This irresistibly charming retreat is ideally situated on a quiet lower Riviera cul-de-sac offering a peaceful and private setting along with close up ocean, harbor and sparkling city views. It is rare that a property with this caliber of privacy and views also offers such easy access to the entertainment, shopping and culinary amenities of downtown Santa Barbara.
Originally built in the 1920s, this charming New England-style residence provides inviting living spaces featuring classic hardwood floors, a stately fireplace, double-hung windows, built-in benches and vintage moldings. Although the home has been thoroughly renovated and expanded in recent years the quality of craftsmanship has not been compromised.
It now offers over 2700 square feet including four bedrooms, three beautifully appointed baths, a gourmet kitchen and a comfortable family/media room in addition to the formal dining and living rooms that have not lost their early 20th century appeal. Inspiring ocean and city views further enhance all of the public spaces which additionally includes an enclosed sun porch, a light-filled breakfast nook and a spacious south facing terrace.
The grounds are just as appealing as the home highlighted by a sprawling California oak tree near the entry along with vintage stone walls and steps, mature landscaping and generous front and back lawn areas for recreation. This very special craftsman-style retreat in a prime lower Riviera location is the home you may never want to leave.
Address: 15 Rubio Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93103
