Los Alamos is a census-designated area in Santa Barbara County. In 1839, the Rancho Los Alamos area was first received from the Mexican land grant. The hills above Rancho Los Alamos served as a hideout for a bandito whose escapades were popularized by the character Zorra. In 1876, two people from San Francisco purchased acreage from Rancho Los Alamos and neighboring Rancho La Laguna and allocated a half square mile from each of their new ranches to create the Los Alamos townsite with "Centennial Street" as the central thoroughfare. The Los Alamos Valley prospered and grew quickly serving as a popular stagecoach stop. Residents today still pick up their mail from the Post Office downtown, as no street delivery is available.

Spacious Kitchen Design
And the image that follows shows a kitchen remodel project from Los Alamos neighboring Santa Ynez where we show off a wood plank accent wall framing a long window that opens out to the back yard for a perfect view. White shaker cabinets combined with calacatta quartz countertops and a contrasting butcher block on the island top. Added details such as the 2 large clear glass pendants, full subway tile backsplash, and the open shelving give a fresh and airy look to this kitchen.
Beautiful and clean bathroom design
Following you will see a bathroom remodel from Los Alamo's neighbors in Santa Barbara featuring a white tongue and groove ceiling that matches with the long shaker style vanity. To break up the space Carrara marble countertop was added which coordinates well with the dark gray cement look tile on the floor. On the opposite wall, you can see a large walking shower that features a Carrara tile with an accent band going around the shower walls. Brushed nickel finishes on fixtures and hardware compliment the clean and timeless look.
Shiny & playful kitchen designs
The next images are from Los Alamo's neighbors in Santa Barbara and Goleta. The first highlights an upgraded galley kitchen with off-white shaker cabinets and a beautiful quartzite countertop. The focus of this kitchen is the lantern-shaped glass backsplash going all the way to the ceiling behind the range top and chimney hood. Cherry wood accents such as the floor and beams bring a warmer feel to the space. The second shows walnut stain cabinets contrasting with a white calacatta quartz. A lighter stone tile floor and white walls keep the space bright and fresh. The green glass tile backsplash next to a textured long subway tile adds not only color but a playful look to this transitional style kitchen.
