Carpinteria, CA 93013


3 BED/ 2 BATH • 1.08 ACRE • BUILT 1961


Nestled among majestic oaks sits this architecturally stunning mid-century modern home. This single level 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is well appointed on a completely flat, usable acre that provides all the ingredients of privacy and style while also offering the charms of life on a mini-farm.


Designed by esteemed local architect Don Benson in 1961, this house was one of his first designs before he went on to an esteemed career and created significant designs such as Vandenberg, Montecito & Carpinteria Fire Station, Carpinteria Middle School, and Carpinteria High School. After being lovely restored by its second owner to its former glory with attention to detail and maintaining its quintessential mid-century modern style, this house was featured in 2017 Carpinteria Beautiful Home Tour as well as 2017 Winter Issue of Carpinteria Magazine.


The floor to ceiling glass throughout the home and multiple outdoor living areas maximize a seamless transition to the indoor-outdoor living. Each room is abundant with natural light and views of Santa Cruz island or the mountains of the Los Padres National Forest. And with high ceilings and Italian wide oak flooring, the house offers a fresh and clean palette to create your own design oasis. 

The property is fenced with a motorized gate and offers a barn and several corrals, making it a perfect equestrian property for up to 2 horses. It also offers over 50 producing fruit trees, including lemon, lime, fig, guava, apricot, peach, orange, grapefruit, and of course, the World Famous Hass Avocados. Some of the outdoor amenities include a custom fire pit, Santa Maria style grill, private patio with hot tub, a children’s play set, outdoor lighting and beautiful landscaping, all of which guarantee the perfect setting for your next family gathering. There is also ample space to put in a pool, with a dramatic Los Padres Mountain peek as the backdrop.
