uilt in an Italianate style for George M. Roeder, it was lived in for many years by George’s wellknown son, E.C. Roeder. With his friend Adam Ott, who lived on the next block, E.C. ran the Roeder & Ott hardware store at 727 State Street, a very popular business. E.C. was given the house by his father in 1903 and lived there for 45 years. It was one of five homes built in the Italianate style in the West Downtown neighborhood, which the City of Santa Barbara published a study of in January 2012. It has undergone significant alterations, including the addition of a second story in the back sometime around 1940. But many of the Italianate references persist, including, according to the city’s study, “everything that is unusual for the style such as a single story, five-ranked with a full-width front porch. The arched windows are framed in and therefore do not exhibit any additional crowns.”

Original Owner: George M. Roeder Year of Construction: 1874 Based on information from, among other sources, Survivors; Santa Barbara’s Last Victorians, a publication of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.

house is bright, as well, with pale wood flooring and yellow-and-white walls. The windows are enhanced by skylights that let in even more natural light, and high cathedral ceilings add to the expansive feeling. As I poked around the kitchen, it was immediately evident that everything in the house is designed for efficiency, making the most of the space. The stackable washer and dryer tucked into a closet are an obvious space-saver, as is the kitchen counter that doubles as a breakfast bar. The appliances are gleaming. If they aren’t brand new, they certainly fooled me. I could easily see myself living in this tidy little home, eating dinner out on the patio almost all year long, my privacy ensured by hedges on all sides, listening to the birds sing rather than traf traffic drive past. The yard is completely fenced and encircles the whole house, so my little dog would be right at home whether or not I was. For the few actual chilly days that we experience here in temperate Santa Barbara, there’s even a gas fireplace in the living room that can be enjoyed from the kitchen, too. The location is my idea of perfect. It’s near downtown without being in the midst of the downtown scene, and close to everything without being noisy. Being a block from Mission Street means easy freeway access when you drive your car. But you may not drive all weekend, because, of course, Cajun Kitchen is just a couple of blocks from home, which means a great breakfast is just a short walk away.

y friend Rachel and I get together for breakfast every couple of months to enjoy a leisurely weekend morning catching up and comparing notes. On a recent Saturday, we decided to meet at her new place and then walk to breakfast at Cajun Kitchen. I had to laugh when she gave me the address on West Islay and then added,“but you can’t access it from Islay.” I’ve seen plenty of Santa Barbara neighborhood scenarios where lots have been divided or houses have been built behind other houses, leaving addresses that don’t necessarily describe exactly where the front of a residence, er, resides. I found Rachel’s house quite easily that day, right in the middle of the block on an alley off of West Islay, just as she had described. She showed me around her fantastic new home, and then we strolled just a couple of blocks to enjoy our breakfast at Cajun Kitchen. I had a similar experience recently when trying to find an open house at 316 West Pedregosa. It’s not actually on Pedregosa but rather down an alley in the middle of the block, between Pedregosa and Mission, and Bath and Castillo, giving this hidden house a quiet, off-street location, away from the bustle and traffic of the main streets. Any confusion with guests finding an address on Pedregosa that’s not actually on Pedregosa is more than made up for by the privacy of being mid-block. The house itself is small at 739 square feet but has private enclosed yards both in front and back, making it feel larger, especially on the bright, sunny afternoon that I visited.

I want my yard to look great, so how do I find a reliable gardener? — Yard Envy Eric, Goleta

Y

ou go to your neighbor’s house for a barbecue and notice the immaculate garden. The grass is neat, the roses are stunning, and the hedges are impeccably sharp. “Who is your gardener?” you ask, and then get a Spanish name with a phone number written down on a napkin. Now what?

4 independent real estate July 30, 2015

Independent gardeners are usually found through word of mouth, and the work is typically negotiated through a casual spoken contract. You call the guy up, he shows up at your door, and you show him your by Gustavo Uribe property. The contract can be negotiated weekly, biweekly, or monthly for a flat fee. Usually the gardener shows up, does the work, and leaves the bill under the doormat. The price depends on the nature of the work, but “un buen jardinero cuesta” approximately $30-$40 an hour. Overall maintenance can range from $150 per month for a small-lawn-and-hedge trim, weed removal, and watering, to up to $3,000 or more for bigger properties. If you want a garden makeover, a good gardener can help you select what kind of plants, size, and price works best for you. He will offer a packaged price including materials/labor and usually hire an assistant gardener or team depending on the job. Remember that these guys have all the equipment expertise and work fast in the hot, blazing sun. They work like Mexicans to make sure your garden looks “chingón” (hard to translate, but it’s a good thing).

