Mid-Century Santa Barbara Home With Pacific Ocean Views Lists for $12 Million


An updated mid-century home on the scenic Sea Cliff bluff in Santa Barbara, California, came on the market this week asking $11.975 million.

The sellers commissioned Santa Barbara-based firm Anacapa Architecture to update the 1964 home, according to marketing materials from Luke Ebbin of The Ebbin Group at Compass and Eric Haskell of The Agency, who share the listing.

Sitting on a little over 1 acre, the property has expansive outdoors lawns and patios, with views of the pacific ocean and the Channel Islands, per the listing.  

“[The property] is a rarity in Santa Barbara due to the combination of classic, mid-century architecture, privacy and unobstructed, panoramic views of the ocean and islands,” Mr. Ebbin said in an emailed statement. “There are few original Mid-Century Modern homes in Santa Barbara, especially ones that have been meticulously and sensitively renovated and brought into the modern era while maintaining the original architecture.”

Within the angular mid-century lines of the home, the interiors have been modernized to include a sunny open-plan main living area, which opens out onto a backyard patio that spans the length of the house. In addition to a living area that centers around a large fireplace, the space flows into an open dining area as well as an open plan kitchen with hardwood floors, wood cabinets and a kitchen island with seating, per listing photos. 

The primary suite of the four-bedroom home has ocean views and glass doors opening out onto the patio, photos show, and boasts a walk-in closet as well as an en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub and booth indoor and outdoor showers.

In addition to the patio, the home’s recently landscaped outdoor space includes a fire pit, raised planters, an avocado orchard and Meyer lemon, plum, and grapefruit trees, according to the listing.

“To find bluff top properties with flat acreage with these kinds of views rarely occurs,” Mr. Haskell said in a statement. “It’s really hard to find good examples of mid-century architecture especially in a location like this.”

The property last sold for $3.85 million in 2018, according to records.
