Property Description

Miss Margaret Turner designed and built this magnificent home as a replica of her childhood home in Montecito, California. Margaret was a horticulturalist and antique collector, leaving some irreplaceable remnants of her talent that still grace the home, such as valuable cycad plants, antique hallway mirror, leaded glass entry windows, crystal dining room chandelier, European marble fireplaces, and porcelain fireplace in kitchen. It is sited on a 2-acre parcel overlooking a working horse ranch, where you can watch the ponies gallop from the upstairs terrace or from the expansive wrap-around veranda with porch swing, all on Capra Ranch, once owned by Frank Capra, frequently referred to as the greatest filmmaker of all time for It’s a Wonderful Life and other cinematic masterpieces. This home is often mistaken for a historically designated time capsule, yet it was completed in 1985 and offers all the grandeur and features of a turn of the century estate. Featuring a Grand Entrance with a sweeping staircase, a Grand Dining Room w/ crystal chandelier, a conservatory (greenhouse), a breakfast sunroom, a massive Great Room, a Library, Sewing Room/Office/Laundry, and even a butler’s pantry for the caterers. The aluminum roof was replaced in July 2020, at which time the exterior wood was renewed and professionally painted. These photos are from 2019 due to limited access at this time drone photos do not adequately represent the transformed exterior of this home.
