Montecito Union School District
Best known for his residential work, Alex D’Alfonso's design and contracting business was active from 1921 to 1978.
Born in L’Aquila, Italy, D’Alfonso moved to Santa Barbara in 1915 and began work as a carpenter at the Flying A Studios. In 1921, he began designing and building houses, as well as some commercial buildings; he drew up the plans, generally in the Mediterranean style, like 1126 Oriole Road.
Some of this residential work includes a tract of land on the lower Riviera above Ortega and De La Guerra Street, he built over thirty houses in the Mediterranean style, laying out the roads and building the sandstone retaining walls. This development, along Diana Lane and Diana Road, remains intact and serves as an excellent example of house siting and design.
Much of his timeless work still remains today around the charming streets of Montecito and Santa Barbara.
