Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hi - I am a Realtor (23 yrs) ex Remax & Sotheby's in the area coming from the Pharmaceutical Industry being Asst. Manager for the Caribbean Region for Ciba Geigy and then Smithkline Beecham (pharma). Have lived in Carpinteria (for 22yrs) and just love it and highly recommend it to all. I play tennis golf hike mountains (highest peak 19,350ft - Kilimanjaro & have an intense knowledge of the area while also being a world traveler. Just got back from the El Camino (5 weeks hiking in France & Spain). I can speak Spanish well & Afrikaans and look forward to meeting you when you arrive.

Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria, CA, USA:
This is just a great family house in town yet it is so close the the bright lights of Santa Barbara (11ml) and of course Los Angeles (80 mile) Santa Barbara is a world class destination resort with Ocean and Mountains and a superb cultural center with highly rated Film Festivals as well

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ocean & Mountians - cultural and sporting events - Film Festivals - University/study ops - Wonderful weather all year round. The house has a serenity and a full size iron zebra to welcome you - a large well maintained private garden - lots of off street parking - while offering all the central amenities of Carpinteria.
