                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: I live in Santa Cruz CA & work part-time as an ICU nurse. I have 2 wonderful grown children and 2 very handsome Labradors. My favorite activities are hiking with my dogs, scuba diving, golfing & traveling. I come to Santa Barbara to stay in my beautiful house whenever I can afford the time & vacancy.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      My house is extremely comfortable, spacious & relaxing, convenient but away from downtown noise & tourist traffic. It is a safe family neighborhood. Once you're there you never want to leave!
