This charming 1929 English Tudor with a British Colonial-style flare was significantly expanded in 1991 and lovingly remodeled by the current owners. Boasting 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a large family room, detached guest studio, separate office, 2-car garage and ample storage, this property offers over 2,700sq.ft. of flexible living space in a magical and private setting on a quiet San Roque street.
The gracious living room features a large picture window that captures the beauty of the private front yard. A brick and stucco fireplace, arched doorways, high coved ceiling, and oak floors highlight the charming space, which opens to a formal dining room.
Featuring a sunny breakfast nook and handcrafted P.J. Milligan cabinets, the chef’s kitchen was remodeled in 2002 to include a Wolf range, SubZero refrigerator, farmhouse sink, and gorgeous granite countertops. One of the highlights of the kitchen is a hand-painted mural over the stove, which is believed to depict the original home in the center of a lemon orchard. The kitchen also includes exterior access to the side yard and driveway.
The heart of the home is a spacious and sunny family room that includes large, built-in cabinets, hardwood floors, ample windows and French door access to both the side deck and the lush rear yard. The first floor of the home is completed by a bedroom with French door access to the side deck, as well as a den (or possible 4th bedroom) and a full, remodeled bathroom.
The second floor features a spacious and romantic master bedroom suite with a dramatic, vaulted wood ceiling and a sunny balcony. The space also features a separate office, walk-in closet with ample storage, and an en suite bath. The second bedroom also features a vaulted ceiling, a charming balcony overlooking the magical rear yard, and an en suite bath.
A guest studio with a full (unpermitted) bathroom is located towards the rear of the property. The studio features ample windows and French door access to a private patio and the rear yard. The property is completed by a 2-car garage and a second-story office/bonus room featuring mountain views and access via an exterior spiral staircase.
This unique property is located in the Peabody Charter Elementary School attendance area and is close to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, as well as many popular “Upper State” destinations. For more information and photos, visit www.sanroquetudor.com
