Upper East Side

Enchanting estates and historic haunts.

The crown jewel of character. Considered one of Santa Barbara’s first luxury neighborhoods, the initial opulent homes here were built on the Upper East Side due to its close proximity to the Old Mission. And many of those still exist to this day. Traditional in their beauty yet modern in their style, the area is where a wide array of historic architecture and buildings gather to suit its visitors’ most eclectic tastes. From the Spanish-style red roofs to Mission, Victorian, and American Colonial Revivals, there is something for everyone when you head up and east from downtown. Learn More
