The VanSicklen Residence

This secluded one acre residence in the heart of Montecito began as a small remodel. The entire front portion was stripped bare and a new English Garden  emerged. New brick walls provide privacy and the walkway proceeds through a formal boxwood edged parterre filled with Iceberg Roses. A fountain adds trickling sound as one enters the space. Toward the edge of the property, there is a long perennial border profusely planted with flowering plants, grasses and edible shrubs and trees. As one looks from the residence, one sees the garden and the majestic Los Padres Mountains beyond.
