Get to Know the Neighborhood



Just across State Street from San Roque, Samarkand is a small neighborhood perched upon a modest hill. It is quiet, safe, ideally located in the center of Santa Barbara proper, yet immune to excess through traffic.

About Samarkand

Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, the Earl Warren Showgrounds and Upper State Street are all adjacent hubs of activity. Although surrounded by busier byways, the Samarkand’s streets remain infrequently used by outsiders. Families find the rarely traveled blocks and surrounding parks to be very child friendly.

Samarkand Life

The dominant structure of the district is an upscale retirement community, and its presence reiterates the calmness of the neighborhood. With views of the foothills and a golf course, schools and stores just down the road, and reasonable home prices, the Samarkand is much desired Santa Barbara neighborhood that cherishes its ‘under the radar’ atmosphere.
