Property description

Designed by Michelle Kaufmann, an award-winning green architect, and located on Santa Barbara’s Upper East Side, the Upper East Retreat is located in a safe and quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance of the historic Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Gardens. Explore State Street with a bike ride or leisurely stroll to the downtown area. Or bask in the sunshine in the beautiful backyard, where indoor space and outdoor living effortlessly merge into an idyllic backdrop for the ultimate Santa Barbara getaway.

With recent articles in Seasons Magazine and Better Homes and Gardens, this eco-friendly home has earned substantial praise from the press for its “green” construction and design. Multiple indoor and outdoor seating areas create a wonderful environment for families and friends to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Beautiful, brand new furnishings and original artwork accent the modern contemporary aesthetic of this spectacular Santa Barbara home.
