Charming Mission Canyon Craftsman

Charming Mission Canyon Craftsman

Steeped in history and beautifully updated, this turn-of-the-century Craftsman boasting classic architectural details has stood sentry over the entrance to Mission Canyon for almost 100 years. Originally owned by Rev. George Francis Weld and home to the historic “Riven Rock” landmark, the residence has retained its original charm while being carefully renovated by the current owners to provide modern conveniences and amenities, as well as an open-concept design.

Enjoy beautifully crafted stonework as you approach the home and enter the light-filled foyer. A stately center fireplace serves as the focal point of both the living room and the spacious dining room, providing warmth and character throughout and highlighting the rich walnut flooring. The dining room opens through bi-folding French doors to a stone patio with soothing water feature and the magical rear yard. The flow is perfect for entertaining large groups, or the space can easily be made warm and cozy for more intimate gatherings.

A chef’s kitchen sits adjacent to the dining room providing convenient access for both indoor and outdoor dining. A six-burner Viking stove is highlighted by a well-designed tile backsplash, while custom alder cabinetry holds other Viking Professional-series appliances. Warm soapstone countertops and a Shaw’s Original farmhouse sink finish the look. The lower level is completed by two charming bedrooms that share a jack-n’-jill marble bathroom with tub, a striking powder room with antique vanity, and a third bedroom and full bath that enjoy a private entrance off the kitchen.

The second level of the home is dedicated completely to master living. The cozy master suite is a private sanctuary that enjoys a center fireplace flanked by French doors opening to a south view balcony. The room is completed by a walk-in closet and a soothing travertine master bath. A private sitting room and library is tucked away from the bedroom and is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book or enjoy a cool beverage from the adjoining wet bar while gazing through French doors at the view below.

Situated on just over 1/2 acre and ideally located close to the Tennis Club of Santa Barbara, the Museum of Natural History, the Botanic Garden and the historic Old Mission, the offering includes a charming sandstone outbuilding (think wine grotto!), a horse corral and plenty of space to create your dream environment and steward this magical property into the next century.
