Location: Santa Barbara, California
This carefully restored and updated Queen Anne Victorian in Santa Barbara, California, goes the extra mile in making it, well, extra. Put on the market by actor Michael Imperioli, best known for his role as Christopher Moltisanti in The Sopranos, the 1890s house boasts a mix of period details like crown molding and millwork and some opulent Italianate decor.
The corner residence measures just over 3,000 square feet and features a charming wood construction marked by a pale blue facade with white trim, a covered front porch, and a sunroom balcony. Inside, generously proportioned formal living and dining rooms, a library, family room, marble kitchen, five bedrooms, four and half baths, and more unfurl across three floors.
Each room is dressed to the nines, beginning with the living room trimmed in gold and topped with a canopy ceiling and whose tall windows are draped in satin, followed by the matching dining room, then the gold-themed sunroom (also with a canopy ceiling), and the numerous bedrooms. The attic space has been converted into a salon-like studio.
Located at 1600 Olive Street and designated by the city as a “Structure of Merit,” the property is listed for $2.649 million. Take a look.
