You don’t often see a 29-acre ranch within Santa Barbara city limits coming on the market: “There are fabulous panoramic ocean views and dynamic mountain views. There is power and water. A residence once stood at the top of the hill with commanding views of downtown Santa Barbara and the Pacific beyond. This is a rare opportunity to purchase an in town ranch that is just 1 mile to State Street.” The address is 802 E. Calle Laureles; the price is $3.25 million.
202 Olive Street in Summerland will be auctioned on September 18 with an opening bid of $760,000 and debt of just under $900,000. The nine-acre parcel currently has a 642-square-foot house on it.
Well, that’s one way to spin it: “Welcome to La Casa Que Canta, ‘The Singing Home,’ named for its close proximity to Santa Barbara’s renowned outdoor amphitheater—The Santa Barbara Bowl.” Built in 1924 with two beds and one bath, 833 E. Anapamu is listed for $849,000.
The snazzy house at 136 Middle Road in Montecito is for sale for $7.25 million; the current owner bought it just last March for $6.75 million….
I was planning on writing something longer about 221 W. Micheltorena, because I have a fondness for Santa Barbara’s bungalow courts (or whatever they’re called), but it has already gone into escrow. This 10-unit one was built in 1928, and the listing photos were a rare chance to see inside. It was just listed at $4.5 million, and it already has a pending offer. From the listing: “Every unit has the quintessential look and feel of early 1920’s Santa Barbara construction. Original wood flooring refinished in rich walnut span the living area in all units. Every unit has a full size bathtub in the bathroom. 8 of the 10 units have a wood burning fireplace. Gorgeous, clean & renovated units along with ample off- street parking and a warm community feeling. This property has historically low turnover and stable market rents. Currently 16 total tenants on the property, all with 1-year CAR leases extending into mid 2020.”
