Property description

Our Andalusian style home was designed and built with local culture and relaxation in mind. The indoor flooring is dark wood plank floors and stone. The countertops are various marbles in beige and gold tones. The master bedroom is downstairs. The size is double the size of regular bedrooms having a King bed on one half and a lounge area on the other half. Down the hall is a master bath with 2 vanities of polished marble and polished nickel trims. There is a body spray shower and jacuzzi tub.

Upstairs are 2 additional bedrooms:
The Garden Room is a queen bed cashmere tempurpedic mattress. There are 2 large windows opening up to the backyard garden view and a door to a private patio.
The Pacific Room is a twin bed cashmere tempurpedic mattress. There are double doors opening to a private patio of downtown Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean. There is space on the floor in this room for an Aero-Bed, if this is to be the kid's room.
These 2 rooms each have their own closet, toilet, and vanity sink. They share one shower.

Enter the front door and go downstairs to the master suite/floor or go upstairs to enter the sitting room with indoor and outdoor lounging. There are double doors to the balcony and seating all around to view the sunrises and sunsets over the city of Santa Barbara and the Pacific ocean.

The center of the house is the TV room/family room. It is an open area concept that flows to the kitchen, dining room, and rear yard.

The gourmet kitchen is filled with stainless steel appliances and many cooking tools.

The rear yard is surrounded by stucco walls with a fireplace and lounging area just outside the dining room. There is a kitchen garden on the left side (when in season) and Viking Bar-B-Que set up on the right side. A gentle urn fountain creates a relaxing rear yard experience.

Car: Recommended

Our home is on a quiet street, close to downtown Santa Barbara. Located just 1 mile from the heart of Downtown Santa Barbara; You can drive downtown within 5 minutes or walk within 30 minutes. There are downtown shuttle buses to catch to drive you and your family around the Santa Barbara downtown and harbor attractions.

Watch the colorful sun rise and sun set over the city from our house or go to the beach.

Shop at the Farmer's Markets; Enjoy lunch al fresco at various ethnic restaurants; Finish your day at a wine bar or in the funk zone at the newly re-developed urban wine trail near the beach area; Pick up some gourmet sandwiches and pack them for a picnic hike in the nearby foothills of shaded canopies and creeks; Stroll around the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens; Visit the historical buildings in the area.

Authentic mexican restaurants are on the Milpas Street about 3 minutes from the house. The best Chinese take-away restaurant in town is just at the bottom of the Riviera hill about 2 minutes away.

The Harbor area has restaurants, shopping, boating and kayaking rentals or just enjoying boat watching.

Santa Barbara has 2 venues for live entertainment and both the Lobero Theatre and the Granada Theatre were recently renovated.

There are 3 large stadium seating movie theatres downtown.

Our Santa Barbara Tennis Club membership (gym, heated pool, jacuzzi, tennis, ping-pong, basketball, outdoor BBQ, outdoor cafe dining is extended to our guests.

Please let me know what you enjoy to do and I will refer the coffee bars, sandwich shops, restaurants, take away restaurants, places to see, tours, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I Love to cook! Most of our food is purchased at the many Farmer's Market venues in Santa Barbara. We have a kitchen garden when the weather allows to supplement my weekly shopping.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Riviera:
This property is close and far from downtown Santa Barbara. It is close enough to walk around the charming neighborhood and down into town. It is far enough away that you and your family can relax on our balconies or cozy yard spaces and feel relaxed.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is old and new designed with Moorish/Spanish influences that are historic to the city of Santa Barbara: White Plaster, terra cotta roofs, outdoor balconies, gentle water fountains are outside. Tea-stained plaster walls, arch openings, wood plank floors, artisan moroccan tile, hand-forged wrought iron, and comfortable soft furniture are on the inside. Our home was completely rebuilt and added on to in 2007. The charm of the old architecture is blended into modern conveniences. In addition, white lights light up the outside at night to add some additional ambiance.
