When you think of Santa Barbara living, imagine yourself relaxing on the back porch of a classic Spanish home in a lush tropical setting. Tall lazy palm trees blow in the afternoon breeze and the long days of summer bring with them, cool evenings and colorful sunsets.

This Spanish-style home built on approximately half an acre of usable land was originally constructed in the 1930’s. Designed for a lifestyle of enjoyment and relaxation, the home is located in the heart of one of the best Santa Barbara neighborhoods in highly sought after Vieja Valley School District. The historical red tile roof and classic windows accent the exterior. The distinctive over-sized entry door opens to a majestic living room with soaring beamed ceilings, beautiful tiled floors, and a warm inviting fireplace. The formal dining room is a romantic gathering spot for family and friends to enjoy with outside access through a French door.

The adjoining sun room, perfect for a wonderful home office, has French doors that lead to a relaxing pergola-covered patio and the beautiful grounds and garden area. The original kitchen with pantry/laundry room and convenient powder room, offers the perfect opportunity to finish out this great space to suit your desires and lifestyle. The master suite is large enough to include a sitting area in front of the built-in closets. French doors take you the lush gardens and yard area perfect for enjoying quiet evenings under the stars – truly a wonderful retreat at the end of the day. The master bath is a delight with oversized bathtub, walk-in shower, and built-in linen storage.

Two family bedrooms are generous in size and offer abundant natural light along with hard wood floors and built-in closets. A classic bathroom complete with claw foot tub and shower, tiled floors, and pedestal sink can be accessed from both bedrooms easily. The added feature of an exterior door makes this the perfect stop after a day at the beach before entering the formal rooms of the home. A unique and charming feature is the detached artist studio, once used as a pre-school. This space, with electricity, offers options for a workshop or art studio. With a little imagination, the space could also be used as extended family quarters. Two additional small rooms can be used as work spaces or additional storage.

This is truly a wonderful home and ready to enjoy.Offered at $1,150,000
