San Roque, located northwest of downtown, is where a lot of Santa Barbara local families live. Admired for its diverse architectural themes such as Spanish Colonial, English Tudor, French Normandy, and American Colonial, it’s no wonder San Roque property is highly sought after. The homes are beautiful and unique. Shrouded in trees, the streets are always shaded, but the temperature is always at least five degrees warmer than coastal neighborhoods due to its inland location. Several great schools and parks pepper the area allowing for a safe environment for children to play in. San Roque is also the most popular spot for Trick-or-Treaters on Halloween. It is the neighborhood that boasts it is close to everything but just far enough from the hustle and bustle of downtown. There are fun shops and delicious restaurants sprinkled throughout the area. With the Five Points Shopping Center and Loreto Plaza as their backyard, San Roque residents don’t have to travel far for necessities.
