Property Details for 528 Brinkerhoff Ave, Santa Barbara, CA 93101

Historic 1800's gem in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara!Owned by one of Santa Barbara's first educated physicians, Dr. Samuel Brinkerhoff acquired the land in 1865 and eventually sold to investor Henry Tallant. 528 Brinkerhoff was one of the first 3 residences constructed on the coveted downtown avenue in 1887, and is believed to be designed by famous Santa Barbara architect Peter Barber. The property was used for residential and commercial uses over the years, including a personal residence, boarding house, health center, restaurant, and antique shop. Charming and original details throughout the home include flooring, ornate railings, and beautiful stained glass windows. The large, magical foyer greets you as you walk up the original front porch and enter the front door, with downstairs office space, formal dining room, and quaint front parlor. Upstairs features bedrooms and a common seating area, along with additional 3rd level attic space. The large 6,098 square foot downtown lot includes mature trees and landscaping, garden and storage sheds, and a garage that backs up to a separate alley entrance. Zoned C2 with endless potential - help restore a piece of history in Santa Barbara's beautiful downtown!
