Designed by renowned NYC architect James Gauer this sunny, modern downtown home is located a few blocks from the best of downtown shops and dining. Just east of Santa Barbara’s financial district, the walled and gated enclave encloses this unique architectural gem designed for the world traveling owners with an active yet simple lifestyle in mind. The house sits at the back of a thoughtfully landscaped lot amid pear, olive and fig trees bordered with lavender and rosemary. The soft splash of the fountain completes the repose found in the midst of bustling downtown. The house has abundant sunlight from large glass doors and clerestory windows. Living room doors open to the loggia and gardens beyond. The gourmet kitchen aligns with a welcoming banquette for large parties or small intimate gatherings. Upstairs, the bedrooms share a spacious balcony overlooking the garden and it bathes the second story with light. This home has been recognized for its architecture and landscape design. The property is zoned C2 and could be used commercially and/or enhanced within the broader commercial guidelines, if desired. At the front of the property, bordering Carrillo Street sits the 2 car garage with room for storage.
