Location: Santa Barbara, California
While Winter Storm Stella continues to hammer the Northeast, let’s take a look at more sunnier skies, shall we? We head to Santa Barbara, California, where this most charming cottage is on offer for $2,295,000.
With three bedrooms, two baths, and a little over 2,000 square feet of brightly-lit space, the 1931-built home combines period charm with contemporary updates. A spacious living room with vaulted and beamed ceilings features a fireplace and expansive windows, off of which is a formal dining area and an enormous, open kitchen. Here, a custom river rock hearth and built-in breakfast nook create a warm and cozy bonus room of sorts.
Each of the bedrooms are flooded with natural light thanks to generously-sized windows and, in the case of two of them, glass doors that open to the outside. Which brings us to the delightful private garden that surrounds the home. Set back from the street by a sculpted hedge, the property, located at 624 Chelham Way, includes lovely landscaping, a stone patio for entertaining, and an art shed—or tiny house, if you prefer—with vintage windows and brick floors.