The resort’s nine water fountains now sport water-wise art displays with the help of seven Santa Barbara-area-based designers.

The garden doyen

by Virginia Hayes

Watering Cans 101:

What you y need to Know about the humble tool t

T

here is one garden implement that many people might overlook. It is humble, yet indispensable. It is the watering can. Watering cans come in all sizes from the dainty one with a long spout to carefully add a tiny stream of water to the African violet on the windowsill to the standard galvanized one that holds several gallons of water to douse that wilting coleus on the patio. Plastic, metal, they all have one thing in common: They deliver just the right amount of water to just the right place. This is what makes them indispensable, especially now in times of water shortages. Keeping a watering can full can provide that little relief to a plant in distress when it is inappropriate to turn on the sprinkler. Depending on the weather, the potting medium, the plant’s tolerance, and many other factors, all plants are not created equal. The ficus and geranium may hang on for weeks without water, but the prayer plant may begin to fold its leaves in supplication before the next watering cycle. It could use an emergency intervention. Most of the larger watering cans come equipped with what is called a “rose” that screws onto the end of the spout. It serves to spread the stream of water into a gentle shower— good for that flat of seedlings and to provide a little humidity to that fern. It shower can easily be removed if a more vigorous application is required— required for filling the bird bath or nurturing that newly planted pot of herbs. The trick is to remember to fill the can each time the hose already in use so that that backup is available when needed. And don’t stop with one, have two or even three, perhaps in different sizes, ready for any eventuality.

dere Hotel, formerly the Potter Hotel. The club relocated to a house at 25 East Micheltorena Street until the old Calkins house became available in the spring of 1922. The club purchased the property for $27,500 and engaged the architectural firm of Soule, Murphy, and Hastings to remodel the house. Winsor Soule and John Frederick Murphy were both members of the club. The new clubhouse was dedicated in March 1923. The remodel was dramatic.

his home, built for James W. Calkins about 1878, was located at 1332 Santa Barbara Street. The house was remodeled top to bottom in 1922 in the Spanish Colonial Revival style and today is home to the University Club. The look of the original building was, apparently, a matter of taste. One critic called it “a monstrosity of towers, battlements, bay windows, porticos, and scrollwork.” Yet a reporter for the Morning Press in 1881 wrote the house was “unsurpassed for beauty by any residence in the city. It is built after the Elizabethan style of architecture, and those familiar with the pleasant peculiarities of that style will find them all reproduced in this beautiful home.” Little is known about the owner of the house, J.W. Calkins. About the time the house was built, Calkins was vice president of the First National Gold Bank, and he went on to become president of the bank. Calkins also dabbled in ranching. He leased part of Rancho Corral de Quati in the Santa Ynez Valley and owned a portion of the adjoining Rancho La Zaca, most probably as an investment. Calkins was a member of the Santa Barbara School Board. He served as an officer of the Santa Barbara Natural History Society and reportedly owned a shell necklace that had belonged to the “Lone Woman” of San Nicolas Island. He was an avid horticulturist, and the garden of his Santa Barbara Street property was among the most elaborate in the city. The orchards included 22 apple trees, seven pear trees, six peaches, 12 bananas, 11 orange trees, and seven figs. The vineyard contained 15 varieties of grapes, and the profusion of flowers and plants included 30 types of ferns and 20 kinds of fuchsias. The house itself was impressive: five bedrooms, five baths, and servants’ quarters. The woodwork inside was gorgeous, highlighted by an elegant central staircase. The Calkins family eventually sold the house, and it passed through a number of owners’ hands until the University Club became interested in the property. The club was founded in 1919 and held its first meetings in the Belve-

itant wouldn’t recognize [the Calkins house] now. It’s been worked over, and added to, and re-roofed and stuccoed, and metamorphosed …” Much of the woodwork was retained, including the grand staircase. The upstairs was taken over as apartments for unmarried members. These members paid $80 a month for an apartment and three meals a day. The club’s new dining room was large enough to hold all 228 members in one sitting. With all the alterations made through the decades, the University Club of today is a far cry from the “beautiful home” that J.W.Calkins built over 130 years ago.

