This property is located in one of the very best areas in Santa Barbara. It is a twenty minute walk to the cultural and restaurant center of downtown (State St.) where you will find museums, galleries and restaurants. Also explore the many restaurants of Milpas Street just minutes away. Santa Barbara is blessed with many world class offerings: The SB Museum of Art (more Monets than any museum on the west coast), Natural History Museum, SB Mission and Presidio, Steans Wharf, the harbor, beaches, golf courses, the list goes on and on. World class performance venues include the Arlington and Granada Theaters and the Santa Barbara Bowl, just three blocks away. Leave the city for a beautiful 40 minute drive north to world recognized wineries in the Santa Inez Valley or the Santa Rita Hills.

This is my home. I am semiretired and when the home is rented I am either traveling or living with others or in another rental. I have lived in Santa Barbara for over twenty years now and love it.
Ed purchased this house in 1997
Why Ed chose Santa Barbara
You are not tied to a car here, you can walk to world class museums and restaurants, the beach in 20 minutes. You can drive to the Natural History Museum, the Botanical Gardens, the Mission, Stearn's Wharf and Harbor in 5 minutes. Markets and excellent restaurants only minutes away.
What makes this house unique
This property is open and airy. I always have the kitchen window, front door, and dining room french doors open throughout the day. When the weather is nice, almost all the time, it is like living outdoors while you are at home indoors. The front yard is totally enclosed and perfect for dogs. With the front door open a dog comes and goes as she pleases. The living room now features a new 39 inch LED HDTV and a DirecTV one remote video system. Also available is a new DVD/BlueRay disc player.
