Upper East house description

This fabulous California Craftsman is recently built but has a classic heritage. Fine workmanship shows in the stained wood trim throughout the house. An open kitchen, a great room, and multiple outdoor spaces makes for a perfect gathering spot for friends and family. Enjoy a BBQ in the Zen garden, curl up with a book in the window seat, have a cup of coffee on the front porch, or take in the views of the mountains from the balcony.

The upscale kitchen has all the amenities you expect but keeps that cozy home feel. An island with three stools makes meal prep a social occasion. The Wolf stove has five burners with a built-in warming drawer below. The dining room seats 8; more if you add the leaves!

The Great Room has a massive stone fireplace (with gas) and a solid wood beam running the length of the room. The HDTV and stereo are tastefully housed in a custom built cabinet. Reclining leather chairs, a couch, a game table, and French doors opening to the back yard make this truly a family room.

The second floor is a complete master suite. The bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, multiple windows, and French doors opening to a balcony. (There’s even a tiny patch of ocean visible between the trees.) Possibly the best room in the house, the master bathroom has a two person tub, a walk in shower with bench, his and hers sinks, and a view of the garden. Granite and tumbled travertine are used throughout.

The two downstairs bedrooms each have French doors facing the Zen garden. The larger bedroom sleeps four when using the fold-out futon. The smaller bedroom comfortably sleeps two adults. Three bathrooms makes it easy for everyone to have their space. (And you’ll never run out of hot water with the tankless water heater.)

The covered front porch, with a glass table and four chairs, is a charming spot for breakfast. The grass backyard also has a flagstone patio with a large teak table and chairs, sun shade, and a sky chair for relaxing with a cold one. Enjoy Santa Barbara’s weather in the privacy of the yard. Come dark you can make s’mores over the fire pit. The Zen garden off the dining room is perfect for outdoor entertaining or just peacefully listening to the fountain and distant Mission bells while watching the birds.

There’s so much to do in the area. From the house you can easily walk downtown and to Alice Keck park and the Mission. Wine country is just over the hill. Check out the Funk Zone, the Botanic Garden, Lotusland and the Ellwood Butterfly Grove. And of course, the beautiful beaches. The amenities and locale of this special Santa Barbara home strikes an ideal balance of enjoying an adventurous yet relaxing vacation.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2002

          About the owner: My wife and I met in college at UCSB. We then moved to the San Francisco Bay area, got married, bought a house in San Jose, and had two wonderful girls. It took us a while but we were finally able to move back to Santa Barbara in 2002.

          Why the Owner Chose Upper East:
          My grandmother Doodie bought this house in 1976, when it was a two-bedroom, non-descript, 1960’s ranch-style with drafty louvered windows. In 2002 my wife and I remodeled it into what you see now, adding the second floor and giving it a California Craftsman vibe, in keeping with the neighborhood.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          A wonderful neighborhood with views of the hills, lots of trees, and easy walking distance to the Mission, Alice Keck Park, and downtown. We are so lucky to live in our little slice of heaven that is Santa Barbara.
