Ideally situated on the western side of Arroyo Burro/San Roque Canyon in the foothills overlooking San Roque you will find 130 Canyon Acres Drive, a home designed by Russel Ray, one of Santa Barbara’s most significant architects.
The home enjoys a southern exposure to all of Santa Barbara and features panoramic views, the ocean from the Harbor to Hendrys Beach and the Channel Islands, along with beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and mountain views from the entry and north facing bedrooms.
130 Canyon Acres Drive has much to offer by way of views, location, history and more but a key aspect of the home may be the substantial renovation it underwent from 2012 - 2014. During the renovation, extreme care was taken to ensure, as much as possible, that original materials and designs were used throughout. The renovation included a new foundation, plumbing, electrical, kitchen expansion, and upgrade, new roof and more!
The nearly 1-acre grounds also feature meticulously manicured drought-tolerant landscaping as well as a two stall barn with tack room, pipe corral and access to the Jesusita trail.
Some of Ray’s more prominent work included:
