Per the Listing: “Come see this absolutely charming 19th century Victorian Craftsman located in the hills of Montecito Heights. Cozy home nestled on the foothills, surrounded by lush and greenery, with amazing panoramic views overlooking the city atop the hillside. The interior is well maintained with an open and flowing floorplan, features a spacious living and dining area, a kitchen that was updated not long ago with newer white washed cabinetry, granite countertops, breakfast bar, recessed lighting, spacious bedrooms, updated bathroom, and more! Two car garage with potential for rooftop deck. Trendy and upcoming pocket with easy access location to all surrounding areas, walking distance to all your needs, minutes to downtown. Appliances included.”
It sure would be interesting to see what this home’s interior originally looked like. Did it have built-in bookshelves and seating? A cozy fireplace? True divided light double-hung windows? We can only speculate, as apart from the roofline filagree, there’s nary a character detail in sight here. On the plus side, the property, which last traded hands eight years ago for $425,000, does have nice views and a fairly ample 5,800-square-foot lot.
