There are only a few sites on top of Santa Barbara's historic Upper Riviera that offer 1.81 acres set up a long drive off a premier country lane, with the most exquisite views of the harbor corridor over red tiled roofs to the blue Pacific and Channel islands plus panoramic vistas north to La Cumbre Peak and the whole Santa Ynez range. This one-of-a-kind legacy property has been cherished for over 35 years as the private and personal retreat to an east coast couple who treasured its natural and private setting with specimen oaks, visiting wildlife, and the ever-changing vistas of sea, sky, mountains, sunrises and sunsets. There is currently a clean, spacious 2058 sq. ft. one story mid-century modern home with three bedrooms (one currently used as an office) and three baths featuring open floorplan, floor to ceiling windows, stone fireplace, and herringbone wood floors. The home sits on a large level pad surrounded by brick patios and pathways. There is a detached two-car garage with finished storeroom and workshop. Stroll to Franceschi Park and Sheffield Open Space, wine and dine at close-by El Encanto Hotel then catch a film at the Riviera Theatre, explore â€œsecret pathsâ€� to vibrant downtown Santa Barbara or just enjoy the solitude of surrounding nature. Create your own Edenâ€¦the start of your own legacy.
