Annual Home & Garden Tour set for April 20
Carpinteria Beautiful has released this year’s line-up for the annual Home & Garden Tour, scheduled, as always, for the last Saturday in April. The ﬁve distinctive homes showcase different facets of Carpinteria’s unique lifestyle from modern farmhouse to an exquisite little gem by the Salt Marsh. Visitors will see how one family found room to grow by adding a craftsman-inspired second story to their former tract house. They will visit a classic Concha Loma home sitting serenely on the edge of Carpinteria Creek and they’ll be able to catch sight of the surfers from an elegant Rincon Point home once featured in Architectural Digest. “We’re thrilled to be back after last year’s disaster-related cancellation,” said Susan Everett, tour committee chair. The tour, Carpinteria Beautiful’s main fundraiser, ﬁnances Carpinteria Beautiful’s on-going work in the community, which has included the tile murals at Linden Plaza, John Wullbrandt’s two public murals, the Millstone Fountain by the Friends of Library Bookstore, the Community Garden fountain, the Ping-Pong table at the beach and the dolphin sculpture at Tomol Park. This year’s tour is dedicated to long-time Carpinteria Beautiful member Donnie Nair, who conceived of and led the tour for 20 years before retiring this year. This year’s selfguided tour is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at carpinteriabeautiful.org, the Carpinteria Farmers Market or at store locations throughout Carpinteria.

Little gem by the sea on Ash Avenue
A block from the beach, with a light-ﬁlled and beach-inspired décor, this little gem is big on wow. This Ash Avenue home features pitched ceilings, a stacked stone wood/ gas burning ﬁreplace, custom gourmet kitchen with soap-stone island, skylights and designer tile work. The coastal vibe on the outdoor deck extends the living, dining and entertainment space and is great for taking in the last rays of sunshine.
Remodel for a growing family in Camino Trillado
This home is located in one of Carpinteria’s most family-friendly neighborhoods, Camino Trillado. The recently remodeled craftsman-inspired home is a wonderful example of how to accommodate a growing family without having to move to a new house. By adding a second story, the homeowners gained two additional bedrooms, a third bath and a sun-lit family room/kid’s playroom with breathtaking mountain views. The original lower level features an updated kitchen, new oak ﬂoors and a bright master suite that opens through French doors to a kid-friendly backyard oasis.

This 1937 modern-farmhouse was the ﬁrst home ever built on Shepard Mesa. This picturesque home is framed by a beautiful garden and a darling lily pond. Although the homeowner has lovingly preserved many original features, the home also boasts plenty of modern updates. Recently completed, an 1,800 sq ft addition of a master retreat blends both the modern and historical features with a Japanese soaking tub and spacious dressing room. This new wing of the home takes full advantage of the gorgeous ocean and pool views. The residence is spread out over three acres and includes a barn and a bunk house.
