Perfection is not inexpensive...it's priceless! To the antique car collector, it's the difference between a nice restoration, and a 100-point show car. To the wine connoisseur, it's the difference between a really good bottle, and that rare, once-in-a-lifetime vintage. To an art collector, it's the difference between a really nice piece, and a master. For those who appreciate priceless, there is Villa De La Guerra, a rare combination of legacy, glamour, and artistic perfection.
One of the most important historic homes in Santa Barbara, Villa De La Guerra is located on what is arguably the most prestigious street in Santa Barbara, one block away from the Santa Barbara Mission. It commands the prestigious Upper East Side as the Jewel in the Crown of in-town locations.
The luxury estate, built for Francisca de la Guerra Dibblee in 1910 by the famous architect Francis Townsend Underhill, forecasted the glamour of 1920s and 30s Hollywood.
No expense was spared in the recent five-year, $4 million plus full restoration project that completely refurbished the original historic structure, and added state of the art amenities for a seamless luxury lifestyle.
Abundant natural light pours in through large French doors, while spacious rooms boast high ceilings, and extraordinary open-air settings, including a secure courtyard entry and an expansive backyard with landscaped pool and fountain areas, create the ultimate setting for enjoying the sought-after indoor-outdoor lifestyle Santa Barbara is known for.
The estate has been professionally designed, furnished, and immaculately detailed by an award-winning interior designer. All the inside and outside spaces are ideal for entertaining on a grand or intimate scale.
Villa De La Guerra is not on the Multiple Listing Service, and is being offered with Value Range Marketing (VRM) pricing, which means that the seller will RESPOND to offers between $6,750,000 and $7,695,876. In other words, if you submit an offer in this range, you will get a response from the seller: either an acceptance, or a counter offer. The purpose of this is to set the expectation of negotiations up front. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.
