Upper East Neighborhood Information

• What is it like to live on The Upper East, Santa Barbara? •

The Upper East is a traditional and classic neighborhood in Santa Barbara with very elegant and historic homes. Oftentimes properties here feature larger lot sizes and more prominent yards with tall hedges for privacy. The neighborhood borders the Santa Barbara Mission on one side and runs down to Alice Keck Park. Undoubtedly, these are two of the highlights in this area. 

Unrivaled Proximity to Downtown

Situated just a stone's throw from downtown Santa Barbara, residents of this charming enclave enjoy the luxury of easy access to an array of cultural events, fine dining establishments, boutique shopping, and entertainment options. Whether it's a leisurely Sunday stroll on State Street or a night at the historic Granada Theatre, the Upper East puts the best of Santa Barbara within your reach.
