Curb Your Enthusiasm co-creator and star Larry David is bidding adieu to his French Normandy-inspired cottage in Montecito according to the Robb Report. Listed for US $7.5 million, the house was designed by architect George Washington Smith, the Father of Spanish Colonial Revival-style architecture.
The 2,900-square-foot home has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Located in the heart of Montecito’s Hedgerow neighborhood, this 1929 French Normandy-style home has lush gardens, and inside, it’s full of Euro charm.
A striking open-beam ceiling and stone fireplace sets a casual tone in the living room.
A patterned tile backsplash, olive cabinets, and marble countertops give the kitchen its old school, heritage vibe.
The butler’s pantry is accessed by a rustic wood door and inside it’s lined with fog gray painted cabinets.
A gallery wall of portraits enlivens an intimate dining room. Thick damask drapes and stucco walls reflect the Normandy-style architecture.
A view from the dining room to the living room is framed by dark wood timbers.
More thematic animal portraits are a lighthearted note in this cozy den.
The principal bedroom has a lofty ceiling and with an arched doorway to the ensuite.
The principal ensuite has a chrome soaker tub with lion’s paw feet. Delicately patterned wallpaper and floral-patterned curtains instill a country feel.
Wisteria vines clamber over the back of the house: a chest is painted with quatrefoil motif.
An outdoor lounge area is grouped around a brick firepit in the courtyard.
Among the garden’s most whimsical moments is the metal tea house.
The one-fifth-acre property includes brick terraces and pathways, a built-in potting bench, and numerous citrus trees.
