About the Property
House: 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6) + optional self contained studio (1/1)
This is a breathtaking, supremely livable, architectural gem, designed by Santa Barbara’s architect extraordinaire, Jeff Shelton. You’ll find nothing like it. The house was built in 2003, and was given the award for Best New Home of the year by Santa Barbara Beautiful, an independent organization created to enhance the City’s beauty. Spanish Colonial with an attitude. Three bedroom; 2-½ bath upscale rental in THE perfect Santa Barbara setting.
The Upper Riviera is an enclave of quiet meandering roads, stonewalls and fine homes, all sharing the ocean view. Stroll and discover for yourself the best and most beautiful neighborhood in Santa Barbara. This IS the California Riviera.
About this house: The spacious all in one indoor “public” living area (with half bath) has top-of-the line cooking and dining facilities with teak countertops and a huge teak covered island. A TV/family/reading room, nestled to the side the kitchen, is stocked with books, a 50-inch flat screen TV and streaming Netflicks. The dinning table sits in front of a ceiling-to-floor window overlooking the ocean. The indoor space opens onto a comfortable outdoor patio with awe-inspiring views of nearby tile rooftops, the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands. This is an great place to entertain.
Set away on it own private wing, the master suite (queen) consists of a romantic coved sleeping room adjacent to a more formal reading area (with piano!). The master bath has a washer and dryer (one of two in the home), tub, glass-tiled shower and his and hers dressing areas. Two other bedrooms (queen and double) are located on a separate wing on the first floor. These rooms share a single, fully tiled bathroom and have their own washer and dryer. One of the bedrooms has a private door that opens onto a patio. One bedroom is small and, although very beautiful, it does not have a closet. A closet is located in a hallway across from the room.
Beautiful furnishings and quality paintings collected from local plein-aire artists blend with the award-winning architecture to create a great place to come home to. We are only minutes to downtown, beaches and mountain trails.
In addition to the house, there is a private, attached and self-contained Studio apartment with a full bath and kitchenette (no stove), rented separately and currently occupied. The Studio could be rented with the house . There would be an additional fee. This would be a perfect situation for long-term guests or visiting family with young children. The Studio would only be available if the house was let for a year.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I am a professional botanist and mother to my 28-year-old daughter. I built this great house in 2003 and Santa Barbara’s been my home for over 30 years. I love art and nature. I also love to travel, and renting out my place helps me get going on my journey.
Why the Owner Chose Upper Riviera, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
This is my primary home. I go on long trips and rent it out while I'm gone. I first came to Santa Barbara from the East in 1973 and knew immediately this was home. There have been changes here, like everywhere else, but those of us who live here will tell you (and “commiserate” amongst ourselves), that we are the luckiest of people. I confess I feel so grateful every day to be surrounded by the beauty and happiness that envelopes this area. This house is less than ten minutes from downtown and it’s a lovely walk (or drive). But the separation is a good thing because it can get a little hectic in town. You’ll never know “hectic” up here on the Riviera.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is so very peaceful. The palest of blue coved ceiling nook in the master bedroom is lined with French doors opening to the ocean. It’s a great place to nap, with breezes floating through the linen curtains. The ocean view from the main living area is BIG. The kitchen, dinning area (with fireplace) and den (with library and TV/DVD), sits in the center of this view, although almost any window will offer up the Pacific. The couch in the den is also an excellent place to nap.
