It’s been almost 100 years since famous architect George Washington Smith, inspired the California movement called the Spanish Colonial revival. He was a man who dropped out of Harvard, but eventually became a successful businessman. He settled in the Santa Barbara region anticipating a relaxing lifestyle and planning to work on his painting interests. Smith was shocked that everyone loved the house he had designed and encouraged him to continue creating architectural masterpieces in the area. Smith used authentic materials from Spain and merged new and old world inspiration to create his structures. His works are sought out and enjoyed for their simple beauty and intricate design. Known as a founding father for Santa Barbara, other architects have mirrored his style for many generations. Santa Barbara Real Estate Developer, Kenny Slaught can appreciate the keen eye and attention to detail required to design the architectural works of art designed by Smith.
