Spanish Revival, Craftsman, Colonial and Cape Cod are just a few of the architectural styles of the impeccably preserved Upper East Santa Barbara homes. Many were built in the late 19th and very early 20th centuries for the city’s civic leaders, professionals and business moguls and not only impressive because of their size, but are also deemed historically significant. The neighborhood maintains refreshing diversity, however, with modest cottages and bungalows comfortably integrated throughout. All of the area’s homes reflect pride of ownership and most are fronted by tree-shaded sidewalks and are convenient to beautiful public spaces such as Alameda Park and Alice Keck Memorial Garden.
Picturesque and historically significant Mission Santa Barbara commands its presence at the neighborhood’s northern boundary. Still an active church, it is one of ten houses of worship and religious education institutions in the area.
