I moved to Montecito in the late 60's and was lucky enough to raise my boys in this beautiful town and now watch my grandchildren grow up right down the street from my home. When visiting my home you will quickly see my passion for orchids. My orchid life started as a pot washer for my husband's hundreds of orchids and I quickly became fascinated with the history of all of his complex paphiopedilum collection. His knowledge, love, and enthusiasm for orchids were contagious and soon we built a second greenhouse, and that was the moment that orchids became an important part of my life. I am currently the President of The American Orchid Society and editor in chief of the Orchid Digest. Besides the plants themselves and the never-ending opportunity to learn about them, I love being involved in the orchid world because it offers an opportunity to meet and work with so many amazing and fascinating people. When I am not traveling the world speaking about Orchids, I love spending time with my family and friends. My daughter in law is my house manager and she is the perfect person to answer any and all of your questions.
Adrian purchased this house in 2013
Why Adrian chose Montecito
I decided to build this guest home after discovering one of our two orchid green houses needed a lot of work. After much thought, I decided it would be the perfect place to build a guest home for travelers visiting Montecito and a beautiful representation of space that for many years was the home to orchids from around the world.
What makes this house unique
