              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1953

              About the owner: Born and raised in Santa Barbara, I returned a few years ago after living all over the world thanks the the US Navy! Having spent time on both coasts, England, Turkey, Germany, Costa Rica, Alaska...I'm thrilled to be back home! As a local I went to high school here and then on to UCSB, later graduating from California Western School of Law in San Diego. I currently split my time between Santa Barbara and Whitefish, Montana. I'm lucky that I have these two gorgeous places to call home, the best of both worlds!

              Why the Owner Chose The Mesa (Beach Area):
              Privately owed and operated, this property has been in my family for over 50 years. Uniquely undeveloped and private setting over looking Santa Barbara has always provided an oasis in paradise for me and home to many landscape artists over the years. It's a magical spot in a beautiful city.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Location, location, location! Where else can you enjoy panoramic views of the city, mountains and beaches and be in the center of a 15 acre oak grove in the middle of Santa Barbara?
