A lineup of all of this weekend’s open houses can be found at sbopenhouses.com, courtesy the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors. Here are five of the most intriguing ones:
One of the more lovable things about Santa Barbara is the plethora of nooks and side streets—such as Las Rosas Lane, a cul-de-sac off W. Los Olivos Street in the Oak Park neighborhood. The cute 1931 cottage at 2210 Las Rosas Lane ($1.775 million) is one of only eight houses on the street. Note the barrel-vaulted ceiling in the living room. / Open Sunday, 1-4 p.m.
Fans of an interesting ceiling will love 2760 Sycamore Canyon Road ($4 million), a 2008 house “rebuilt” by Giffin & Crane. There’s scarcely a flat ceiling in the house. And that Dutch front door is a charmer. / Open Sunday, 1-4 p.m.
Way up the hill in Montecito, 796 Park Lane West ($5.45 million) has the views you’d expect. While the house has recently been redone, the landscaping—including a possible guest house and/or pool—awaits your touch. / Open Sunday, 1-4 p.m.
Speaking of views, take a gander at 5621 W. Camino Cielo ($1.319 million), a geodesic dome hiding in the oaks. Love that front door. / Open Saturday, 1-4 p.m.
“Newly reconstructed”—and very contemporary—255 Bonnie Lane ($4.45 million) stands out on an otherwise suburban-feeling street in Montecito. The ground floor has an appealing indoor/outdoor set-up; things get a bit more idiosyncratic upstairs. Note: Zillow says the house has been on the market for two weeks, but that’s only because of a broker switch; it’s been available for nearly a year (starting out at $5.3 million). / Open Sunday, 1-3 p.m.
