Central San Roque – 215 Calle Palo Colorado

Up the brick path, a graceful wide covered porch is a welcoming entry to this charming 2-bedroom 2-bath home. Centrally located just off Argonne Circle, the home’s location is only one block from Peabody Charter School, making walking the kids to school a breeze.

Inside, original hardwood floors include crafted parquet under an open beam ceiling in a sunny dining room with sliding door to the backyard garden. The living room with gas fireplace heater offers corner paned windows that flood the space with light; built-in corner bookshelves anchor the space and add plenty of shelving for a fine book collection or children’s reading corner.

With pine cabinetry and walk-in pantry the kitchen’s size affords the opportunity to also have a breakfast nook neatly tucked into a corner. Just off the kitchen and dining room is the laundry room with access to the backyard and attached two-car garage through a covered breezeway.

The master suite thoughtfully offers an attached bathroom with large walk-in shower and considered handicap accessible as needed. The second bedroom is appointed with a built-in desk area just perfect for working professionals to use this room as a home office.

In the backyard, roses, orange trees, persimmon, and picturesque fig tree add color and tasty treats to a fully enclosed yard. The kids will simply enjoy playing in the shade of this mini orchard-like setting.

Besides its evident charm and appeal, the true benefit of this beloved home is being able to walk out the front door and stroll the beautiful meandering streets to enjoy the subtle beauty and friendly atmosphere of this intriguing and scenic haven. San Roque is one of Santa Barbara’s most iconic and oldest neighborhoods, with a colorful and intriguing past as varied as its eclectic architectural landscape. The scenic area is well known for a variety of styles where proper English Tudor’s blend seamlessly with Spanish Colonial and California bungalows.

It is worth noting that this home is near the original home of Stephen Rutherford, the wealthy landowner who founded San Roque and the iconic Argonne Circle, once known as Rutherford Park. The street name, Palo Colorado, means “redwood tree” and named for the stately redwood that today still marks Rutherford’s original estate on the corner, just two doors down from this wonderful property.
