The Santa Barbara Mesa draws home buyers for multiple reasons, including ocean access, Shoreline Park, and the best weather patterns in all of Santa Barbara. The Mesa is split between relatively flat and hillside parcels, with many hillside homes on a gradual grade that provides stunning ocean views. All Mesa homeowners have immediate access to Shoreline Park, an approximately 15-acre bluff sitting above the Pacific Ocean. Finally, records show that winter temperatures are 10 to 12 degrees warmer than downtown Santa Barbara, and 10 to 12 degrees cooler in the summer.
The Mesa has seen plenty of activity over the past 12 months, with multiple Mesa REOs (featured on the Santa Barbara Real Estate Blog) coming onto the market at below-market prices.
