Literally meaning the Top of Santa Barbara, La Alta de Santa Barbara is situated on the most prominent viewpoint of the American Riviera and commands panoramic views of the Harbor, five Channel Islands, the dramatic coastline, and the famous Spanish architecture of the City below.

Originally constructed as a Windsor Soule architectural masterpiece of the early 1930’s, and then around seventy years later, with consultation from the renowned architect Patrick Ahearn, AIA of Boston, La Alta was artistically renovated for the 21st century from the ground up by Susan Wennerstrom of W Designs and Robert Taylor & Associates. La Alta estate showcases craftsmanship at its finest as you will discover upon your first step into this special home. The well-appointed four bedrooms provide sweeping vistas from every room and the abundance of French doors fill the home with a pleasant breeze and endless natural light. As the ambient days linger to an end, the fireplaces in each room warm the cool evenings to perfect comfort.

Equally as inviting, the entertaining rooms on the main level will enchant each guest as they experience the magic of the American Riviera.  Equipped with a professional Viking range, the spacious kitchen is a chef’s delight and will make every meal at La Alta a memorable occasion.

No less extraordinary is the outdoor living space.  With decks at every level and vantage point, the spectacular views are further magnified as you relax and enjoy the splendor before you.  The hand-built rock pool offers a cool refreshment for your days or a well-earned rinse after working out in the home gym.

Only minutes from the shopping and dining of the downtown district or Montecito, La Alta’s location will enable you to take full advantage of the best Santa Barbara has to offer.
