West Beach house description

Completely renovated in 2010 and newly furnished, this unique sun-lit unit is part of a historic triplex in the desirable West Beach area. Your doorway is just 1-1/2-blocks from the sands and volleyball courts on West Beach near Stearn’s Wharf, and easy walking distance to downtown State St. shops and restaurants. Also very close is the Amtrak station; no need for a car at all if arriving by train!

**A second 2-level 1-BR unit in our triplex has been serving as a vacation rental since 2008. See vrbo #255189. And a larger 1-BR unit (#512066) is spacious and our former home in the front of the triplex.

A single-level floor-plan, the entry Living Room is wonderfully lighted by a central skylite. It has a top-quality queen pull-out sofabed by AU for additional guests, and a 42' flat-screen HD-TV with HD-DirecTV and DVR-player.
A high-top dining table and stools are served from a kitchen that has a full fridge, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, all granite counters, and is outfitted with Cuisinart coffee-maker, toaster, & blender, including basic cookware/dishware.

French-doors off the living area lead to a spacious, private outdoor deck area beside Mission Creek with patio table/chairs. Lots of birdlife.

A more shaded bedroom has a plush-top queen-size bed with down duvet & pillows, a top-quality large dresser, and shower in a white-tiled bathroom. Resurrected original fir flooring runs throughout. A rear door opens to a creekside patio with century-old wall, and birdlife.

WiFi internet coverage is free. An extensive DVD library is often made available to guests by the owner.

Bicycle(s) are available for shared use. Laundry facilities are on-site. Non-smokers only please. No pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are new residents of Santa Barbara, having recently moved from the Sacramento area and Canada before that. We occupy the front main unit of this beautiful tri-plex by the beach and oversee the property ourselves. Our rooftop is a demonstration aeroponic, soil-less vertical farm. Health-conscious and fitness oriented, our family enjoys beach volleyball, bicycling and running right here in West Beach with its nearby amenities. We also are pioneering a soil-less, vertical aeroponic Tower Garden farm on our rooftop.

Why the Owner Chose West Beach:
West Beach is THE place to stay in SB for both beach and downtown access. Very few properties become available here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The historic building and charming unit are unique in SB. The privacy offered by the backyard patio by Mission Creek is special.
