A HOME FOR THE AGES
Originally built in 1915, The Centennial House has been a fixture in Santa Barbara’s coveted Upper East neighborhood for over a century. Cared for by many families over the years, it was an extremely well-built and well-maintained house that was in dire need of some updates. Over the course of 18 months, it was given new life by the Hearth Homes Team, and is now ready for its next steward.
One of the Most Desirable Neighborhoods in Santa Barbara Just Got More Desirable
Santa Barbara's Upper East neighborhood is iconic due to its history as one of the first districts to be built up surrounding the Old Mission Santa Barbara. An eclectic treasure trove of gorgeous homes, manicured landscaping and quiet lanes, the Upper East is arguably the most prestigious neighborhood in all of Santa Barbara. Just two doors down from the former home of Pearl Chase - a Santa Barbara Historic Landmark - "The Centennial House" was originally built on Anacapa Street in 1915. Its Spanish Colonial Revival architecture is quintessential Santa Barbara, yet it was obscured by years of wear and tear. After undergoing a complete remodel over the past 18 months, however, The Centennial House is once again ready to shine among the other stars of the beautiful Upper East.
A Kitchen That Brings the Heat
Flowing seamlessly from the Living & Dining Rooms, the kitchen truly sits at the heart of the home. All new, matte white Café appliances with brass hardware provide professional-level quality along with designer-level style, while two-toned Semihandmade cabinets and beautifully marbled Caesarstone quartz counters provide a backdrop that is at once calming and striking.
Finishing Touches That Make a House a Home
Details are what really bring a home to life, and The Centennial House is brimming with them. Hand painted Fireclay Tiles accent the fireplace & tie into the front staircase, while herringbone patterned brickwork brings an old-world feel to this 100-year old home. Refinished original Oak floors, oversized, hardwood baseboards & door casings and refurbished original doors and windows harken back to the old ways.
Your Very Own Day (Or Night) Spa
Light a candle, turn on some music, and slip into bliss. Old World-inspired tiles exude ancient Marrakesh, while the soaking tub and oversized shower make every day feel like vacation. Brass accents draw the eye and tie into the rest of the house, while built-in storage and a large walk-in closet ensures there's a spot for everything.
