Car: Recommended

This beautiful Mesa home is located just minutes to Shoreline Park and the beach below. A two minute drive to the west and you can shop at a gourmet market or a regular super market. Within the same area you can dine on Mexican, Thai, Tapas, American home style, Chinese, Japanese, pizza and assorted fast food eateries. There are pharmacies, coffee houses and a dry cleaning business as well. A five minute drive over the hill and you are in the middle of downtown Santa Barbara or follow the beach and in the same amount of time you are at Stearns Wharf in the middle of the beach area and activities. After a busy day out and about you can return to the peace and serenity of this relaxing home.

Other Activities:

Wine tasting at local tasting rooms as well as wine tours in the Santa Ynez valley. There are daily whale watching trips available at the marina just minutes away from the house. depending on the time of the year, you will be able to see grey whales, humpback whales and blue whales. There are also seals , sea lions and dolphins to be seen.

If you want to go fishing there are daily trips from the Sea Landing at the marina just minutes away. The boat has food and drink and all tackle available to rent. The deck hands will help in all rigging and they give a tutorial on how to fish. They untangle your lines and take the fish off the hook and put them in a sack with a number that is yours. For a buck a fish they will clean it for you on the way back in. Truly a fun day. If fishing is not your thing and you still want to get on the water, you can rent a kayak or a stand up paddle board at the marina. Surfing lessons are also available from local surf camp companies

On Sunday mornings there is a beach show along the water front on Cabrillo Blvd. Browse local artists creations from photography, paintings, jewelry, woodworking crafts, glass creations ,pottery, leather working and many other items. If the kids are into skateboarding, there is a skateboarding park down by Stearns Warf,

You can spend a few hours at the Santa Barbara Zoo. There are many animals from giraffes to gorillas, lions and most things in between. It is a very pleasant place and I think you would enjoy it.

Just a block from the zoo on the beach are the famous beach volley ball courts where many world class and Olympic players have gotten their start.

Santa Barbara has many hiking trails up the mountains behind the city from difficult to easy with the ocean as a backdrop. Take plenty of water and stay on the trails.

As you can see there are many outdoor activities to keep you occupied. If you are not so inclined you can shop on lower and upper State Street. We have some upscale stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom's and Macy's. There are many other local stores as well as chain stores to browse in.

After all of this activity you can return to the house and have a nap or read a book in one of the many spaces inside or outside of the house.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We purchased this house as a 1000 ft 3 bd 1 bath home from1953 and turned it into a 2600 sq ft. home with 31/2 baths. I am in construction and work for a company that builds high end luxury homes. Vesla, my wife, was a nurse for twenty yrs. We have built this house and the gardens with our own hands and it took us many years to achieve. We are proud of what we have accomplished. And, we lived in the house the entire time that we remodeled it. Now that was an experience we wish never to repeat. I am originally from Minnesota and arrived in Santa Barbara in 1987 after living in Alaska for 1 year and Arizona for 2 1/2 years. I have been employed in construction for my adult life and have been with the same company in Santa Barbara for 26 years. Vesla is originally from Norway and has been in Santa Barbara since 1974. We have been married for 26 years. We have a daughter and 2 Grand children that live close to Park City, Utah. We have always had shih-Tzu's as our pets. We have adopted and rescued5 over the years and we have a cat named Missy who decided to live with us about 5 years ago. We have had many students live with us over the years as our house is 15 minute walk from Santa Barbara City College. We have had students from China, Japan, Brazil, Spain, France and Sweden. We have enjoyed them and retain contact with many of them. It is always nice to learn new things from different parts of the world. We are easy going and enjoy life and maybe we will meet you!

Why the Owner Chose East Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
Easy, comfortable and relaxed. That is the way we have built this house to be. We picked this house for it's proximity to town, the beach and the ease of being able to get anywhere in the area quickly. We are home bodies and we enjoy this house. Vesla spends a lot of time gardening and getting things just right. She spends the whole day nurturing the many different plants and trees in the garden. I, on the other hand take care of the maintenance and other little projects that come up around the house. This home has the feel of being lived in and loved. I believe you would get that sense as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has many outdoor areas to take advantage of the sun, the shade, areas to recline, read and dine. Inside ,if the day is not so nice, you can see the ocean and islands from the living room and enjoy music or a book. The house is light and airy with vaulted ceiling with beam work in the living/kitchen and master suite. You can cook while talking to your family at the same time. The open floor plan provides an intimacy that many homes do not have. This was by design and I believe you would enjoy this.
