Private Homes house description
Kick your feet up and enjoy the best Santa Barbara has to offer in this gorgeous craftsman home. Built in 2012 by the owner, this cottage-style home is perfect for a family getaway. Three beautifully furnished bedrooms (two with queen sized beds, one with a crib) two spacious bathrooms, and an open floor plan make this the perfect place for your vacation.
The kitchen/dining area features large sliding glass doors that fully open to the stone patio and well landscaped grounds. Eat indoors or outdoors on the patio and enjoy watching the many varieties of birds and beautiful sunsets in the western sky. The kitchen is equipped with custom cabinetry, marble countertops, brand new stainless steel appliances, and a fully stocked kitchen. The living room has custom bookshelves, a fireplace, and a Baldwin piano just waiting to be played. With rich oak floors throughout, this home has an incredible warm and friendly feel.
Each bedroom is tastefully furnished in a Restoration Hardware style pleasing to the eye. Snuggle up in one of the two cozy queen sized beds or relax on the hand-built rocking chair on the master porch. The child’s room is equipped with a crib, comfortable glider chair, and dresser perfect for your little traveler.
The master bathroom features marble countertops and marble tile floors as well as a spacious shower. The guest bath has a vintage style with black-and-white hex tile, a pedestal sink, and a clawfoot bathtub for unwinding after a day of sightseeing. Each room has ample closet and cabinet space, and the master bedroom features a generous walk-in closet.
Take a stroll through the gardens, with native plants and flowers and a fruit orchard, or lay a blanket out on the grass and watch the clouds drift by. A private outdoor shower with warm water awaits after your day at the beach. While this property has a rustic country feel, restaurants, a grocery store, and a bus stop are just a five minute walk down the road. Walking trails and a bike path leading to the beach are just a few minutes by foot, or take the five minute drive to Moore Mesa preserve and beach for incredible scenery and bird watching.
This spot is perfect for families and vacationers looking for a relaxing time. This home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, so if you are looking to party, this spot is not for you. Come rest, relax and recharge in a beautiful, charming setting!

Such a great place!
Such a great place!
This is just a wonderful place. We cannot stress enough how impressed we were by the fact that the owner, Chase, entirely built the house, while his wife, Cassie, took care of the garden, both with a near perfect end result. We had a great stay in Santa Barbara and in their home, the kids had a blast and on top we had the pleasure to be welcome by Pam and Steve, Chase's parents, who always made sure that we felt at home and have everything we needed during our stay and even more (toys for the kids, microwave, vegetables from their garden, places to visit...). The rental process, handled by Cassie, has also been very smooth. Great stay, great people, great house.

Serene Garden Cottage
We can't say enough about this property and the owners. The photos were exactly what you got and more!!! The owners and family are welcoming and delightful people and made our stay a pleasant and enjoyable experience. A custom designed sliding wall of windows opened up the entire cottage to the patio area, overlooking a manicured garden setting full of color, fruit trees, and meandering paths. Extremely calm, quiet, peaceful, private setting. The custom cottage is ideal in every detail and needs to be seen to be appreciated. The access is great to beaches, the Wharf, the Mission, shopping, restaurants and much more. Thank you for your hospitality!

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Chase and Cassie were both born and raised in Santa Barbara by their large extended family. Cassie is a seventh-generation Santa Barbara native and Adult Education teacher, and Chase is a finish carpenter with a local company. Their son, Ezra, was born in April of 2013.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
In 2012, they were able to live out their dream by building this home together, so the home has been built with pride of ownership and extraordinary attention to detail. The interior reflects Chase's skills as a craftsman/builder, and the grounds demonstrate Cassie's love of flowers and the outdoors.
