Once again in 2013, San Roque was one of the most active neighborhoods with regards to real estate in Santa Barbara proper. The San Roque area tends to always be a desirable place to move into or move around once already there. The attractiveness of the San Roque area is based on a lot of factors:
- Peabody is a very sought after school for many families.
- The average household tends to be “affordable” for Santa Barbara standards…around $800,000 to $1.2 million on average.
- The close proximity to both uptown and downtown. Each only 1-3 minutes by car.
- The mature older landscape and varied household architecture.
- Close proximity to the foothills and hiking, The Mission, numerous parks, as well as the beaches.