Carpinteria E

very coastal California beach

town was once like Carpinteria before the world realized that they, too, wanted to live along the seashore and those once quaint hamlets got overdeveloped. Carpinteria, however, remains perfectly caught in that smalltown setting, where most commercial activity revolves around the main drag of Linden Avenue and everyone says hi to everyone else while walking down to the beach for a quick dip. There’s a wide range of home types and sizes to be explored, but all are close to the beach.

AreA HigHligHts

The Neighbors Young families, retired

folks, and everyone in between, most with a surfboard in the trunk and some avocados from their friends’ farm in the backseat.

canoes, or tomols, along the coast, using the black tar that escapes naturally from the cliffs to seal their vessels. Since then, it’s grown ever so slowly into a mecca for surfers who pray at nearby Rincon Point but also a refuge for anyone seeking to live in a small-town setting where everybody knows your name. The hills above “Carp,” as it’s called, are covered with avocado orchards and flower farms, and agriculture remains a driving economic force in the area. Tourism is also a major player, as people from near and far enjoy strolling Linden Avenue in search of a great burger at The Spot, a freshly made ale at Island Brewing Company, a wicked cocktail with steamed mussels at Sly’s, or a grillit-yourself steak at The Palms.

Market Condos on the coastline,

bungalows near the quaint downtown strip, and a wide range of everything else throughout the community. Lifestyle Sand in between your

toes, surfboards under your arms, and a storybook small-town atmosphere but with a rising food and drink scene and a regular annual schedule of cultural events. You’ll Love The Avocado Festival rocks!

So does knowing most everyone you see on Linden Street or Carp State Beach.

Perfect For Young families, couples, and

anyone ready to escape the big city for a seaside hamlet. Retirees relish it, too.

Around the Area You couldn’t paint a

more iconic beach town than Carpinteria, where about 13,000 people live within a mile or so of the shoreline and scents of the sea are always in the air. The town was named as a place of carpentry by the Spanish colonists who found the Chumash natives working on their plank

It’s the sandy shoreline, though, that attracts tourists and urges locals to stay. Carpinteria State Beach is routinely named the safest beach on the planet, and the adjacent campground is abuzz with activity all year long. The tide pools are world-class, and those seeking a close-up look at marine mammals can check out the sea lion rookery from the undeveloped Carp Bluffs. Nature lovers will also love spotting egrets, herons, and other cool birds at the Carpinteria Salt Marsh, one of the many areas that conservationists have protected from overdevelopment. The neighborhoods are a mix of apartments, condos, and single-family homes, all pretty much within at least bicycling distance of the beach. n


Real estate

T

here are few things in life I despise more than moving houses and making the bed — the former because, well, no one really likes packing up their entire existence and carting it across town, and the latter never made much sense to me at all: In an era where efficient use of time is tantamount, why spend even a minute prettying up a piece of furniture only ever seen by your closest family and friends? Nonetheless, two summers ago, I was forced to repeatedly engage in both practices, hauling pieces of my family’s life back and forth between the garage and preening our pillows, sheets, and comforters in my own personal version of hell. My newfound tasks were all part of the apparently necessary real estate practice called “staging,” in which those seeking to sell their homes while still living in them must pretend for certain periods

yard and patio through that holiday weekend, making both areas look better, bigger, and more inviting than they ever seemed when we were living there prestaging limbo. We got the house professionally cleaned Saturday and had to keep it pristine until Sunday’s first open house, for which I had to move trash cans, clothes, shoes, kid chairs, cases of wine, two crib-like things, and a dish rack into the garage, and the fresh fruit, teapot, iPhone chargers, toaster oven, laptops, and other now-forgotten items into the cabinets. And make the beds, perfectly. When it was over, I brought all that stuff back out, and we later messed up those beds with sleep. Clean and repeat and remake on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and the next Sunday. I realize that I’m in many ways lucky to be playing this tiny violin, as anyone who has the considerable resources required to make any moves in the Santa Barbara market should be happy to have the opportunity. Reasons and resources aside, our little staging exercise seems to have worked, as we sold our condo pretty much immediately. Thankfully, unless we strike it rich and move to Montecito one day, this move should be our last for years to come, maybe forever. And to where, you wonder? The good land of growing families and big backn yards: Goleta!
