About 165 La Vereda Road

El Cedro, designed by famed architect Joseph Plunkett, set in Montecito's Hedgerow District, has it all: Renowned architecture; today's floor plan with four suites each with bath and fireplace; grounds for family entertaining; and proximity to MUS, the Upper and Coast Villages. Reflecting all the grace and charm of old Montecito, this historic residence has been the home to the same family since the 1970's. Completed in 1921, the home includes five bedrooms, six fireplaces, and staff quarters. The grounds include a patio and lush gardens with a huge lawn for games and parties. An oversized 3-car garage with workshop completes the package that awaits your upgrades to modern mechanicals. The estate's name "El Cedro" commemorates the numerous cedar trees and redwoods guarding the entrance and perimeter. The full acre of usable grounds offers a wonderful combination of formal elements along with very family-oriented spaces with room for lawn games and entertaining. This expansive space would also accommodate the addition of a swimming pool with plenty of room for a spacious pool deck and potential pool house. Located within the charming and sought after Hedgerow neighborhood of Montecito, the home was once one of only three structures located on the original 28-acre Spaulding estate and is in easy walking distance to the Montecito Union School, the Upper Montecito Village, Coast Village and Miramar Beach. Well removed from busy traffic areas, this quiet and private setting speaks to the historic period that was Montecito of the 1920's. The public rooms of El Cedro offer a unique Californian version of formality with a large living room with extensive windows opening to the charming, mature gardens on the property; a restful, contemplative den or library with French doors to a side patio and the formal gardens and an inviting dining room with a wall of glass and French doors opening to the rear formal gardens. Each of these light and bright rooms includes a fireplace.
