Montecito Park is a special neighborhood. With its gently curving streets, classic residential architecture, and award winning schools, this has long been a sought after location. It was in 1940 that Mr. Richard Streeter ventured here from Beverly Hills to build this gorgeous traditional cottage. He accomplished a work of elegance and craftsmanship more common to a grand estate.
The beautiful details of the large formal living room display the character with which Mr. Streeter built this home: the hardwood flooring, the beamed ceiling, the original built-ins, the oversized diamond pane lead glass window, and the gorgeous wood burning fireplace. The formal dining room also has two built-in china displays and more wood details as well. The front bedroom has an intricate wood and ceiling detail around the oversized French window, while the second bedroom still has the original built-in chest of drawers and vanity.
The current Owners have tastefully upgraded the kitchen with granite counters, a new stainless oven, new lighting, and wood flooring. Off the kitchen is the large family room which has a raised ceiling, more built-ins, a fireplace, a cool computer alcove, and large windows overlooking the rear yard. Just a few additional features include: upgraded copper plumbing, an upgraded electrical panel, central air and heat, an updated full bath, a guest powder room, and a great back yard with a large entertaining area, flat grass play yard, fruit trees, vegetable garden, and a detached garage.
