A rare & extraordinary piece of Art & Antiquity, Far Afield is one of two significant historic estates remaining in the prime Montecito ''Golden Quadrangle'' commanding apx 10.5 acres. Designed by legendary Santa Barbara Architect Francis T. Underhill. This gorgeous Mediterranean Villa Estate & gardens was inspired by his other noted masterpieces. At enormous expense and time, a 15-year restoration project completed in 2015 delivers art & architecture thoughtfully finished with hand crafted custom details using 17th & 18th century reclaimed building materials curated throughout Europe. Each of the parquet floor patterns were custom built on site with hand cut French Oak, imported from historic Chateaus. A curated collection of Dutch, Italian and Spa tiles
