Property Description

Welcome to 817 Cheltenham Road! Nestled into the Santa Barbara hillside, this Mission Canyon gem will steal your heart. A botanical wonderland filled with towering trees, lush tropicals and countless succulents surround this 3 bedroom, 3 bath tri-level Santa Barbara home. The original home, built in the 1950's is now lovingly referred to as the garden bedroom or simply, the studio.This recently remodeled space is on the main level and has an en-suite bath w/shower, it's own private garden entrance (the original front door), open beamed ceiling, a Vermont castings gas stove on a stone hearth, sink, counter space and plenty of cabinetry. A sliding glass door opens to a private patio and of course, views of the gardens from every angle. This space can be closed off from the rest of the house and offers so many possibilities - your own private art studio, a place for family and friends to stay when they come to visit, perhaps you are working from home now fulltime and need the perfect home office, the possibilities are endless.

" Per the Seller, the rest of the home was added on in the mid 80's.
The contemporary tri-level includes a great room, atrium, spiral staircase and 2 additional bedrooms and bathrooms.

" Upon entering you will fall in love with the flagstone floors and then your eyes will be drawn to the brass-railed spiral staircase that leads to the primary suite on the 3rd floor.

" The great room includes garden views from all windows, a modest kitchen and living/dining area complimented by an entire wall of soaring custom windows that allow sunlight to bathe the space.

" The entire 3rd floor is dedicated to the primary suite.
Vaulted ceilings, a south facing sun-filled deck and balcony with vibrant verdant views.
Master bath complete with transoms and mosaic Roman style tub/shower.
The skylights and designer windows flood this space with light during the day and allow for ready viewing of the stars at night.

" Bottom level, tucked just off the main living space, hosts the 3rd bedroom with a skylight, garden view, wood interior and a bathroom with an oversized shower.

" Approx. 90 feet of frontage on Cheltenham and access to Foothill Blvd from the back driveway where the single car garage is located... this home really does have it all.

" Enough cannot be said about the grounds at 817 Cheltenham. Cared for and lovingly nurtured by the same homeowner for more than 25 years. Flagstone pathways wind through the fern understory amidst varieties of palms, redwood, bamboo, avocado and birds of paradise... making every spot in the yard, the perfect spot, to stop and listen as the Mission bells toll their evening vespers.

" Peaceful, Private, Casual Indoor-Outdoor Lifestyle.

" About 10 minutes to downtown SB, the Beach and close to many of Santa Barbara's other treasures - the Old Mission & Rose Garden, Museum of Natural History, SB Botanical Gardens, the SB Tennis Club, Rocky Nook Park and more!
