Carpinteria CoastlineAbout 7-10 minutes to the east (The 101 Freeway south) of downtown Santa Barbara lies the Carpinteria Valley, located in the southeast corner of Santa Barbara County. Carpinteria is a little piece of coastal paradise with a splendid natural setting that still possesses a very desirable small town charm.  Dozens of antique stores, small shops and cafes are clustered along the main street of Carpinteria, which ends directly on to one of the safest beaches in all of California.

Carpinteria is home to a world destination surfing area off Rincon Point and has more than its share of beautiful beaches such as Carpinteria State Beach, Sandyland Cove, Sand Point Road, Santa Claus Beach and Padaro Lane.  It also boasts wonderful parks, popular schools and many year round recreational activities.  Carpinteria is also home to many nurseries, some of which are open to the public and offer a tremendous variety of lovely fresh flowers and plants to discriminating buyers.  Most of Carpinteria is relatively flat until it reaches the Foothills making the area a pleasurable place to walk and ride bikes.

Santa Barbara and its world-class shopping, dining, cultural and recreational amenities are all within a 7-10 minute drive.

Carpinteria Real Estate values average around $700,000 to $1.2 million.  Lower end condos start at around $300,000.  Spectacular view homes, estates and ocean front property start at around $1.2 million and can exceed this amount threefold, fivefold or more…
