Su Casa

  • Amanda Millin

The site of a former Vons grocery store is set to become the next luxury-living enclave in California’s Central Coast region. Alma del Pueblo—a three-story residential development in Santa Barbara’s cultural and performing arts district (the 82-year-old Arlington Theatre is next door, and the Granada Theatre and the new Vic Theatre are within walking distance)—will welcome its first residents in December or early 2014. As one of the only large condominium developments in the Spanish Colonial Revival–style town, Alma del Pueblo features the same Andalusian-inspired architecture as many of its neighbors, with amenities ranging from wine storage and a potting shed to a club room with a terrace for entertaining and dining alfresco. The 37 residential units, four of which are currently in escrow, offer one to two bedrooms in 700 square feet to 2,000 square feet and are priced from $850,000 to $2.6 million. Beyond the condos’ wood-plank entry doors are large open living rooms with bamboo floors, kitchens with Miele and Bertazzoni appliances, and bathrooms with Caesarstone countertops. Residents will enjoy easy access to the adjacent Santa Barbara Public Market—with 17 independent merchants focused on gourmet, regionally sourced, and sustainable food—when it opens next year.
