This luxurious Mediterranean style cottage with travertine flooring is set on a hillside with views of the Channel Islands, the beautiful Las Positas Valley and surrounding oak forest in the last rural area in the center of Santa Barbara. The Veronica Springs Cottage is classical Santa Barbara at its best.
The interior is designed with the theme of a vacation getaway. The private setting on over an acre is a short distance from the local Arroyo Burro Beach (Hendry’s). Central to the City you are minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, the Harbor, upper State Street, the Mesa and all the restaurants and entertainment Santa Barbara has to offer.
The outgoing can take a bike ride to the beach or anywhere in the city from this one of a kind location or enjoy a casual tour of the City then return home for a view of the glorious sunset over the ocean from the master bedroom, great room or the tile roofed veranda.
The San Marcos Pass taking you past Lake Cachuma is close by should you decide to spend a day in the wine country of the Santa Ynez Valley or you can drive the 101 along the spectacular Gaviota Coast.
Designed for comfort, conversation and entertainment this elegant room combines a seating area including a leather couch, love-seat and side chair with valley and island views. A beautiful area rug sits on top of the travertine floor and defines the seating area in front of the stone fireplace, flat screen HDTV, DVD, and CD players. The adjacent dining area is designed to comfortably accommodate six and adjoins the state of the art kitchen. The entry leads out to a covered veranda that opens to a sunny patio area for sunbathing and outdoor dining.
The cozy master bedroom has views of the islands, the valley and oaks. The room features a king-size bed with side tables, the finest linens and a large closet. The attached master bathroom was custom designed with tumbled travertine stone, a large walk in shower, porcelain pedestal sink and mirror vanity.
This bedroom also features a king-size bed with side dressers, the finest linens and a large closet. The room has beautiful views of the valley and oaks. Just outside one of the large windows is a beautiful three tiered water fountain.
The third bedroom was designed with two full size beds with charming antique night stands to accommodate two adults or possibly four children. It also includes the finest linens and another large closet. The room looks out to the patio and a beautiful Hope Ranch hillside.
This custom designed bathroom features a stone surround tub and shower enclosed with glass. There is a porcelain pedestal sink and mirrored vanity.

We had a great time at the cottage. The house was gorgeous and the location couldn't have been better. The house has a beautiful view of the hills and it is a short 3 minute drive to the beach. The owner was friendly and very helpful. We will definitely return.
