Welcome to a true Santa Barbara Riviera Mediterranean classic. 1708 Paterna Road is on the market for the first time in over fifty years. Paterna Road is quintessentially one of the most sought-after Riviera locations to live. Desired not only for its spectacular ocean and city views, Italian stonework, iconic street lights, lush landscaping and whimsical Frog Shrine, Paterna Road epitomizes the soul of early Santa Barbara. Walk the quiet old world streets to the famed El Encanto Hotel, the Queen of the California Missions or walk secret pathways to Francheschi Park.
Designed by noted architects Soule, Hastings and Murphy, the classic features of this five bedroom, three and a half bath home are timeless. Whether looking at the amazing views of the city and boats on the ocean or the landscaped grounds, every one of the thirteen rooms offer a view of something special.
The home exterior features a covered front porch that spans the width of the house. The grounds are landscaped with irrigated with drought tolerant plants. Pathways, terraces, raised vegetable gardens and pool all add to the livability of the entire approximately one half acre.
Should the new owners desire, 1708 Paterna Road qualifies as a Santa Barbara Historic Landmark home. Choosing to proceed with this designation may provide certain tax benefits.
