Property Description

Situated in a prime & private location in Santa Barbara's prestigious & beautiful Upper East neighborhood, this grand turn-of-the-century home has so much to offer - sitting on 0.3 tranquil acres, it is only 2-3 blocks away from the Mission, Rose Garden, the Roosevelt School, & State St. Comprising over 5100 square feet, this home offers 6 BDS & 5 BTHS (3 full/2 half) - plus several office spaces & ''bonus'' rooms. Designed circa 1904 in a Colonial style with Craftsman touches, this home has retained both its majesty & quaintness & offers great potential once restored.This historical home originally belonged to Mabel Lazear, widow of Dr. Jesse Lazear, whose studies in disease transmission greatly reduced the spread of yellow fever, ultimately making it possible to build the Panama Canal Enter through the white gate framed by hedges, & past the covered front porch into the foyer with chandelier & beamed ceilings, flanked by the formal dining to the left & the elegant living room to the right, both with fireplaces and stately woodwork on the walls. Beyond the foyer lies an additional bright & spacious living/entertaining area that flows from the kitchen to the breakfast area, media room, & separate family room. Seamlessly blending indoor/outdoor lifestyle, this living space overlooks & opens up to the large backyard, deck, & swimming pool, shaded by mature trees. Upstairs are 5 more BDS, including the primary suite, plus two sunny offices/flex rooms & a quaint library with built-in shelves.
Character abounds in this lovely homeready for its new buyers to bring their loving care & updates to return it to its former glory in this ideal & central location.
