The Riviera Homes for Sale in Santa Barbara

The Riviera Overview

Bridging the two mile span which separates Mission and Sycamore Canyons, the sylvan uplift which the padres knew as the “mission ridge” has for the past 65 years been known as “The Riviera” due to its resemblance to slopes along the Mediterranean coasts of France and Italy.

 

Residents lucky enough to live on this ridge attach premium value to their homes because of their unsurpassed views of the city, mountains, sea and islands. Most of the area has curving streets with mature trees and foliage. The topography of The Riviera is relatively steep and not easily reached via walking or biking.

 

The Riviera is generally divided into the Upper and Lower Riviera. The default line is Alameda Padre Sierra…APS. Anything above this is considered to be Upper Riviera. Most of the Upper Rivera homes have bigger ocean views and larger homes. Much of the Lower Riviera though still have solid ocean views…but homes tend to be smaller with smaller lots compared to Upper Riviera.

 

The Riviera Real Estate Values

The Riviera Real Estate values average around $2 million to $4 million. Spectacular view homes and estates start at around $2.5 million and can exceed this amount twofold or more. There are a few condo and town home complexes on The Riviera with prices generally ranging from around $1.3 to $2 million.

San Roque Homes for Sale in Santa Barbara

San Roque Overview

Few residential neighborhoods of Santa Barbara can boast the rich historical background of the San Roque and Rutherford Park areas. Ten thousand years ago the area, bounded by Ontare Road, Foothill Road, Alamar Avenue and State Street, was an open expanse of treeless grassland, sloping up to the knees of the foothills and bisected by the jungled course of San Roque Canyon.

 

Now a built-up, economically stabilized suburb, it is admired for its sweeping curved streets, its luxuriant landscaping, and its harmonious blend of many architectural themes – Spanish Colonial, English Tudor, French Normandy, California Redwood, Italian and American Colonial, mostly built since 1925. San Roque features older, custom homes with charm.

 

For many, San Roque is Santa Barbara’s quintessential family neighborhood. The entire area is relatively flat and great for walking or biking. Most homes have views of the mountains. Peabody Charter School is a wonderful, well respected school located in the center of San Roque.

 

San Roque Real Estate Values

San Roque Real Estate values average around $1.5 million to $3.5 million. There are some condos and town home complexes with units generally in the $700,000 to $1.3 million price range on average.  Larger homes and or newer / renovated homes generally sell for around $2.5 million to $3.8 million.

The Mesa Homes for Sale in Santa Barbara

The Mesa Overview

Mesa, a Spanish word meaning “table”, has been applied to the flat bench of elevated land fronting the ocean along Santa Barbara’s southwestern border since the mission days. Stretching from the Santa Barbara City College on the east and extending two and one-half miles to Arroyo Burro County Beach (or “Hendry’s/The Pit” to locals), The Mesa is an extremely desirable neighborhood and has often been voted the “Best Neighborhood” in a local paper’s poll. 
 

Residents of The Mesa cherish their accessibility to the beach and to two of Santa Barbara’s most wonderful open spaces. Shoreline Park, a magnificent 15-acre bluff-top strip of lawn, bike and pedestrian trails, picnic tables and jungle gyms, is regarded by many as the finest park in Santa Barbara. At the southwestern tip of The Mesa, the Douglas Family Preserve (known to locals as the “Wilcox property”) is a stunning 70-acre recreation area left in its natural state, conserved as a peaceful retreat for all to enjoy forever.

Mesa residents also appreciate the convenience of the shopping centers at the intersection of Meigs Road and Cliff Drive and the excellent schools that serve the community. Mesa residents also enjoy the distinct weather that occurs on The Mesa.

City weather records show that The Mesa’s winter temperatures are 10 to 12 degrees warmer than downtown, and 10 to 12 degrees cooler in the summer. Half of The Mesa is relatively flat while the other half sits on a hillside (a smaller and less steep version of The Riviera neighborhood). The downtown can be leisurely reached with a 5-8 minute bike ride.

 

The Mesa Real Estate Values

The Mesa Real Estate values average around $1.8 million to $3 million. The Mesa view homes and ocean front estates start at around $2.5 million and can exceed this amount twofold, threefold or more.

The Upper East Homes for Sale in Santa Barbara

The Upper East Overview

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. 

 

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 upwards 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

The Upper East Real Estate values average around $2.5 million to $4.5 million with the larger estates generally in the $3.5 million to $5 million price range. Condos and town homes in the area generally range around $1.2 to $2 million.

The Westside Homes for Sale in Santa Barbara

The Westside Overview

The “Westside Story” of Santa Barbara is laid in our city’s first suburb to be initiated by Anglos rather than Hispanics; the Spanish genesis of the city was located on the Eastside. In 1850, when the United States annexed California to the Union, the Westside was open grazing range and farmland, turning marshy near the beach.

 

Today this area is solidly overlaid with urban development extending inland to the Goleta Valley, making it the most densely populated neighborhood in Santa Barbara. The earliest historical reference to the Westside came in 1793 when Captain George Vancouver, a British explorer-scientist, who was circumnavigating the globe, anchored the Discovery off West Beach and received permission for his sea-cook to chop stove-wood from the Mesa oak groves and refill his water tanks from a steep at the base of the Mesa bluffs near Pershing Park.

 

The Westside is relatively flat until it reaches the backside of the Mesa hills. Downtown is easily reached via walking or biking.
