                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Santa Barbara is a very special place for us. In 2006 while visiting this beautiful destination, we decided to spend the rest of our lives together and got engaged there. We live less than an hour away and come up to enjoy the 'American Rivera' as often as we can. Both our children (ages 22 & 9) also LOVE coming to Santa Barbara and enjoy the many activities that take place year round. We both agree: Santa Barbara is the place where we will eventually retire.

                      Why the Owner Chose DownTown:
                      We chose to purchase this cottage because it is so charming and we immediately fell in love with it. Year round, the weather is spectacular which allows for lots of outdoor activity. We LOVE to leave the car in the driveway and walk or bicycle around town and down to the beach. We also enjoy the many restaurants, bistros, bars, festivals and activities within walking/bicycling distance. Only 30 minutes away is the Santa Ynez Valley where we go sample delicious wines on a regular basis.
