Visit Santa Barbara Homes For Sale

Though Spanish and Mediterranean-inspired homes for sale predominate on the Santa Barbara real estate market, the area provides access to an eclectic mix of home styles that are as diverse as the population that calls this County home. Regardless of size or design features, though, what all Santa Barbara homes for sale tend to share is a tendency toward features designed to take maximum advantage the winning combination of sunny days and coastal breezes. Even more modest single-family homes here offer oversized windows and skylights, exterior features like wrap-around decking and patios, and even swimming pools and incredible water features.

If you're in the market for ultra-luxury, you'll be tremendously pleased with the options you'll find in places like Montecito or along the foothills of Santa Ynez. These stellar properties rival any estate you'll find in California, often have significant historical or architectural significance, and include a host of opulent features including:

  • Guest housing
  • Fountains
  • Tennis courts
  • Summer kitchens
  • Coastal views

Living in Santa Barbara, CA

It's hard to put Santa Barbara into words because so much of what attracts people to this coastal paradise defies easy description. The backdrop of Santa Barbara is stunningly beautiful, awesome in the truest sense of the word. With weather that calls to mind the Aegean Sea, and plenty to see and do, the Santa Barbara real estate market is defined by comfort and leisure. On sunny days—and there are plenty of them—you'll find yourself touring the vineyards of Santa Ynez valley, watching the whales from a spot along the beaches of Shoreline Park, or perhaps doing a little shopping along famed State Street. The latter is one of the country's most pedestrian-friendly downtowns, and is home to retailers from around the region and across the world. When the strolling is done, restaurants like Opal, Jane, and Enterprise Fish Co. make for a perfect spot to recharge your batteries.

Many of the most popular communities in Santa Barbara County—including Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, and Goleta—lay along the scenic Coastal Highway, making it easy to travel south toward Venute and Los Angeles or northward to San Luis Obispo. Santa Barbara also has a strong tech scene, a hatchery for some of California's most exciting startups, and terrific post-secondary schools like UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara City College, and Westmont College. If you dream of surfing before work or spending your evenings chilling on a beach, then Santa Barbara County has plenty to offer you.
