Nestled between mountains and ocean, this Montecito home was designed by Santa Barbara Architect Bob Easton. Multiple homeowners and years of drought had taken a toll on the gardens, and our clients sought to reimagine new spaces for their family and guests.
Hoerr Schaudt’s garden renovations began with a walled entry courtyard planted with mature sculptural olive trees and boxwood globes growing through gravel. Upon entering the home, a long hallway spans the length. Hoerr Schaudt took cues from the interior architectural beams and continued that cadence outdoors with an arbor and reflecting pool elongating the vista from inside. A water-thirsty lawn was removed and transformed into an entertaining space with bocce court, dining area, barbecue, and pizza oven. Finally, the ground plane of the entire 3 acre property was replanted with drought tolerant species, ensuring an enduring landscape for years to come.
Hoerr Schaudt’s design breathed new life into this home, and provided a myriad of curated settings from which to enjoy the magnificent views.
