Bel Air Knolls
The privacy and peacefulness of this hilltop community are surely selling points, but on top of that, it’s hard to beat the location. Conveniently bordered by thoroughfares Las Positas and Modoc roads yet out of the way enough to avoid the noise of much through traffic, this area also backs up to Elings Park, a 230-acre space popular for weddings and celebrations along with all types of outdoor recreation. Yet the Mesa overlooking the ocean and the Westside of downtown Santa Barbara are conveniently neighboring, as well, so amenities and additional outdoor fun are a short drive away.
Properties are not always available here, and it makes sense that owners want to hold onto what they’ve got: some rather large homes, some with stunning views of the mountains or even the ocean, valued at about a million to $2 million. What a special place from which to enjoy the beauty, leisure, and lifestyle of Santa Barbara.
