes taking place under the oak trees. Montecito offers a luxurious yet laid-back lifestyle and is an easy getaway from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, or any larger city for that matter.
Montecito is a destination for people all over the globe thanks to the gorgeous beaches, fine dining, and luxury shopping. Those lucky enough to live in the Golden Quadrangle benefit from way more than just the tasty food and chic attire Montecito has to offer. This area is home to one of the top elementary schools in California: Montecito Union.
