1406 Alameda Padre Serra, SANTA BARBARA

Resting on a rare, nearly one-acre parcel on Santa Barbara's coveted Riviera, Casa Alegria (''House of Joy''), built in 1924, has been meticulously renovated and upgraded over the years. Introduced by a generous motor court, brilliant bougainvillea, and a tiered fountain, the home offers panoramic ocean and island views through large windows in nearly every room. Fireplaces in the living and dining rooms, richly-stained wide-plank wood floors, architectural niches, and the soft light of traditional Spanish sconces create a warm, inviting ambiance. The living room, dining room, and den open to an expansive ocean-view veranda to the south, while a sprawling lawn and other backyard amenities grace the northern portion of the property. The chef's kitchen features Shaker-style cabinetry,high-end appliances, limestone and soapstone counters, and a versatile center island. With nearly an acre, there are many possibilities for expansion. Down the hill, around the bend and one is immersed in the abundant services, schools, culture and recreation for which Santa Barbara has earned its reputation as one of the world's most beautiful and livable small cities.
