In a building of only four units, Midtown Modern is a gorgeous condo located just off of State Street in mid-town Santa Barbara. It is just far enough away from the bustle of the bars and retail shops of lower State to feel quiet and residential, yet still within a short 10-20 minute stroll down State to all those restaurants, movie theaters, shops and live entertainment venues. You are so close to the historic Arlington, Lobero, and Granada theaters so there's no need to drive home after having too much fun. Right next door is Cantwell's, a small neighborhood grocery market/deli that has anything you'd need in a pinch. Trader Joes's is also just a short drive or bike ride away! Alice Keck Park Gardens is a smaller version of Golden Gate Park with ponds and hundreds of species of trees, flowers, birds and turtles; such a great place to take a book and relax and its just a few short steps away. The Saturday and Tuesday Farmers' Markets downtown are walkable too - or take the town shuttle for fifty cents down to Stearns Wharf and the town beaches!
This spacious 1500 square foot condo feels more like an urban townhouse. The ground floor is one large open living space with a fully equipped professional chef's kitchen with tons of cabinet space. The cookware is heavy duty commercial, perfectly befitting for such a great work space. Every kitchen utensil has been provided! There are even stoppers and a pump to keep your unfinished wines fresh!
The sunken Living Room has an elegant black marble gas-burning fireplace for cold nights or just for ambience. This home is furnished with a combination of mid-century vintage Hans Olsen Danish Modern pieces, Danish modern rosewood tables, a 1950's Fredrick Weinberg wall sculpture and other new modern pieces. Its safe to say Midtown Modern has a very spare modernist appeal. A 55” smart TV, DVD players and Cox Premium high speed internet and wi-fi provide the entertainment. The Dining Room, with an Eames dining table and 1960's Thonet chrome chairs, is of the same modern style.
The modern-day wire and stainless staircase ascends the atrium at the center of the house - thirty feet above the ground floor to clerestory windows which bring in plenty of light.
Both bedrooms are very spacious with high ceilings and lots of windows. They both also have walk-in closets along with plenty of storage space. These rooms have pegged Japanese gum wood Tatami bed frames with top quality mattresses - The Master Bedroom with a king and the other with a queen.
The Saltillo-tiled patio, with aluminum furniture and a newly-planted succulent garden, is a peaceful place for a glass of wine or an outdoor supper. Come feel inspired in this contemporary style home we call Midtown Modern!
