Actor Jeff Bridges Lists His Spanish Colonial Revival Abode For $8M

By Kathryn M.
“The Big Lebowski” actor is parting ways with his 100-year-old home designed by famed architect James Osborn Craig.

Jeff Bridges, the Academy Award-winning actor best known for his roles in The Last Picture Show, The Big Lebowski, and Crazy Heart, is selling his estate in Montecito, California. The single-story main residence was originally built in 1919 by architect James Osborn Craig, whom many historians credit with influencing the Spanish Colonial Revival style found throughout Santa Barbara architecture today. 

The home’s Spanish Colonial Revival style is recognizable by the smooth stucco exterior, clay tiled roof, and other natural ornaments.

With three bedrooms and two-and-a-half-baths, the home was extensively remodeled in 2016, but retains many original features. The four-acre property sits at the end of a private driveway, and also offers fruit trees, a detached garage, and a large horse stable.

The Spanish style continues inside with wood-beamed, vaulted ceilings.

A second living area offers large picture windows as well as a corner fireplace.

The newly remodeled kitchen features skylights and warm wooden cabinetry to complement the home's original style.

A formal dining room overlooks a lush backyard garden.

The master suite is finished in the same style of the rest of the home, and also offers a fireplace, along with French doors that lead to the back patio. 

The modern master bathroom departs from the Spanish style to accommodate a large shower and soaking tub.

The brick patio provides a magical setting for outdoor dinners and entertaining.

A pool and jacuzzi invite guests for a dip.

The large property also includes several detached structures, including a horse stable.

1690 San Leandro Lane in Montecito, California is currently listed for $7,995,000 by Sally Hanseth of Coldwell Banker.
