STYLISH SEAPORT COLONIAL

**SOLD over asking price with multiple offers**

IN DOWNTOWN SANTA BARBARA

A rare turn-of-the-century Seaport Colonial, characterized by its all-American aesthetic and timeless elegance, 1532 Castillo St is a classic manor of perfect proportions. Adorned with black shutters and original diamond-paned windows, the stately exterior seems to capture the beauty of simpler times. The impressively deep lot — which is uniquely zoned R4 — includes a 5 bedroom, 3 bath main house and a detached duplex of two 1BR units with rental income.

Quarter sawn wood floors, board and batten wainscoting, 10’ coffered ceilings, five-panel wood doors, built-in cabinetry and built-in dining room buffet are among the original details that add a historic touch to the home. A wide staircase with bay window links the two stories of generous living space while a finished attic spans the length of the house, offering an ideal bonus room for work or play.

The circular floor plan ensures comfort and ease; a spacious living room with rock fireplace and wood plank mantle lead to the formal dining room on one side and an entry-level bedroom (or office) on the other. The delightful kitchen features white marble counters, a white subway tile backsplash, and a Bertazzoni gas range beneath lofty ceilings with skylights. Beyond French doors, a private flagstone patio enjoys gentle daylight behind the veil of mature hedges and tall white painted fences.  The sunny, south-facing entrance porch is a similarly idyllic retreat.

Upstairs, the master suite has his-and-her walk-in closets in addition to an exquisite, all-white bathroom with Carrera marble counters, basketweave tile flooring and an oversized glass shower. Of the three other bedrooms, the northernmost is particularly special thanks to its panoramic views of the mountains and rooftops of downtown. An outstanding investment opportunity and/or primary residence awaits!
