The Santa Barbara real estate market is hot! At least that’s what seems obvious judging from the continued success of Cristal Clarke, one of the region’s most respected Realtors and consistently rated in the top 1% of Sotheby’s International Realty® agents nationwide for more than 25 years. Her Santa Barbara Mesa Charmer at 2413 Calle Andalucia just sold at full price, and she represented the buyer who now owns a beautiful home in Birnam Wood.
The Mesa Charmer is a wonderful example of the indoor-outdoor lifestyle so coveted in Santa Barbara real estate. It exudes the relaxed yet sophisticated ambiance of the world-renowned “American Riviera.”
Light and bright, with a host of multi-pane windows throughout, and French doors to the expansive flagstone patio and gardens from many rooms, the masterfully remodeled abode is going to be easy for its new owner to call “home.”
Close to Elings Park, Mesa Beach, and all the shopping and services the area provides, the residence rests in one of Santa Barbara’s most peaceful and sought-after neighborhoods. Inside, hardwood and Spanish tile floors in the main living areas, as well as recessed lighting and an abundance of natural light throughout the home create a warm, sensual setting. Outside, specimen palm trees rise above beautiful landscaping, the spacious patio, a sparkling pool and rejuvenating spa. Peeks at the ocean and Channel Islands are reminders that this it’s only a few blocks from the beach.
The Birnam Wood beauty at 412 Crocker Sperry is a 3,845 sq.ft.,3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home built in 1971. It features high ceilings, and windows framing breathtaking mountain views. There’s a lovely den, perfect for family time, and a private office. There’s also a beautiful oval pool in the expertly landscaped backyard.
Because she represents the highest level of clientele and specializes in the sale and acquisition of extraordinary Santa Barbara real estate in Montecito, Santa Barbara, Hope Ranch, Summerland and Carpinteria, Cristal has access that few Realtors offer. If you’re interested in seeing her other unique properties that are still on the market, please, call Cristal at 805.886.9378 or email her at Cristal@montecito-estate.com. She’ll happily show you what’s on the market right now, as well as share her private listings.
