Set in one of the most desired areas in all of Santa Barbara, my new listing at 1830 Mission Ridge is what most would call a perfect remodel opportunity.  One of the bigger lots in this prime Riviera location, the property runs street to street from Mission Ridge up to Las Tunas.  The lot is just over a half acre (roughly 26,000 sqft.) and offers the savvy buyer numerous possibilities.

The home is currently a rather dated, single level ranch / mid century style home built in 1952.  The current floor plan works very well, but can easily accommodate several potential remodel ideas.  With wonderful city, island and mountain views, opportunity awaits.

Address: 1830 Mission Ridge, Santa Barbara CA 93103

Asking Price: $1,595,000

Details: Single level, 4 beds, 3 baths, roughly 2100 sqft., roughly 26000 sqft. lot, pool, built in 1952

This view above is taken from about 10-15 feet from the top end of the property located at Las Tunas.  As you can see the home currently has wonderful ocean, island and city views.  Going up another level would only add to this.  One of the great qualities of this home is the huge flat / level backyard that is not found too often on the Riviera.  Plenty of room to entertain, relax, garden etc.  The living room, kitchen, dining, 2 baths and 2 bedrooms open up to the backyard.  With today’s style of living all these rooms are asking for French Style doors to enable a true open indoor / outdoor living space.

This picture above is a view of the main living area.  As you can see there are wonderful views of the water.  The living room runs from the front of the home to the back patio with sliders out to the pool area.  A huge open area that could be combined with the adjacent dining area and kitchen as needed.

The above picture is the current master bedroom which sits at the front of the home enjoying the ocean and city views.  This could be combined with the bedroom next to it that would allow for a large master and have a master that has both ocean views and then opens up to the back yard.  The home currently has 4 bedrooms so there are multiple options.

The above photo is of one of the 2 bedrooms that back up to the backyard space.  Mostly likely opening this up or combining it with another room to make for a great space / bedroom.

Here is the main view of the kitchen which has a breakfast style nook and then flows into the dining area.  The kitchen also opens conveniently onto the back patio and pool area.  The current back wall of the dining does not have a window…but if this would be broken open you would have much more natural enjoyed light and ocean views.  Classic retro 1950’s style tile here as well as in all 3 bathrooms.
