Car: Not Necessary

The house is exceptionally located to enjoy Santa Barbara. You can walk on sidewalks to museums, restaurants, bars, movies and shopping. The beach is only 5 minutes away by car or a 15 minute walk. Walk to the beach and take the electric bus home up State Street. The Mission of Santa Barbara is five blocks away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I grew up in Santa Barbara and have lived here my entire adult life. I know a lot about Santa Barbara. I am married to Fernanda who is from Argentina. We have 3 children and I have 2 older kids from a previous marriage. Fernanda and I live around the corner from 115 East Islay Street at 1807 Santa Barbara Street. Living near by the rental home makes it easy to respond to questions or problems encountered by the tenants.

Why the Owner Chose Upper East:
We own 2 homes on this block because the Upper Eastside is the best place to be in Santa Barbara. Period. There are other nice areas, but we appreciate the elegant homes and the sidewalks. We spend many afternoons just walking around the neighborhood. For the most part each home in this area is old, large, well maintained and architecturally distinct. Each block provides a pleasant visual experience each time you walk by. And, the central part of the city is just a few blocks away and the Mission is a few blocks the other way. It is location, location, location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
115 East Islay was built in 1894 by the Edwards family who owned the whole block. The house was built with old growth redwood which was rolled off the ships, pushed ashore, milled into lumber down by the beach, and driven up State Street in horse drawn wagons. It survived the 1925 earthquake and everything else that nature and people have thrown at it for over 120 years. It is an honor to be inside the house with all of its hidden stories. The house sits on a 1/2 acre lot, with the house situated in the middle of the lot. You get a country feel while being in the city. And Islay Street is not a busy street, like Santa Barbara and Anacapa streets.
