Combining early 20th century charm and class with 21st century conveniences, Montecito's Somerset estate represents the epitome of relaxed sophistication. The home and its ancillary structures lie in the community's elite ''Golden Quadrangle''. Henrik Westen, former owner of the estate, ordered several alterations and additions designed by iconic architect Lutah Maria Riggs. Much of the landscaping of the approximately 1.55-acre grounds is believed to be attributed to prominent landscape architect Lockwood de Forest. Ultimate privacy, lush and well-manicured foliage, numerous outdoor amenities: the ambiance here is distinctly Montecito. Entering the main residence, one finds oneself in a gracious foyer complemented by a stately staircase leading to the second-floor master suite.
