This charming California cottage is set amongst mature tropical landscaping on arguably one of the best streets on the Riviera. Dover road is a relatively flat road that offers breathtaking views. The home is close to El Encanto, The Riviera Theater--home of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival—The Mission, Franceschi Park, and the world-famous Frog Shrine. Dover Road also offers easy access to downtown Santa Barbara and the Harbor. The main entrance leads to the spacious living room with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Sweeping views of the city, harbor, ocean, and islands immediately confront you through the sizable picture window. Doors open to the view deck overlooking the pool and spacious terraced yard beyond. The home follows a traditional cottage layout with the public areas separated from the private living spaces. This three-bedroom home offers views from almost every room. There is additional living space under the house with a large room, and full bath. The kitchen, on the east side of the home, brings in the morning sunshine. The garage, which houses the laundry, is easily accessed through the breezeway just out the kitchen door. There are three bedrooms and two baths on the west side of the home, down a short hallway from the main living space. Two rooms feature ocean and city vistas through large south-facing windows. The lower level, accessed from an outside staircase by the kitchen, offers a bonus room with a full bath on the lower level. A glass wall immerses you in the tropical landscaping and the pool beyond. The pool area itself is reminiscent of 50's Hollywood Style. Imagine sunning yourself on a chaise near the bean-shaped pool, sipping a cool margarita. The stunning palms and giant birds of paradise sway in the afternoon breeze. Or see yourself hosting an intimate party on the deck areas that provide ample opportunity for entertaining in this iconic Santa Barbara setting. Below the pool area, there is additional yard space, perfect for fruit trees, bocce ball, or play area. This home offers many opportunities for those with imagination.
