Homes for sale on the Riviera

The Riviera is an enchanting neighborhood of lush greenery set upon a steep canyon ridge just north of downtown Santa Barbara and west of Montecito.  The setting here exemplifies European-style charm, with its narrow, winding roads and an abundance of hand laid stonework.  Reminiscent of the Mediterranean coast, this area is, after all, the reason Santa Barbara is known as the American Riviera.
