The main areas for the Peabody Elementary School District encompass the neighborhoods of San Roque, some of the Santa Barbara Foothills and a stretch of Downtown Santa Barbara West of State Street. For many people here in Santa Barbara, San Roque has become one of the quintessential “family neighborhoods” and has often been voted for as “Best Neighborhood” in a local paper’s poll.
Much of the housing in The San Roque area consists of older character single family homes. Many of these homes are smaller in size running in the 900 to 1400 sqft range, although there are plenty of larger homes as well. One of the big draws to this area though is the Peabody school, proximity to downtown and uptown, the “family feel” the weather and the many varied styles of homes, colorful homes, character homes, etc.
In San Roque, the average price for a single family home tends to be between $600,000 and 1.1 million, but prices can easily go up to $2 million for the nicest homes. Additionally there are also some true fixers and /or smaller homes in the $600,000 to $700,000 range.
In the Downtown part of the Peabody School District you have a mixture of older homes, condos, duplexes and everything that you get from Downtown. Most of these homes also tend to range in price from $600,000 to $1.1 million.
The Santa Barbara Foothills part of Peabody School will be a mixture of view homes, homes with decent land etc. Because of the big variety, homes here will range generally from $900,000 to $3 million.
In 2011, there were a total of 72 closed sales in the Peabody School District ranging in price from $325,000 to $2.18 million. The cheapest single family home that sold in the San Roque area was a 2 bed 1 bath home located at 3039 Lucinda Lane that sold for $500,000. This was by far one of the best deals of the year in my opinion. The most expensive home was a stunning craftsman home built in 1910 located at 2685 Puesta del Sol that sold for $2.18 million.
Currently as of today there are 27 homes active for sale and 15 homes pending sale. The active homes for sale range in price from $300,000 for a condo up to $3.3 million for a wonderful older estate on a nice larger property behind The Mission.
