My Notes

This picturesque cottage offers the charm & privacy of an English garden with the convenience of being close to the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. With all of the size & space of its original 3 Bedroom design, this now enlarged 2 Bed/1 Bath home has been extensively renovated to blend its old world charm with energy efficient upgrades, modern conveniences, & Pottery Barn style finishes.Sitting on a corner lot, raised above the street for privacy, this delightful home checks all the boxes of a quintessential Santa Barbara cottage: from the sandstone walls and mature hedges surrounding the property, to the low-maintenance garden, filled with a variety of coloring plants and fruit trees. The interior features oak wood floors throughout much of the home, a large formal dining room and a cozy fireplace in the living room. Vaulted ceilings in the living room and bedrooms make these already ample rooms feel even larger. The newer dual-paned windows adhere to the original style of the home, while saving on energy costs. Five Sola Tubes, well placed throughout the property, bring in even more natural light. The large bathroom has been artfully remodeled with luxury appointments, including a tumbled marble tiled shower and tub, a custom vanity with his and her sinks and a Carerra marble top and quality oil rubbed bronze fixtures. The updated kitchen is bright and open, with custom maple cabinets, granite counters and a large window filling the space with natural light. The expansive master bedroom was created by combining two of the three original bedrooms and features vaulted ceilings, good closet space, and beautiful french doors to the back patio. The master bedroom also provides enough room that, should one want to, an en-suite bathroom could be added without expanding the footprint of the home. The main systems of the property have been updated with a newer composition roof, an energy efficient tankless water heater, and updated electrical, heating and plumbing systems. The fully-fenced back yard provides options for relaxation, with a spacious deck, made of synthetic material for easy maintenance, as well as a flag stone patio and hot tub. There is additional yard space tucked behind the garage with a variety of fruit trees, including Fig, Peach, Pear, and Avocado. Like many Santa Barbara homes, the detached garage (accessed from Pueblo St) has been created into a versatile space with finished walls, vaulted ceiling, side by side laundry facilities, and two carriage style garage doors. This wonderful California cottage sits just a block off of State St, less than a mile from Trader Joe's, 2 miles from both Paseo Nuevo and La Cumbre shopping centers and 2.5 miles from Stearn's Wharf and the beach. The home is located in the desirable Peabody School District and is just a short distance away. With a WalkScore of 74, this home is close to everything Santa Barbara has to offer, while providing a feeling of privacy, tranquility and natural beauty.  More Less
