Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I'm a native Santa Barbarian who grew up in the triplex next door. This building was built in '96, the year our daughter was born. We raised her next door for the first five years of her life. The Studio had been leased out yearly and now we've made it into a vacation rental. We enjoy using it ourselves occasionally, when we want to escape from the Portland winters or play at the beach in the summers. We're looking forward to sharing our 2nd home with you.

Why the Owner Chose Lower State, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
This West Beach property is in the heart of the Funk Zone. Best restaurants, wineries, Stearn's Wharf, yacht harbor all nearby. State Street trolley is 1/2 block away.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
100 steps to the Pacific, with everything you could want in a beach get away. The BEST place to watch the 4th of July Fireworks!
