Savor the quintessential Santa Barbara lifestyle where modern luxury meets tradition in the heart of the city. Gracefully sited on an elevated corner in the prestigious Upper East neighborhood, this completely rebuilt architectural gem offers the perfect blend of old-world charm with impeccable design and a carefree, comfortable style for luxurious downtown living.
Renowned architect, Peter Becker, reimagined the circa-1905 Craftsman home from the rafters on down to its foundation. And, with the meticulous expertise of Arnold Brothers Construction, the expansion, modernization, and artistic rebuild was completed in 2017. The results are stunning; it's a custom turnkey home of unparalleled quality.
Located in a premier location a few short blocks to the vibrant downtown Theater/Arts district, parks, top-rated schools, shopping, dining, and the Old Mission, this elegant reimagining of a classic design is warm, inviting, and filled with natural light. 4100+ square feet of expansive living space are perfectly laid out primarily on a single level. In total, there are six bedrooms and five baths. The downstairs level features a newly completed one-bedroom accessory dwelling unit with a private entrance ideal for extended family, office use, or added income.
In a nod to its early turn-of-the-century heritage, this charming residence showcases a formal entry hall, gracious living room, and a separate dining room with period features including a fireplace, built-in seating and cabinetry, beamed ceilings, wainscoting, and a sun-drenched bay window. Timeless design is perfectly paired with thoughtful modern amenities including an open concept chef's kitchen with adjacent family room, vaulted skylit ceilings, wide oak flooring throughout, and flawless designer finishes. The home is beautifully conceived for contemporary living both inside and outside. A south-facing rear terrace leads to a serene, private garden below with inviting outdoor living spaces - the perfect setting for gatherings large and small, and your own private oasis.
If desired, the home's collection of furnishings is available for purchase. All told, this modern recreation of a classic architectural design captivates with timeless details, impeccable quality and elevated style in the heart of Santa Barbara. It is indeed a rare opportunity not to be missed.
