Downtown Santa Barbara
November 6, 2019

Dotted with the red-tiled roofs that contribute to the elegant views of Santa Barbara, the Downtown area is an extremely desirable place to live. The distinctive, historical, architecture is what gives Santa Barbara the name “The Red Tiled Town.”

If you live Downtown you will be within walking distance of shops, restaurants, wineries and more! The Downtown homes consist of older, one of kind bungalows and cottages, along with large, historical, impressive homes, and newer condos.

The Downtown area has something to offer everyone, however, it has a price point to match. Be prepared to pay if you are interested in living in the heart of Downtown.
