Penthouse Living in Downtown Santa Barbara

Cityscape - Penthouse Living in Downtown Santa Barbara

Cityscape is a luxury penthouse located in the heart of Downtown. This premiere retreat is located one block from State Street; just steps from the exciting variety of restaurants, shops, and galleries that exemplify the charm and appeal of Santa Barbara.

This cosmopolitan escape is located on the top floor of a corner building. It boasts an expansive private wrap-around rooftop terrace. This terrace overlooks two classic Santa Barbara landmarks; the Arlington Theater and The Granada Theater.

As the secure elevator opens to your fourth-floor penthouse, you are treated to a panoramic view of the red-tile rooftops of historic downtown Santa Barbara.The stunning urban view is framed by the Santa Ynez mountains to the North and coastal skyline views to the South. During your initial tour, It is readily apparent that this special home was thoughtfully designed with green-building standards in mind.

The main living area is a welcoming Great Room with white leather couches and chairs. This comfortable area is perfect for entertaining business associates, or just relaxing with friends during a long weekend getaway. A flat-screen TV is housed in a unique illuminated cabinet, while the lofty feeling of the room is emphasized by the whitewashed open beam ceilings. French doors lead to the generous roof top Terrace.

The well-equipped kitchen opens to a cozy dining area with a round marble table that comfortably seats four. All chefs will enjoy the weekly nearby Farmer's Markets (Tuesdays and Saturdays) where visitors can purchase local produce and other fresh delicacies.

The two generous bedrooms feature French doors to the Terrace, along with scenic views. Each room is equipped with a flat screen TV and a quality sound system with iPod dock.

The Master Suite includes a full bath with a combination shower and bathtub. For additional privacy, this area of the home may be closed-off with a door of frosted glass. The second bedroom is appointed with a king sized bed, and is served by a full bath across the hall.

Without a doubt, the private roof top Terrace, with its comfortable patio furniture, sets the relaxed mood of this penthouse home. High above the city streets below, it becomes a hideaway for private entertaining or, if you prefer, for observing the activities below as people go about enjoying the city.This a great place to relax with a glass of wine, while tending the steaks on the outdoor natural gas BBQ.

The central location of this property makes an ideal springboard to both activity and relaxation alike. Proximity to one-of-a-kind boutiques, luxury day spas, wine-tasting rooms, and fine restaurants define this home as traveler's dream.

When it comes to enjoying the outdoors, plan to spend time at local beaches, the Harbor and Stearn's Wharf, which are all just a few scenic blocks away. Comfortable day trip destinations from this location certainly include a short drive over the hill to the beautiful wine country of the Santa Ynez Valley with its charming villages.

Cityscape is the ideal 'home base' to step out and create your Santa Barbara dream vacation. With its prime location, clean urban style and comfortable ambiance, a fabulous and effortless vacation is guaranteed!

                                                              Just as all the reviews state - this is a great unit in a great location! It has everything one needs - exceeds expectations!

                                                              Great location & amenities

                                                              Allison L.

                                                              Pictures are very accurate. Comfortable beds and furniture. Location can't be beat if you want to enjoy the restaurants, shopping and wine tasting rooms on State Street. Management was very responsive when we reported an issue with the front gate lock. Issue was fixed same day. This condo is on the top floor of an office building so no other tourists in the building. Security is excellent. We decided that Santa Barbara will be a repeat trip and I will definitely book with Paradise Retreats due to their top-notch service.

                                                              Great Santa Barbara Stay

                                                              Joe K.Midwest

                                                              This is the second time that we have stayed at Cityscape. The location is great. You can walk to anywhere downtown or the beach. Many restaurants and shops also in walking distance. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The view is fantastic. We visit Santa Barbara often and always use Paradise Retreats listings for our stay. We find them extremely responsive and their properties are always clean and updated frequently. They really want to make you extend your stay.

                                                              I want to live here

                                                              Nya S.

                                                              Honestly, if it wasn't so expensive, I'd come down to Santa Barbara all the time and and stay at this location. It was walking distance from every place I wanted to visit. The house came equipped with everything I needed except filtered water, but the store was walking distance. The only reason I mention that is because the water tastes quite awful so bring a gallon or two with you. The rooms were beautiful and the deck was phenomenal. Weirdly, the only thing that was shabby was the living room couch. It was kind of a head-scratcher, really.

                                                              Response to sofa sleeper

                                                              The owners of this penthouse have since installed new triple pane windows in the master suite. The HVAC units have also been updated and are now quiet. We are sorry you had to sleep on the sofa and we hope you will give this special place another chance!

                                                              I want to live here! Great find in the heart of Santa Barbara!

                                                              This is a hidden gem in the heart of Santa Barbara. It is so nice, so spacious, and in such a great area, I want to live here! We stayed when it was unseasonably warm in Santa Barbara, and, unlike the other review, the A/C was very quiet and worked great the entire time. It is only one block off of State Street, making everything a short walk or short Uber ride away. The property itself has a great living room, full kitchen, and I really appreciated the two bathrooms and how you could close a door in the hallway to separate one bedroom and bath from the other. The rooftop patio was also a fantastic place to relax with a glass of wine. I can't say enough great things about this place. It will always be my first choice for future trips to Santa Barbara!
