STEEPED IN RICH SPANISH HISTORY, RED TILE ROOFS, AND NATURAL BEAUTY

An impressionist’s brush paints a vivid landscape of a world-class coastal community, rich in colorful history, business savvy, and authentic sense of local pride.  With its stunning natural beauty and unique south-facing coastline offering moderate Mediterranean-like climate, picturesque Santa Barbara has earned its distinct title as “The American Riviera.”

With sweeping brush strokes, the area map is an eclectic canvas of five uniquely defined communities:  The City of Santa Barbara, Montecito, Summerland, Carpinteria, and Goleta. Within each is distinct neighborhoods portraying a unique character inspired by historical perspective, distinguishable architecture, and further enhanced by the personalities of those who reside there. Active, community-minded residents have shaped this coastal city of recognizable opportunity, while keeping a firm hold on the fine quality of life for all, as the foundation.

Inhabitants of the East and West sides of town enjoy quiet walks on picturesque streets within walking distance to downtown. Urban-minded city dwellers live in mixed-use buildings and historic residences in the heart of a vital downtown corridor, buzzing with restaurants and nightlife, retail, and commerce. In the outskirts of Santa Barbara in Hope Ranch, a more relaxed yet upscale lifestyle exists on gated estates and rambling ranch properties, boasting ocean and mountain views. The beloved Mesa on the bluffs is a family-friendly area overlooking the ocean, with a relaxed vibe, awesome coastal views, and cool ocean breezes. From the hillside homes in the Foothills, the sweeping ocean and Channel Island views are unprecedented. Travel over the San Marcos Pass where the fertile wine country of the Santa Ynez Valley has produced World Class award-winning wines, and the slower pace of relaxed country and ranch living in vast open spaces, is assured.  Or, take the scenic coastal CA-Hwy 101 up and down the coast to experience the vast coastal splendor outside the city limits.

With the Channel Islands in the distance of the blue water coastal canvas, to the colorful majestic hues of the Santa Ynez Mountain backdrop, Santa Barbara truly is a work of art.
