Famous Crocker Row Estate
4 Bed | 6 Ba | .5 Acre | Pool | Upper East
This is one of the most significant and beloved homes in Santa Barbara prominently positioned in the heart of the Upper East. This home offers move-in ready modern conveniences with the warmth and quality of a historical masterpiece. It was built for William H. Crocker, son of George Crocker – one of “The Big Four” that built the western leg of the first transcontinental railroad and founder of the Crocker Bank (later Wells Fargo). William Crocker commissioned the San Francisco architect Arthur Page Brown to design the five Crocker Row houses of which this is the largest house and property. Crocker lived in this home on his visits to Santa Barbara. Arthur Page Brown was also the architect of the Crocker’s Nob Hill Mansion and the Ferry Building.
This Upper East home is a timeless example of elegance, quality, and good taste. Distinguished by its signature full-length windows, this home has exceptional light, volume and excellent proportions. The home has been meticulously modernized with unerring attention to preservation of the significant details as well as move in ready amenities including radiant floor heating beneath beautiful wood floors, upgraded electrical, remodeled marble kitchen and baths, on demand hot water system, beautiful pool with new pool cabana, and a soon to be completed retrofitted foundation.
In addition to its rich historical background, this home is famous for the octogenarian bronze dog statue that acts as sentinel to the home. It is regularly costumed to celebrate the many Santa Barbara festivals and holidays and has become a beloved icon for the community.
