Description

Reminiscent of a charming Cotswolds cottage, this rare and beautiful home plus separate guest studio sets along private Ella lane on a secluded woodsy lot with manicured gardens. Built in 1941, it combines the vintage charm and features of yesteryear with modern upgrades and amenities. Features of the main home include original tiled covered front porch, polished hardwood floors, stained glass window, white-painted brick fireplace with gracious mantle. newly installed double-pane windows, built-in bookshelves, wainscotting, transom door, brand new paint, updated kitchen with stainless appliances and new flooring, original bathroom and spacious covered rear patio. The detached studio has separate entrance, full kitchen, bath, LVP flooring, vaulted ceilings, shared laundry and private patio The property has a rare, special history: it was an original Goleta Beach House! This home, along with three others, was originally built in 1941 on the Goleta beachfront bluffs. Between 1953 and 1967, the four homes were relocated from their original Goleta beachfront setting to Ella Lane where they remain today. Prior to current sellers' ownership, the detached one-car garage was converted into a delightful guest house without benefit of permit, adding approximately 240 square feet of living space and creating a lovely and flexible space with potential for rental, home office, Au Pair, mother-in-law, etc. This sweet cottage offers lovely features outside too: set within a vibrant fruiting garden (orange, lemon, loquat, and varieties of vegetables and flowers) with mature trees, plus hidden lawn tucked behind huge mature privacy hedge, open and covered entertaining patios - all in a location close to the bike path, beach, parks, services and great school districts. It's a breath of fresh air so rarely found in today's market. Don't miss out!
