Every now and then you come across a house that takes your breath away. This is one of those. Located in a quiet neighborhood that backs up to the incredible Elings Park, is Calle Poniente. It is a short distance to the Mesa and downtown Santa Barbara, yet a world apart in regard to privacy and peace of mind.
This house was almost completely remodeled in 2010 and no expense was spared. The before photos are almost unrecognizable! I would characterize this home as “rustic Spanish” in terms of style. The size is approximately 1,7000 square feet and is well thought out.
Walking up to the house, you are greeted with a foyer and a vaulted ceiling living room with a faux chimney. Hardwood floors run throughout the home and the layout is cozy, yet functional.
The gourmet kitchen, with its honed leather granite counter tops, is the center of the home. Complete with double ovens, counter space and great natural lighting. Take two steps up from the kitchen and you’ll find yourself in a dining room with french doors leading out to the terraced back yard.
The master bedroom and bathroom is located off of the kitchen in an upstairs location. French doors lead out to the patio here too and across the hall is the laundry area and a private patio overlooking the city. The two additional bedrooms and bathrooms are located off of the dining room.
This property was not offered publicly but the moment I saw it for my wonderful buyers, I knew it was the one for them! They were not in a rush to purchase since they loved their rental, but once they saw this home, they changed their minds and we made an offer right away. There were multiple offers (both for higher dollar amounts), but our offer was accepted and it was meant to be!
