''El Carino'' (meaning affection) holds a significant place in Santa Barbara's history. Featured in the Historic Homes Tour of 2004, this legacy property is rich in architectural authenticity & emotional undertones. Designed by Edwards & Plunkett & originally built as a bungalow on the grounds of the Belmond El Encanto Hotel, it is now privately owned & set up as 2 residences w/ equally captivating yet very distinct personalities. Both enjoy the subdued light of the quiet rear garden while taking advantage of the property's bright southern exposure & a shared ocean view entry terrace. Each residence has 2 beds, 2 baths, a kitchen, living room & its own 2-car garage. El Carino is full of romance, authentic details & understated elegance - a welcome retreat in a landmark setting!
