Upper East Real Estate

City planners regard the Upper East as perhaps the most important factor in Santa Barbara’s growth. More undeveloped space and a higher percentage of older one-family homes exist in the East than in any other of the city’s neighborhoods. The Upper East has been identified as a bailiwick of the wealthy elite since 1895.

Santa Barbara’s famous community playhouse, the Lobero Theater, located in the Upper East, was built in 1924 and was known as the cultural center years ahead of Los Angeles and San Diego.
