1532 Olive Street, Santa Barbara, California 93101

A comfortable designer style with fine detail is evident in this 2 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home, high above Olive St. The living spaces have the signature craftsman style with wide casings, abundant windows and natural finishes.

The kitchen with chocolate finish on cherry cabinets, custom tile and rich dark counters give the kitchen a contemporary ambiance. Blue pendant lighting over a raised breakfast bar with seating for four adds sophistication. A wrap around deck offers sunset views just outside the front door.

The main feature of this home is found upstairs in the generous master suite with private balcony and two very large closets. These walk-in closets are nearly spacious enough to design a cozy bedroom office within. This is an inviting and serene space with bathrooms that offer the same warm appointments as the other Arrellaga and Olive units.

The second bedroom suite, with full bath and private balcony, has the same closet configuration and generous organizational options. Just outside the bedrooms, and at the top of the stairs, is a mezzanine office with large built-in cherry desk and media connections.

Each upstairs bedroom has a private balcony with not only city views but views of the ocean as well. Gentle olive branches back drop these spaces offering privacy to already serene spaces .

The unit has an attached 1 car garage, with access to an additional walk-in garage across the driveway.


Every aspect of this home is warm, welcoming and smart.

“Arrellaga and Olive”


With century old homes lining the streets of the historical Mission District, this newly constructed 3-unit development sits proudly in the heart of the upper east tradition. Arrellaga and Olive is an impeccably well thought out project, melding seamlessly into the community with classic craftsman charm, and architectural detail. With its proximity to downtown, the location could not be more ideal for today’s lifestyle.

Each distinctive unit has been designed with careful attention to every detail. Designer style with a practical sense is evident in each home, with an abundance of large closets, unique storage, lighted niches for showcasing art, pre-wired electronic connections, laundry rooms, garages, view balconies, and more upscale features that are unique to each unit.

The well equipped kitchens of Arrellaga and Olive boast the newest amenities and appliances that one would expect of new construction. Each kitchen is accented with a different style signature, with a variety of cabinet finishes, granite countertops, different sinks, storage options and all Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances.

Each unit has view balconies and patios to enjoy an evening sunset or the red tile roofs of the city, or the ocean and islands of the Santa Barbara Channel beyond.

No matter which impeccable unit fits ones particular lifestyle, the gift of solid construction, fine craftsmanship, and incredible value will be evident the moment you walk through each large craftsman door that welcome you home.
