Introducing for the first time in fifty years, a private residential masterpiece, The Erdman House (1958). Four knolltop acres. Midcentury Montecito. Sited to perfection. Lutah Maria Riggs, Architect. A stunning example of midcentury vernacular, Lutah Maria Riggs’ use of shakkei or borrowed scenery or landscape is evident in almost every room. The courtyard, once centered around the reflecting pool, looks to the rectangular swimming pool up to the mountains through stands of pine and eucalyptus trees. Gated and private, one is transported back to a simpler time where the enjoyment of the outdoors translated to refuge and peaceful living.
