The Westside Homes for Sale in Santa Barbara
The Westside Overview
The “Westside Story” of Santa Barbara is laid in our city’s first suburb to be initiated by Anglos rather than Hispanics; the Spanish genesis of the city was located on the Eastside. In 1850, when the United States annexed California to the Union, the Westside was open grazing range and farmland, turning marshy near the beach. Read More...
Today this area is solidly overlaid with urban development extending inland to the Goleta Valley, making it the most densely populated neighborhood in Santa Barbara. The earliest historical reference to the Westside came in 1793 when Captain George Vancouver, a British explorer-scientist, who was circumnavigating the globe, anchored the Discovery off West Beach and received permission for his sea-cook to chop stove-wood from the Mesa oak groves and refill his water tanks from a steep at the base of the Mesa bluffs near Pershing Park.
The Westside is relatively flat until it reaches the backside of the Mesa hills. Downtown is easily reached via walking or biking.
