Mission Canyon | Charming | Views | Deck | Cottage
Tucked into Mission Canyon, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage has now become the very first home to a young family. When I first met my clients, who were referred by past clients, they were considering whether or not to explore condos, new construction offerings or single-family residences. We discussed the pros and cons of all of the options; Santa Barbara versus Goleta house sizes, far off school district decisions, weekend warrior projects versus brand new build outs. The monthly costs of HOA amenities that tantalized with pools yet also with very close proximity to neighbors. We viewed several properties together (before the start of social distancing) and left Goleta to meet at a property on Foothill Road…
This property was all about the deck. The deck made this whole house. The access to outside. The views over Santa Barbara. The additional space. This deck will have so many memories made on it. Coffees sipped, books read, dinners shared, discussions had and little feet pitter pattered on under the shade of the Sapote tree…this additional “room” really made this house become a home.
There is a formal dining room with a bay window, a living room with a cozy fireplace and charming built-ins plus hardwood floors throughout. Outside are expansive views of Saint Anthony’s Chapel, the islands, and city views north towards Goleta. In addition, there is ample storage under the deck, a backyard and a one-car garage.
This property is a dream come true for my clients. Their very first house in Santa Barbara which is a BIG deal! They stuck with their dream and didn’t give up and tried several ways to make it happen and now they are homeowners. I am proud to report that I just received the call from our escrow officer that everything is recorded, and escrow is officially closed. Welcome home and thank you for putting your trust in me to represent you. I look forward to seeing what you do to make the house your home and all of the memories that you make there.
