This is a unique two-bed and two-bath residence and it is divided into two separate and extremely private living units. The house is constructed among very big oak trees and sandstone boulders, and this not only adds to its privacy but also to the serenity of the dwelling. It has large picture windows as well as skylights that give the impression of living in a treehouse, but safe from all the elements. From its location, major attractions such as the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, historical sites, cultural attractions such as the Museum of Natural History, and biking and hiking trails are all within walking distances. Also within a few minutes drive are numerous horse ranches, the infamous wine country, and Cachuma Recreation Area.
