Robert E. Easton Home


The Robert E. Easton Home is located at 915 South Speed Street.

Built about 1910, this six-bedroom, two-story Southern Colonial house was located at 730 South Broadway and moved to the present location by its then "new" owner, Dr. William Dan Sink, in about 1928. According to the book, Julia Morgan, Architect of Dreams by Ginger Wadsworth, Morgan, world famous architect for Hearst Castle, also designed this home. The sunroom and "maid's quarters" were added after the home was moved. Dr. Sink was a respected family practitioner in town and co-built the Santa Maria Clinic on the northeast corner of Vine and Chapel Streets. Take note of the full-grown California Redwood tree in the front yard -- unusual in this part of the state.
