Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedroom/2 Bath With Seasonal Pool And Spa - 5 Minutes From Town
Feel your cares disappear in our beautiful canyon retreat house. Hot tub, seasonal pool and extensive outdoor living spaces complement the casual and tastefully furnished interior spaces. 4 bedrooms (one is furnished as a private den/office with sofa bed) comfortably accommodate 6 to 8. 5 minute drive to town - 10 minute walk to local trails, and 10-15 minute drive to local beaches.
Close-in, and mid-town, the Canyon House boasts a unique Santa Barbara foothills location. The residential ranch zoning creates wide open spaces and back country vegetation for an extremely quiet, private, and natural environment, a mere 5 minute drive (or a 30 minute walk) to shopping and dining on upper State Street. You are in your own lushly forested California mountain retreat that is closer to town than many suburban neighborhoods. Solitude and wildlife abound within the unique urban boundary setting.
The property is approximately 2 acres in the lower mission canyon foothills, with extensive deck space, including a large, private rear deck with a spa, barbeque, and dining set off the master bedroom and kitchen, a large front porch with close-in ocean views, and seating under the bouganvillia covered arbor, a large pool deck with changing area, and a seasonal outdoor fireplace and dining area on the lower level, adjacent to the extensive vegetable garden, greenhouse, seasonal blackberry bramble, and fruit trees. Many large, mature trees, plenty of parking and the best weather in Santa Barbara complete this enjoyable and peaceful property. Wildlife is common on the property, as are beautiful sunsets, with outdoor living spaces set up for privacy and peace. Access to popular foothill trails is a 10 minute walk away.
A sloped path and small stairway lead to the 4 bedroom craftsman-style home built on a raised knoll. While maintaining a relaxed feel, the house is tastefully furnished and equipped in an attractive and comfortable back country way. Master bedroom and bath open onto the back deck with spa. Each of the three other bedrooms has a view of Oreo the llama in her corral on the rear side of the property, and beautiful Cathedral Peak in the distance. With a total of 4 bedrooms, and two bathrooms, comfortable sleeping and living arrangements for between 6 and 8 are provided (There are traditional beds for 6 – two queen and two twin, and there is a queen-sized sofa bed in the fourth bedroom/office/den). The kitchen has modern appliances, including washer and dryer, and there is a large screen entertainment center with very high speed wireless internet in the living room. Woodstoves in the den and master bedroom provide supplemental heat and atmosphere when temperatures drop, while informal dining for 8, plus a formal 6-seat dining room with china round out the comfortable and casually elegant interior
