Built 1887
Here's the chance to own one of Santa Barbara's most iconic and amazing homes, and just a few blocks to the heart of downtown. This gorgeous Queen Anne Victorian is one of the first grand homes built in this idyllic coastal town - in 1887 by prominent local financier Joseph Howard - and in recent years has been brought back to its full glory in a meticulous and impeccable authentic restoration. You will marvel at the historic details throughout, and the luxurious new conveniences incorporated in the restoration process by renowned historical architect Peter Becker, punctuated by a spectacularly-designed newer kitchen and primary bathroom. The turnkey property includes . . . an almost-new roof, re-built deck, added structural, outdoor kitchen, new irrigation, private low-maintenance yard areas, several fruit trees, and a carriage house which is now a 2-car garage plus workshop plus loft space above for a potential ADU. The location is ideal as it gets - at the beginning of Santa Barbara's prestigious Upper East neighborhood just 4-5 blocks to downtown's Theatre/Arts districts, with its many fine dining spots, world-class performing arts theaters, museums, boutique retail and parks. The mid-block location on a cross-street is rare for the semi-urban Upper East, providing a low-traffic low-noise refuge compared to much of the area. See vicinity map and floorplan under Documents. Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind gem!
