This townhouse is in a charming Queen Anne Victorian duplex situated behind our 140 year old home, one of Santa Barbara's oldest Victorians, which was built in the mid 1800's. We restored the house in 1998.
Completed in 2001 in the same style as the main house, the duplex boasts a tower, complete with “witches cap”. The townhouse is tastefully furnished with an eclectic mix of family heirlooms and craftsman style furniture.
Features include hand-inlaid wood floors, a bay window/window-seat, and a fireplace in the living room.
The covered deck is cozily ensconced in the tower creating a wonderful outdoor room. Situated just off the kitchen, the deck can become a private retreat for morning coffee, an outdoor room that's just perfect for a luncheon, a bridge game, an intimate candlelit dinner, or a nightcap.
This unit has 2 bedroom and 2 1/2 baths. It offers sleeping capacity for up to 6. There is a king bed in the master; and twin beds in the second bedroom. The living room couch is a futon that can be made into a double bed. The two bedrooms are upstairs above the living area and have cathedral ceilings.
Pet Friendly: We are pet friendly for small to medium dogs, only. We have found that too many people are allergic to cats; but not dogs. So, we limit pets to dogs in order to be able to accommodate everyone who might inquire.

It's an easy drive to 'wine country' in the Santa Ynez valley - vineyards and wineries where you can enjoy wine tastings, including the Fess Parker Winery, where you can enjoy Shakespeare on the lawn in the summer. Musicians perform before the play and during intermission. It's a wonderful event for families, who bring their children, food, and blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy the evening's performance. Some performances are contemporized; others, are performed in the styles of Shakespearean theater.
