About 221 E Constance Ave

Perched on over two acres and just minutes from downtown, Taynayan is a Spanish Colonial Revival style home located in Santa Barbara's highly desirable upper East. In 1924 W. Maybury Somervell designed the home for Louis Dreyfus Sr., with privacy and luxury in mind. The multi massing of volumes, varying rooflines and exquisite spaces have led some to compare it to an entire Spanish village. The fine craftsmanship and detail found in the living and dining rooms include meticulous wood-carved panels featuring turbot shell inlay and beautiful coffered ceilings. Stately fireplaces are also found in these two rooms and there are two more fireplaces in the formal French receiving room and the spacious master suite. A glass-topped central courtyard ties together the main public areas of the home. Among the numerous striking visual impacts is the use of glazed colorful tiles from Seville, Spain on the walls of the main staircase that depict portions of the story of Don Quixote.
