San Roque Santa Barbara consistently draws the most interest from Santa Barbara home buyers. Quality-built homes, family friendly streets, and convenient access to excellent shopping and dining make it an ideal location for many. Residents enjoy close proximity to downtown Santa Barbara (approximately 5 minutes) but without the noise, traffic, and parking issues.
Few residential neighborhoods of Santa Barbara can boast the rich historical background of the San Roque. Now a built-up, economically stabilized suburb, it is admired for its sweeping curved streets, its luxuriant landscaping, and its harmonious blend of many architectural themes (Spanish Colonial, English Tudor, French Normandy, California Redwood, Italianate and American Colonial), mostly built since 1925. Only half built up by 1940, the San Roque district filled in most of its home sites between 1955 and 1965. (San Roque History by Walker A. Tomkin)
