This project entails the historic preservation of a Mission Revival home by Harrison Design in collaboration with Griffin & Crane, located in downtown Santa Barbara, California. The backstory of this home dates back to 1895, part of the Crocker Row Houses, which is a series of five homes on Garden Street. It was one of the earliest planned residential developments in California.

With the guidance of the original blueprints, the project team worked to restore this 120-year-old dwelling to reflect its original design. This process included extensive research, rebuilding the sandstone foundation and installing a tile roof. From there, period features —from fireplace mantels and staircase were refurbished.

What We Love: This Mission Revival home offers its inhabitants a newly restored home that celebrates the old while bringing in the new. We are loving all of the restored elements throughout this home, adding a feeling of warmth and visual appeal. The project team did a fabulous job of preserving an historic home that can be enjoyed by this family for many more years to come.
