San Roque Real Estate Market Update | February 8th – March 9th | 2 Sold Homes, 17 New Listings


San Roque is a very popular neighborhood in Santa Barbara. Known for quieter streets, excellent schools (Hope & Peabody to name a few…) and charming homes. The neighborhood sits to the north of State Street and runs from about Hwy 154 in the West to just past Alamar Street in the East. These homes are close to much of the shopping and restaurants along Upper State Street and in a central location for trips to either Goleta or Montecito. The neighborhood was predominantly built during the 1920’s, and smaller Craftsman, Tudor and Spanish Colonial style homes abound. While some remain in original condition, most have had some sort of updates through the years, and some have been completely remodeled and even expanded.
