    Meh. I wouldn’t build a Tudor in Santa Barbara…weather’s too sunny for a Tudor. The interior lacks charm or character, something I thought was necessary in thi style home.

      There are a LOT of Tudor style houses in Santa Barbara, and it somehow works. A new-build Tudor doesn’t stand out as unusual at all.

    I looked at the first pic and thought “I like how that looks”. Then I saw the second picture, with the row of garage doors, and was instantly disappointed. There had to be a better way to situate the garage doors than facing the front the house, especially with all that land available. Other than that, I like the facade.

    As for the interior, I like it a lot too. With the right decor it could be a very nice house. The spaces look interesting and proportionally “right” to me. I would get rid of kitschy tiles in the kitchen and master bedroom, but the interior has tons of possibility.

    This is a clear example of how you can make great style in cheap kitsch.
    Tudor in Santa Barbara? Fuck … Kitsch Tudor in Santa Barbara? Double fuck!

    I like this quite a bit. Like Grrrowler, I was very disappointed to see the front-facing garage doors…with 4 acres of land to work with, that’s inexcusable to me from a style standpoint. Although I was not aware that Tudors are common in Santa Barbara, I still see this as a fresh look for the California market, based on how many Mediterraneans (or wannabe Mediterraneans) I see from this area.

    Inside has plenty of potential, and I think that the charm and character that Daniel notices as lacking here has a good chance of being provided if the decorating is done right. This is one of many homes that I see on this site that I would be overwhelmingly curious to see pics of AFTER the decorators do their work on it. As it is right now, this is a fabulous starting point, minus the design faux pas that is the garage.

    Like Daniel said, a Tudor in California just seems wrong. On top of that, this is a really ugly Tudor to boot.
    When I was younger I used to love Tudors, but I have since fallen out of love with them.
