Last week was a busy week for luxury listings. There were 6 New Listings and 3 of them were over $16M, as well the 1 Closed Sale we saw last week closed off-market for $22.5M.
The most expensive property we have seen for some time, 570 Hot Springs Road, came on the market at $59.9M. This +/- 20,000 square foot estate underwent a 15-year restoration completed in 2017. It was thoughtfully finished with hand crafted custom details using 17th & 18th century reclaimed building materials curated throughout Europe, this rare estate is a unique, legacy property.

Set Sail ⛵️
The luxurious Channel Cat has been refreshed and is worth the second look!
Touted as the largest luxury sailing catamaran on the West Coast, the Channel Cat draws all manner of revelers for lavish sails out of Santa Barbara. The pearly white 85-foot vessel, which accommodates as many as 140 guests, boasts equally stunning interiors, thanks to Daryl Stegall of Stegall Studios. Owners Jen and Skip Abed recently tapped the Santa Barbara–based designer to create a “coastal, yet sophisticated vibe,” says Stegall, inspired by the surroundings. Neutral-toned custom furnishings, seagrass tables by Jamie Young, wingback chairs from Palecek, Bernhardt rattan swivel chairs, and rope furniture from Azzurro Living outfit the spacious seating areas. Brass detailing adds a touch of sophistication to textured and natural elements. “From the bow to the salon to the stern, all the design elements are seamless, giving us the flexibility to arrange the areas as is best suited for our guests,” says Jen Abed.
