Located in the hills above Santa Barbara, amid the purple stalks of agapanthus, bright red splashes of bougainvillea and the sugary sweet scent of jasmine, you will find Bella Riviera.


The terraced site is graced with 115 townhomes and villas, in two- and three-story designs, and affords breathtaking views of downtown Santa Barbara. The site comprises 81 professional homes for Cottage employees and 34 units, sold at market rate, to help make the project financially feasible.


The collection of Spanish-colonial and craftsman homes are now all happily occupied by…
26 clinical staff
25 registered nurses
21 non-clinical staff
9 medical residents


…and they now all reside where the soft colors of the Santa Barbara coastline merge in perfect harmony with the colorful craftsman architecture and dramatic whites and terracotta hues of Spanish-colonial designs.
