Upper Riviera with Studio
Magical describes this serene retreat set on a country lane at the top of Santa Barbara’s scenic Upper Riviera. Yet, this location is just up the ridge from the lively shops, restaurants, and culture of downtown Santa Barbara. Enjoy a movie just down the hill at the Riviera Theatre, then enjoy dining at the historic El Encanto Hotel. Reminiscent of a Carmel hideaway, this single-story Craftsman cottage features large picture windows which bring the outdoors in, fir floors, high beamed ceilings and fireplaces in both living room and master bedroom. There are two generous bedrooms, two baths in the main house plus a wonderful large detached second-story studio with half bath suitable for office, guests, or art/music/dance activities. Under the studio is an ample two-car garage. This unique residence is set on a lovely approx. .61 acre site surrounded by California gardens, enormous specimen oaks, and expansive vistas of the coastal mountains. The perfect get-away…everyday.
