The Joseph and Lucy Foster Sexton House in Goleta, California is a two-story Italianate style house that was built in 1880. It was designed by architect Peter J. Barber.

It was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1992. The listing includes, in addition to the main house, four contributing structures, two objects, and one site on a 1.5-acre (0.61 ha) property.[1][2]

Photos included with its NRHP nomination show a pentagonal pool, a built-in china cabinet, a faux marble fireplace.[2]

The original owner, Joseph Sexton, was a horticulturist who planted trees and shrubs on the property that, in 1991, partially screened the house from busy Hollister Avenue.[2]

The house was damaged in the 1925 Santa Barbara earthquake; in 1926 three porches were removed.[2]

The house was restored during 1990-91 as part of the development of a Quality Suites Inn, which is a 75-unit motor hotel.[2]
