About William and Danece Stapleton
We are an RN/LCSW & College Professor/Pastor, who have traveled the world and lived in many other countries. Our love for Japan (home for 13 years) is reflected in the downstairs suite. Our grandparents bought this property in 1950 and we enjoyed many childhood days and high school courtship here. This Craftsman home was completed in 2011 as a family project/retreat, which we make available on a limited basis for other families and friends.

Why William and Danece Stapleton chose Carpinteria
Our grandparents bought this property in 1950 and it was occupied by Uncle, a WWII Vet for 30 years after Grandmother King passed. The property sits on a cul-de-sac next to a protected preserve, (thus 'King's End') overlooking the Protected City landmark, the Portola Sycamore - where the Spanish explorer Gaspar de Portola originally met with the Chumash Indians in 1769 and named this place 'La Carpinteria,' (the spelling is Spanish and it means 'the carpenter's shop'), noting that the Indians were building a very sophisticated kind of canoe, which they called a 'tomol,' out of the trunks of the sycamores. Rather than hacking out the center of the logs and floating them like a dugout, they were actually sawing the logs into boards to build what we might call 'real boats.' So, because of its long-standing history that lot became a preserve, and you can see the memorial plaque if you walk down to the tree. Although public property, the preserve adds ambience and an airy quality to our property as well.
What makes this House unique
Our grandchildren's favorites: The famous, Robitalle's Candy Shop, Foster's Freeze, Sushi Teri, Reyes' Market, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and Starbuck's all a short walk down town. The home reflects history and modern convenience. Comfortable, relaxed, close to town yet secluded.
