A Montecito Masterpiece


Sitting on a unique 2.9-acre promontory offering a rare 360-degree bird's eye view out to the Pacific Ocean and along the Santa Barbara coastline, harbor and Santa Ynez mountains.

The Mediterranean island of Mallorca and the charm of early 1920’s architecture served as inspiration and the resulting product is a work of art, punctuated by architectural intricacies at every turn; from Moorish arches to carved sculptures and colorful accents bringing animation to each space.  


The grounds are graced with courtyards, patios, water features, a rose garden, paths and thoughtful garden spaces. 


The living room and kitchen seamlessly flow to the large outdoor patio, the pool and outdoor kitchen on one side and a peaceful courtyard artfully lined with stones and colorful tiles on the other side.



Luxurious display of international influences coupled

with a storied history 

The ocean-view master suite is on the upper level, with a meditation room and two separate bathrooms and closets.  


Punctuated by architectural intricacies at

every turn.

296 Las Entradas Dr_WEB_01.jpg


"Architecture is art." 

- Thomas Bollay

The residence was designed by the highly acclaimed architect, Thomas Bollay, known for his innovative designs based on historical references and meticulous restoration of landmark buildings. 


Committed to quality design and preserving the essence of early twentieth-century revival architecture - much of Bollay’s success is attributed to his close study of revivalist buildings and their original sketches and drawings, as well as through his European travels. Practicing traditional architecture for over three decades in Santa Barbara, Bollay has revived many significant local buildings such as the 1927 Biltmore Hotel, Santa Barbara, and the Music Academy of the West “Mira Flores” main house, Montecito.


Even with over 37 years of architecture experience, 296 Las Entradas Drive is one of Bollay's favorite projects. His affection for the estate exceeds the architectural design, he says it is simply "the way it compliments the site, the way it compliments the views, the way the house live is just wonderful, it is just delightful."
