We built this 12,000 sq/ft custom home in the style of 1920’s Spanish Revival, calling on blended Moorish and Mediterranean elements to create a distinct Santa Barbara Estate. Like many styles, Spanish Revival, done correctly, requires an exacting attention to detail throughout the construction process. The final result was a breathtaking collaboration between Newhaven and designer Lisa Pederson that led to a legacy quality, custom home.
A $4 Million project, the assignment was to deliver a home of the highest quality, dripping with high end details. Morracan lighting, austere wrought iron, intricate tile work, the owner had a real vision for how this property should feel. To deliver, required calling upon our experience with architectural styles and construction know how the project was asking for.
Olde World Technique
Newhaven took great pains to give this home an “Olde World” touch. Success meant new construction would have to be done using older techniques, such as: Hand extruded plaster molding, hand-hammered wrought iron and
textured paint finishes to match the Spanish Era. Staggered mission red roof tiles and heavy wood beams create additional elements that make the house feel like a long established residence.
Representing The Region
Using Santa Barbara Sandstone for the fireplace mantels and representing the tile designs and color schemes of the Santa Barbara County Courthouse, we blended the styles of the region within the home.
