Flexible living with 2/2 main house and separate studio space with bath. This 1920’s quintessential Santa Barbara bungalow exudes charm and history, sitting on an historic property that was once the site of the Storke House, one of the first two homes built on the Riviera. Lovingly restored by the current owners, the home has darling period touches including multiple built-ins, floor-to-ceiling windows, refurbished oak floors, open beamed ceilings, wainscoting, crown molding, and the original fireplace with grand mantle. The main house includes two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, updated with marble floors and counters; a third bedroom and bath is located a few steps away, under a bougainvillea arbor, in a separate and private studio space. The kitchen has been updated with Carrera countertops, subway tile, a dreamy vintage stove, and stainless refrigerator and dishwasher. The property boasts plentiful outdoor space, with an ocean view deck and porch from the front, framed by lavender and rosemary. The terraced backyard, once the site of the original 1870's home, is flanked by mature olive and fruit trees. With an excellent location, close enough to hear the Mission bells toll, the home has a one-car garage, and is in Roosevelt School District.
