California Faucets



A faucet designed to flow with Edwardian elegance

August 25, 2008 | Product Release

MONTECITO - Release Photo(Huntington Beach, CA, August 25, 2008) The new MONTECITO faucet was aptly named after its inspiration, the extraordinarily wealthy California community of Montecito in prestigious Santa Barbara County. Its distinctive European flair is reminiscent of the elegant Edwardian-style estates in Montecito that are home to many celebrities and dignitaries.

MONTECITO’s English styling is modeled after period design when more cheerful Edwardian replaced Victorian style. The solid brass faucet is stylishly commanding with a substantial spout enhanced by a bell-shaped base and spherical head. Water is delivered luxuriously through angle and curve at a natural and comfortable height. The hexagonal faceted escutcheons beautifully display cross handles crowned with white porcelain index buttons.

As with all standard California Faucets designs, flexibility is another virtue of the MONTECITO faucet. Mixing and matching with other faucet series can bring an entirely new dimension to the design. Making this easy is the Virtual Faucet Creator™, the new online tool from California Faucets that allows you to create a customized design with just a few clicks. Mix and match any spout with any handle in any finish. Then personalize your creation with your name and email it or print it out and take it to a California Faucets Select Dealer showroom to purchase.

List price for the 8' widespread MONTECITO with cross handles in Polished Chrome finish is $589. In a Special Finish, such as the Satin Nickel pictured, list is $795. Premium Finishes, including Mocha Bronze (PVD) and 24-karat gold, are $942.
