Lower Riviera Homes for Sale


The Lower Riviera is another of the special neighborhoods that make Santa Barbara such a great place to live.

The Lower Riviera is a narrow neighborhood that sits below Alameda Padre Serra (APS) and bounded by Cota Street, The Mission, and Milpas, Olive and Laguna Streets.

Most of the housing in the Lower Riviera is a variety of single-family homes, plus condo and multifamily properties.

As you move up the hill from Milpas towards APS, the homes tend to have better harbor views. Speaking of homes, there is quite a variety. You will see cute bungalows, varied period revival houses as well as modern and, of course, Santa Barbara style places.
