Architectural Sales

One of the most significant oceanfront architectural estates designed by Wallace Neff, The Straus House, located in the coveted community of Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara — has been painstakingly restored, expanded, and modernized over a 10-year period and is now for sale.

Designed by Wallace in 1970, in collaboration with noteworthy landscape architecture Thomas Church, the home is situated on an oceanfront acre of land on the crest of a bluff where the blue sky meets the blues of the Pacific and wide-open panoramic views include clear sight of Channel Islands.

The current owner worked closely with the Historical Committee on all aspects of preserving the integrity of the design and inspiration of Neff’s work while simultaneously breaking the mold and creating an estate of unrivaled excitement, comfort, and effortless luxury indulgence.
