Homes for Sale in The West Side- Overview
The West Side of Santa Barbara is a sweet area filled with many special cottages, period revival-style homes, and a spattering of newer properties. It has easy access to Highway 101, downtown Santa Barbara, The Harbor, and the Mesa, making it a very convenient place to call home.
Compass points are confusing in Santa Barbara due to the way the coast bends in the region so many of use geographical markers. The West Side area would be on the ocean side of the 101 beneath the Mesa and loosely bounded by Las Positas and Cliff Drive.
The West Side is largely a flat region that was farmland in the late 1800s and became more residential in the 1920s. Its historical boasts include being home to Santa Barbara’s first winery and our town’s first Polo Fields. (Walker Tompkins Santa Barbara Neighborhoods)
