Lori Bowles and Dana Zertuche, affiliate agents with the Montecito office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, have listed the property for $4,950,000. Located at 115 Miramar Ave. in Montecito, Calif., the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom, two-partial-bathroom and approximately 5,206-square-foot home was originally built in 1914.
“Located in Montecito's famed Hedgerow neighborhood, this traditional craftsman-style home is exquisitely renovated and well-appointed,” said Bowles. “This extraordinary property is situated near Miramar Beach, Upper, Lower Villages, Montecito Union School and local private schools.”
In 1914, Edward and Mary Paramore lived in this house and stayed there for approximately 10 years before moving to another house in Montecito, but the Paramore family continued to own the house. Ted Paramore, the son of Edward and Mary Paramore, moved to Hollywood in the late 1920s to work as a scriptwriter and kept the house as his second home as late as 1930.
“There is no documentation as to who designed the Paramore house, but it is possible that it is the work of the architect and developer William Augustus Whittlesey (W.A.W.) Brownell,” said Zertuche. “Brownell was responsible for developing much of the Miramar Addition tract as in the case of the Paramore house, designed in the Craftsman style.”
On a gated approximately 0.90-acre lot, the home encompasses a study, office, gym, living room with a fireplace, family room with a fireplace, formal dining room and laundry room. Open to a dining area with a fireplace, the kitchen features stainless steel appliances, an island and breakfast bar. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a fireplace and sitting area. The grounds include outdoor dining terraces and verandas, a pool, two bedroom guest quarters, mature specimen trees, sunny gardens and tack room with a loft.
