Santa Barbara is an enclave of 250 homes, patio homes, and courtyard homes developed in the 1990’s by a California based developer. This guard-gated community features a unique “Santa Barbara” style, with floorplans and features not commonly seen in Boca Raton. All homes feature 2 car garages, tile roofs, high ceilings, and California flair. Many buyers love Santa Barbara for it’s proximity to Town Center Mall, I-95, the Turnpike, and easy access to Downtown Boca.
Within the community, Santa Barbara offers many Country Club amenities, a large renovated gym, sparkling pool and jacuzzi, card room, media room, and tennis courts, all without an equity fee or dues. The club, streets, and homes are all meticulously maintained, and have uniformity without seeming cookie-cutter.
