Description
The Bliss house was one of Winslow's largest private commissions. The 80 room mansion for William and Anna Dorinda Bliss, at the corner of Olive Mill and Hot Springs Roads in Montecito, was to be their summer residence. The 45 acre estate, named Casa Dorinda, contained the main house, servant's quarters, garages, various outbuildings, and extensive gardens. The Bliss' were quite wealthy and they hosted many large parties, including for European royalty. After Anna Bliss died in 1935, her daughter inherited the property and allowed the Navy to use it as a hospital during World War Two. It subsequently became a boarding school, then in the 1970s, a retirement communnity.
