In 1917 renowned Santa Barbara architect Francis T. Underhill was commissioned to design this gorgeous Mediterranean Villa Estate outdoing all his other masterpieces. Today, after a 15-year exhaustive restoration completed in 2017, Far Afield delivers art and 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 Spanish antique tiles are attentively integrated throughout the estate's interior and exterior. The Villa has an updated infrastructure including a structural & mechanical engineering overhaul rivaling most modern homes today. Additionally, introducing the newly renovated "Far Afield Gardens" including the original Bridal Path restoration connecting horticultural, botanical, native and formal parterre gardens across acres of fertile land featuring the historic statuary of Rose Farwell "The Lady" and Dionysus & The Folly. Stroll the Whimsical winding paths connecting to incredible natural orchards and groves such as the Citrus, Stone Fruit or skip through The Forrest Pansy, The Enchanted Garden, Oak Cathedral but be sure to visit the Ancient Totem and Grandfather Oak, all priceless natural artifacts incomparable and unparalleled by an other estate. Far Afield is a legacy estate for the ages with everything you would expect to compare with great iconic properties from around the world. Gated stately driveway approach introduces an unassuming, yet unbelievably awe-inspiring romantic Main Villa and Guest Residence with indelible charm and character. Truly a trophy legacy asset to be cherished by children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren for decades to come offered for the first time in over 20 years. A once in a lifetime opportunity with location, acreage, gardens, and pedigree architecture impossible to replicate today.
