It is generally believed the Upper East is one of Santa Barbara’s most prestigious neighborhoods. The “Upper East” is defined by its location east of State Street and above Valerio Street, and then eventually merges into the Mission Canyon neighborhood and the Riviera foothills.
The Upper East is a wonderful walking neighborhood, though residents often do not get too far for the frequency with which they run into friends to chat with along their way. Because the topography is relatively flat to gently sloping, a healthy walk to downtown is very “doable”, as is a stroll through the nearby Mission rose gardens. Residents especially enjoy the convenience of being minutes from the city stores, museums, theaters and most of downtown. The newly reconstructed and very highly regarded Roosevelt School serves the Upper East and many of its students walk the few blocks to and from school each day. The area gently slopes away from downtown towards The Mission and the base of the Riviera. Many homes have great mountain views and some have peaks of the ocean.
The Upper East Real Estate values average around $1 million to $2.5 million with the highest end estates generally in the $2.5 to $4 million price range.
