San Roque is family oriented neighborhood in the mid and upper State Street areas of the City of Santa Barbara. It is bounded by State Street up to the foothills and from Mission Canyon in the east to San Marcos Pass to the west. It's known for its quiet neighborhoods, and lush, quiet, curved streets. It was named by Gaspar de Portola during his 1769 expedition in California.. He named the local creek after Saint Roque and the area has been known as such ever since.

The area is oriented to the mid and upper State Street areas, including La Cumbre Plaza and DiLoreto Plaza shopping centers. But, with its central location, it is within easy reach of downtown Santa Barbara.

There's a mix of homes here, from Tudor, Ranch, Normandy, Colonial, and Spanish. The area was mostly developed after the 20s through the 50s. As with much of Santa Barbara, many of the homes have been, or are being, remodeled.

Elementary schools in the area are Monte Vista, Adams, and Peabody. The area is split between La Cumbre, Santa Barbara, and La Colina Junior High schools, as well as between Santa Barbara and San Marcos High schools. School information can be found in the Resources page of this Web site. Please check the school district to find which schools service any address in this area.

The climate here is mild to warm as you go above Foothill Road into the foothills. The area below State Street (referred to as west of State) to the freeway (Highway 101) encompasses other neighborhoods from the Upper Westside to the Samarkand area. The Upper Westside includes smaller, older California bungalows, and many condos. The Samarkand is a smaller central neighborhood of single family homes similar to San Roque, but slightly less expensive.

This area of town is close to Cottage Hospital, the Santa Barbara Medical Foundation Clinic, Earl Warren Showground, the Municipal Golf Course, and the Santa Barbara YMCA.

In the foothills, Jesusita trailhead and Stevens Park have good hiking trails and access to the backcountry.

Let Chris Casebeer's clients tell you why he's been a top Santa Barbara broker for over 30 years.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
-Chris's favorite Quote from Goethe
