Mission Canyon house description

Enjoy two nights, a week, or a month in this unique (2000 sq. ft.) home in Santa Barbara's historic Mission Canyon right next to Mission Creek. This unusual home has large picture windows and skylights that make you feel as if you are living outdoors or in a treehouse. On the bank of Mission Creek, it is surrounded by a garden of ferns, coastal live oak trees, and redwoods. Next door to the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, it is within walking distance to several hiking and bike trails and five minutes to numerous historic and cultural attractions such as the Old Mission (Queen of the Missions), Museum of Natural History, and others. The renound beaches of Santa Barbara are only a 15 minute drive. Wine country in the Santa Ynez Valley is only a scenic 30 minute drive over the picturesque San Marcos Pass Road.
