Rich in history and charm, this contemporary craftsman home in Peabody School District has been remodeled from head-to-toe and boasts one of the nicest backyards in Downtown Santa Barbara. Located in a stellar location near restaurants, shops, and State Street. In addition to the 1342 sq ft residence, there is an additional 685+ sq ft of bonus space (see floorplan). This large 2 bed 2 bath home not only has a massive loft (currently serving as the 3rd bedroom), but also a spacious detached studio/office in the backyard and FULLY APPROVED ADU plans for an additional 2 bed 1 bath ADU. The massive backyard boast a huge redwood deck, pergola, multiple fire pit areas, built-in outdoor BBQ, large grass lawn, hot tub, 100 year-old orange trees, and outdoor dining. Soaring hedges and bamboo fences create the ultimate privacy from neighbors. The interior of the home has high 9 1/2 ft ceilings. During the extensive remodel, 6 interior walls were removed to create a completely open floor plan. Large French doors lead from the kitchen, living room, and Master bedroom directly to stunning outdoor areas, creating the perfect indoor-outdoor flow. Both the kitchen and bathrooms have been remodeled to perfection with no details overlooked. The open concept kitchen that opens to the outdoor deck has stainless steel appliances, new cabinetry, backsplash and stunning waterfall peninsula. In addition to countless aesthetic upgrades, this spacious home has had extensive structural/system upgrades which include: all new electrical, all new plumbing, new sewer lateral, new roof and gutters, new heating and AC system, interior fire suppression sprinklers (which add incredible fire safety and typically reduce your insurance costs), and a 400 amp electrical panel which already has power allotted for the future ADU. Large driveway can fit 3-4 cars tandem. Owner paid to underground the utilities so there are less power lines in sight. The numerous bonus/axillary spaces on this property provide so much flexibility for different lifestyles and needs. The upper-level loft is a perfect office space, children's play room, 3rd bedroom, or storage area. The detached office space could also be a workout room, she-shed, or yoga studio. If more units are needed, the next owner can immediately build the fully approved ADU without having to undergo any of the onerous permitting process. All ADU permit fees, architectural fees, and engineering fees have already been paid. This is the perfect property for a buyer looking for a luxurious lock & leave home with incredible yard space and privacy in a stunning Downtown location with value add potential.
