Completely renovated in 2010 and newly furnished, this unique sun-lit unit is part of a historic triplex in the desirable West Beach area.

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.
