Framed by mature palms, this turn-of-the-century residence offers an exotic contrast to the traditional bungalows and Arts and Crafts cottages found in Santa Barbara’s “Bungalow Haven” historic design district. Known as the Pagoda House, this unique Craftsman is defined by a sweeping roof and decorative sloping eaves that pay homage to the tiered towers emanating from historic cultures of the Far East.
