There are many beautiful houses in Santa Barbara, but there aren’t a lot of cool ones—and 2010 Las Tunas Road ($4.875 million) has coolness in spades. Built in 1958 by architect Peter Edwards of the famed Edwards & Plunkett as his personal residence, this one-of-a-kind property is also turnkey, having just received a thorough restoration. So while the lines are classic, evoking Santa Barbara the way it used to be, everything else is new, including the infrastructure and landscaping.
What takes the property to the next level is the setting: the house is arranged around a broad, bright yard perfect for entertaining, and wherever you stand, you’re sure to be awed by the backdrop of massive oaks and deep mountain views, spanning from Carpinteria to the Gaviota coast. Moreover, because the property is 1.9 acres, you have actual land and space to work with—perhaps adding a pool or, given the agricultural water meter, an orchard.
You should see 2010 Las Tunas Road in person: go to the open house today (Saturday, May 14), from noon to 4 p.m., or call listing agent Troy G Hoidal at 805-689-6808. And be sure to check out the secret art studio/office behind the carport….
