Campanil & Yankee Farm
The Campanil neighborhood, also referred to as the Campanil Hill, Yankee Farm, or Braemar area, is located on both sides of Cliff Drive between Los Positas Road and Hope Ranch (ending at approximately Marina Drive). It is separated from the Hidden Valley neighborhood just to its north by a steep, undeveloped hillside. Properties in this neighborhood are elevated similarly to those on the west Mesa, but the terrain of Campanil is characterized by gentle slopes and rolling hills.
Campanil is particularly convenient to the recreational havens of Arroyo Burro Beach, the Douglas Family Preserve, and Elings Park. Opportunities abound among these parks for jogging, hiking, dog walking, surfing, fishing, biking, paragliding, organized sports, private events, and more. Schools nearby include Monroe Elementary School, La Cumbre Middle School, and Laguna Blanca School (K-12). With easy access to the 101 Freeway via Las Positas Road, residents of Campanil can quickly get to all areas north and south of Santa Barbara. Shopping, dining, and businesses located on upper State Street are just minutes away.
Campanil & Yankee Farm Real Estate
Campanil homes south of Cliff Drive are located right on the bluffs and boast particularly spectacular ocean and island views. Those north of Cliff Drive enjoy not only the quiet, natural beauty of the oceanfront and coastal hills, but also an even stronger sense of a small, private neighborhood community. Lot sizes are generous, ranging from a half acre to six acres, and most homes are correspondingly large and luxurious. Campanil provides one of the best opportunities in Santa Barbara for larger parcels of land with that “close-up” dramatic view of the ocean. All at a price point lower than its more renowned and prestigious neighbor, Hope Ranch. Home values range from a little over $1 million, up to $5 or 6 million.
