Register Now for Invitation to New View Oriented Santa Barbara Homes Opening Soon at Bella Riviera

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Excitement is building for the January 2012 opening of Bella Riviera, a brand-new community of townhomes and villas on the site of the former St. Francis Hospital. Designed to provide affordable housing for employees of Santa Barbara's Cottage Health System, there are options for qualified employees and the public alike.

Situated on a panoramic site, terraced to maximize views, this exclusive community offers a rare chance to live in town while gaining the advantages of brand new design, fine craftsmanship and spectacular surroundings.

"The site boasts remarkable views overlooking the city, coast and hills," stated Ron Biscaro, Vice President of Housing/Real Estate Development for Cottage Health System. "The opening is highly anticipated, so buyers are urged to register their interest online for a personal invitation to participate early on."

The one-of-a-kind enclave reflects the authentic Spanish and Craftsman character of Santa Barbara. The mix of one-, two-, and three-story designs ranges from 763 to 1,578 square feet with one to three bedrooms, and up to two and one-half baths, and most with private garages.

Designs maximize spacious entertainment areas with beautifully appointed open kitchens and patios or decks that take in surrounding views. The homes are being built using the Built-Green Santa Barbara checklist, assuring outstanding energy efficiency and environmental consideration. Various designs feature downstairs offices, double walk-in master closets or extra storage, per plan.

Moments to downtown, Bella Riviera residents will celebrate Santa Barbara's legendary lifestyle. Village shops, restaurants and entertainment line the romantic paseos. Cultural centers, museums and stately parks enrich everyday life. Meanwhile strolling the beaches and dining on the pier are year-round pleasures because of the wonderful climate.
