Bel Air Knolls Real Estate

Real estate in the Bel Air Knolls neighborhood offers hilltop properties situated in the midst of all that’s best about Santa Barbara living. These homes are mere minutes from the beach, but are just elevated and inland enough to avoid the fog line that so often envelops coastal homes. Though the ocean is not in view, incredible vistas of the Santa Ynez mountains can be seen from many homes.

The neighborhood also has very convenient access to the 101 Freeway and shopping on upper State Street, while its hilly, tucked away location and lack of through-traffic keeps it a quiet and peaceful place to live. With development along Las Positas Road kept at bay, and the vast and scenic Elings Park bordering it to the south, Bel Air Knolls is a residential community surrounded by Santa Barbara’s natural beauty.

The Bel Air Knolls real estate market is is also well regarded for its consistent inventory of homes below the $1 million price tag that still offer 2,000+ square feet of living space. Great deals abound, though buyers often see the homes in their current outward appearance as starting points for future aesthetic improvements. With lot sizes and homes so spacious, a little imagination and investment is all it takes to transform some of these properties into a buyer’s dream home.
