736 California Street Santa Barbara, CA 93103

Located just two doors away from the home where I grew up, this 1921 Spanish, Riviera view property is truly amazing. Loving restored in 2000 and updated, the home has beautiful ocean and island views and its finishes and design aesthetic give off the true Santa Barbara feel. Surrounded by a majestic oak tree and multiple patios and decks, there is a deep sense of nature and of peace found at this property.

The red tile roof home is tucked off the street with mature pepper trees and raided gardening beds buffering one side. There are sandstone walls anchoring the almost 100 year old home to the Rivera hill where it is perched and a private cul de sac located above shielding it form the upside neighbor. The backyard has a seasonal creek running through it and mature shade trees protect the yard from the hotter days. Like its neighboring properties, it was built with the consideration of being located on the steepest street in Santa Barbara. There are three levels all with access to private patios and balconies that wind their way down the canyon behind.  

The inside is finished with beautiful wood beams, arches, exposed sandstone walls and gorgeous pottery built in to interior and exterior walls and staircases. The former Seller did a complete remodel and restoration in 2000 including all new windows, 5/8” drywall, new heating, plumbing and then re-did the kitchen this past year.

With multiple levels of private spaces, there are four bedrooms and three and a half baths which bring the approximate size to around 3600 square feet. Three fireplaces compliment the home as does a media room, separate office, wine storage room, library cove, guest spaces and a myriad of nooks and crannies.

Located just six short blocks to downtown State Street and close to the incredible Santa Barbara Bowl, the location of this home is fantastic!  Unusual for Riviera living, there are three covered parking spots including a newer oversized two car garage.
