About the property

1200 square foot 2 level 2 bedroom 2 bath private oasis.

This unique space is located in the Historical district, in the heart of downtown, on a private lane that was once called 'The Greenwich Village of Santa Barbara'. Three blocks from State Street and a five minute walk from this residence brings you to coffeehouses , restaurants, theaters and shopping. Continuing for another ten minutes towards the ocean, you will pass through the famous “funkzone”, and arrive at the Santa Barbara Pier and the East Beach of the California Riviera.

Nearly fifty years ago this one of a kind home, an example of Spanish Colonial Mission architecture was designed and built by hand, by one man, as a lasting tribute to Las Trampas mission church. Recently, under the creative design eye of the artist and home owner, the twelve hundred square foot, vaulted ceiling, two level property has been brought into the twenty first century.

The upper level includes the striking kitchen which features tiles designed by local architect and artist Jeff Shelton and is fully equipped with stove, farm sink, refrigerator and dishwasher. A few steps away, the master bedroom, includes a king four poster bed, a talavera tiled bathroom, a gas kiva fireplace, sitting area and private balcony.

The second bedroom is light filled, the queen sized bed features a crewel work headboard from the old Biltmore Hotel, and a window that looks out onto an ivy covered wall.

White washed art covered walls join the two levels. A hand carved reclaimed red wood beam leads into the downstairs living area. The twenty foot ceilings and the kiva fireplace are enhanced with a view through double french doors that lead out to a private dining patio. The intimate garden is surrounded by ten foot adobe walls and a gate to the street.

You can enjoy the eclectic art and quiet before you step out and walk to all that Santa Barbara has to offer. Saturday morning farmers market, the Historic Presidio, the Mission and lower Riviera, music at the Santa Barbara Bowl, movies, the ocean, Santa Barbara courthouse and sunken garden, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, State Street shopping and restaurants.

This is not someone’s home, but a destination dedicated by it’s owners to the notion that others should enjoy the full experience of our special residence and this magnificent city.
