Downtown Paradise - Restored Perfection in the Heart of Downtown Santa

Downtown Paradise - Restored Perfection in the Heart of Downtown Santa


Property Details

Updated: Dec 22, 2014
3 Bedroom/1.5 Bath - Sleeps 6

The streets of Santa Barbara are lined with classic Spanish architecture steeped in rich California history. Downtown Paradise is a finely polished jewel shining brightly in the heart of the historic downtown landscape.

During the year-long restoration process of this 1930's home, every surface, fixture, window and door was meticulously restored to maintain the authentic character, fitting of this landmark property. No detail has been overlooked. Colorful authentic Mexican tiles, custom painted surfaces, vintage photographic art, restored brass hardware, original windows, and luxury appointments fill each and every space. With a designer's eye for unique patterns and textures, the whimsical furnishings with Moroccan undertones add playful charm and unique sophistication.

Location! Location! Location! Guest will step out the front door of Downtown Paradise and find themselves in the midst of great shopping, casual local eateries, fine dining and more. The Santa Barbara International Film Festival in February kicks off a year-long calendar packed with cultural festivals, seasonal parades and a variety of celebrations. Three of the town's historic theaters are just down the street (The Granada, The Arlington, and The Lobero). Each venue offers its own style of live entertainment; from Broadway shows to world-class concerts.

With this ideal location, enjoy long leisurely walks through the diverse neighborhoods with eclectic architecture and lush parks for all ages to experience something different. Stop along the way to appreciate the varying mountain and ocean views from sunrise to sunset.

Once inside, the savvy traveler can expect fine linens, professional style appliances, fine craftsmanship, and all the creature comforts, making this the ideal choice for two couples or families traveling with grandparents. As an alternative to staying at local luxury hotels, this home offers great value with first class accommodations.

The Living Room with fireplace is a cozy place to relax and unwind from a busy work week, or full day of shopping. The unique feature of this room is not only the stylish appointments, but also the flat screen TV that disappears into a unique trunk-like cabinet when not in use.

The Kitchen is a well stocked galley style masterpiece with every amenity a gourmet chef desires. Full-size under counter front loading washer and dryer complete the smart choices.

Between the Kitchen and Living Room is the Formal Dining Room where conversation is effortless around the wide round table fitted with 6 upholstered chairs.

Upstairs, the main Master Bedroom with luxurious pillow top king-size bed faces French doors that open to the enclosed rooftop deck. With a glass of local wine in-hand, relax on the outdoor sectional sofa or soak in the full size spa and watch spectacular sunsets over the red tiled roofs of the City. The second Master Bedroom upstairs with memory foam king-size bed is restful and bright with corner windows and mountain views.

With a sense of humor and a respect for keeping the original 1930's tile work intact, the upstairs bathroom with a bathtub shower combination is dressed in vibrant vintage purple tiles.

The downstairs 3rd Bedroom offers 2 twin beds and a flat screen TV. There is a convenient Powder Room just outside this room in the hall.

Because this home is one side of a duplex that also houses the Paradise Retreats business offices, guests can be assured that great care has been taken to provide an impeccably furnished and well stocked home that truly lives up to the Paradise Retreats World Class standards!

Depart from the ordinary to experience the extraordinary, at The Retreat - a prominent landmark in the Paradise Retreats collection of fine homes.

What a delightful home to spend a weekend for a girls/sisters weekend. Loved that the house was super clean and well-appointed.
