The Grande Dame Description

The Grande Dame - A Luxury Downtown Oasis

4 BEDS - 4 BATHS - 8 GUESTS

Welcome to The Grande Dame of the Upper East.  Located in one of Santa Barbara's most desirable neighborhoods, this historic home offers the best of downtown living, yet gives you the feeling of seclusion, with its tall hedges and abundance of bougainvilleas on a spacious one-third acre.  Just a short stroll to the local shops, restaurants, and bars of State Street, as well as the close proximity to the grandness and beauty of Santa Barbara's Mission, you will find a wide range of activities in which you can indulge from the cool, calm mornings through the quiet, still evenings.

As you enter the front gate, you are greeted with an expansive, manicured front lawn that sits atop a lazy relaxation area where you can while away the sunny afternoon under the shady orange trumpet vines, or enjoy an after-dinner drink while being warmed by the large fire pit.  Continue down the old brick walkway to the hidden front entrance of this elegantly restored, 100-year old Spanish Colonial home.

Once inside, you will be welcomed into a classic, spacious foyer that teases you with a view of the outdoor living on the long terrace beyond the double French doors. Here, you can enjoy your morning coffee or late afternoon cocktail at the charming bistro tables while taking in the view of the ample and inviting heated pool below.

Meander into the splendidly sunlit living room and enjoy the garden views from every window.  At the same time, you can watch the big game, listen to your favorite tunes, or gather around the game table for a friendly game while enjoying the jasmine-scented outside air.

The large, well-appointed kitchen and formal dining room also overlook the pool and give easy access to the conveniently located terrace BBQ just off the dining room.

Upstairs boasts an almost 400 square foot master suite featuring two bright, inviting seating areas that overlook the color-splashed front gardens and provide a fantastic view of the Santa Ynez mountains beyond the Upper East and Riviera neighborhoods to the east.

Two other beautifully-appointed upstairs bedrooms both have private en suites that share a welcoming sleeping deck.  Step right out and enjoy the grand view of the pool and hundred year old palm tree, or relax on the comfortable outdoor sofa for a summer siesta.  Downstairs offers another guest room and a full, recently remodeled bathroom.

Spend many an hour lounging by the backyard pool in the elegant chaise lounges or under the shady umbrella of the teak patio table.  Take a dip in the warm water and have fun with the many poolside toys and games.

The Grande Dame, having recently been through an extensive renovation that returned it to its original glory, affords the beauty and comfort deserving of such a classic home and perfect location.  This home, with its spared-no-expense appointments and furnishings, awaits to give you the best of what Santa Barbara has to offer.
