Lovely home in desirable and convenient Samarkand neighborhood

Extremely comfortable home in highly desirable and convenient Samarkand Neighborhood. Perfect location 5 minute drive to wonderful Arroyo Burro beach, walking distance to tennis courts, public golf course, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and other supermarkets, great restaurants, bakery and coffee shops, superb independent bookstore. Easy access to downtown and to UCSB, SBCC, Westmont College and Antioch; commuting distance to Cal State Channel Islands (48 miles) and UCLA (90 miles), often beautiful drive along the ocean. One block to bus stop and award-winning Adams Elementary School.
Fully furnished: two bedrooms (1 queen, 1 double) plus inflatable queen (if desired for possible guests) and two full remodeled baths. Smart TVS in Living Room, Den, and Master Bedroom with full cable, HBO, Showtime, Netflix. Wireless internet. Lots of books ? Central heat and air conditioning plus ceiling fans in bedrooms and den for warmer months, high end gas fireplace to brighten colder seasons (although it never gets particularly cold here).
Delightful indoor/outdoor living: Remodeled gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances and equipment for those who love to cook (we do!) leads to private, fully enclosed and inviting garden with outdoor kitchen and gas BBQ, many fruit trees (Orange, lemon, lime, apricot, nectarine, peach, fig, persimmon, apple), vegetable garden, and comfortable garden “rooms” for relaxation and year-round enjoyment. Garden is low-maintenance and weekly gardening service included.
Best for couple or single; possibly one child. Pet friendly IF pet is friendly :-). Negotiable loan of Prius automobile.
We are especially interested in a long-term arrangement from three to twelve months. Would consider exchange in New York City (Ellen’s home town). Will also consider short term rental or exchange during academic breaks in March and June.
