Upper East house description

'Casita Querida' is an incredibly romantic old-world Italian-style villa built in 1929, located in Santa Barbara's Upper East neighborhood within walking distance to many cultural attractions, including the Mission, Rose Gardens, Solstice Parade, Fiesta Parade, and downtown. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, delightful master bathroom, ample closet space, and a lovely terrace with views of the mountains. There are two other bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, and the other with a full-size bed, all on the second floor. The family room and great room open out to a stone terrace with fountain, offering plenty of room for dining al fresco. A lush lawn stretches toward the inviting pool, creating a gorgeous setting fit for a romantic get-away, honeymoon, or a quiet retreat from the bustle of the big city.
