Iconic Samarkand Now is your golden opportunity to own an iconic piece of Santa Barbara history! This beautiful single-level home was designed, built, and lived in by Earle Lewis Ovington, the renown first official US Airmail Pilot. Our very own Santa Barbara airport terminal was also named after this celebrity who was famous for his innovations, attended MIT in 1900, and was the first developer of the still highly sought-after Samarkand neighborhood. This home was one of the first to be built on Hermosa Road -- the ''beautiful'' street and continues to maintain its charm today.Lovingly maintained by one family for the past 50 years, this Spanish-style single level home features 4 bedrooms, (one with its own exterior access) and 2.5 baths. The spacious living room features a lovely wood/gas burning fireplace, beamed ceiling, and a view to the inviting porch and greenery of the yard. The original hardwood floors grace most of the home and flow into the spacious kitchen. Further complementing the living space is a large dining room surrounded by windows providing abundant natural light into the space. An inviting porch at the back of the home further expands the living space. A newly painted exterior further complements this charming home.
The unique basement offers a gym, a finished workshop, a den with a fireplace, and a shed. Views of the mountains, a spacious yard, and newly painted exterior complete the appeal of the property. The convenience of the Samarkand neighborhood avails itself of supermarkets, great restaurants, and shops -- all just minutes away.
