Tudor-style Homes are Trending on the West Coast

Tudor-style Homes are Trending on the West Coast

Tudor-style homes are a rare commodity on the West Coast, which makes them all the more attractive.


Tudor-style is trending on the West Coast.

Ellen DeGeneres bought Adam Levine’s Beverly Hills, Tudor-style mansion for $45 Million

The five-bedroom, 12-bathroom property seems like the perfect addition to DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi’s growing collection of luxury estates. The home features crown molding, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, an all-steel kitchen, and a 2,000-square-foot master suite.

 

 

What defines a Tudor-style home?

Tudor-style homes are recognizable by their steeply pitched roof and front-facing gables (the triangular portion of the roof). The windows are often tall and narrow with multiple panes. Large groupings of windows are also common. Tudor chimneys are another notable element: they typically have decorative chimney pots, a stone or metal extension at the top of the brick chimney. Smaller versions of these homes may have a storybook appearance to them, while larger Tudors often embody the romantic ideal of an English country manor.

Why are Tudor-style homes rare these days?

According to Peter Pennoyer, FAIA, of Peter Pennoyer Architects, innovative masonry veneer techniques developed in the early 1900s made brick and stone homes more affordable to build, but the intricacies of Tudors still were overly expensive for the average home builder. After World War II, when the country turned to focusing on new, affordable housing developments, the style fizzled out.

 

 

Snatch a charming Tudor-style estate right in the heart of Montecito.

808 San Ysidro Lane

This storybook home, embodying the Tudor-style through high-beamed ceilings, large groupings of windows, a chimney, and front-facing gables, is the perfect place for you to pen the next chapter of your life. Sweeping mountain views and lush lawns are beautiful compliments to the flexible floor plan that effortlessly fosters indoor/outdoor living. This is quintessential Montecito living with a touch of historic architecture.

Santa Barbara: A Celeb Hotspot

Santa Barbara is no Hollywood.

It’s better.


There’s a reason why a-list Celebrities like oprah, ellen, ashton kutcher, and gwyneth paltrow choose Montecito when they can live anywhere in the world. Celebrities and high-net worth individuals love Santa Barbara for its ambiance, amenities, and privacy.

 

 

Privacy.

Away from the hustle and bustle.

Nestled between the sparkling Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, Santa Barbara is the perfect escape for high-profile individuals. Whether you are looking for a casual day on the beach or an opportunity to splurge on luxury goods, Santa Barbara provides a little bit of everything.


Perhaps one of the most alluring aspects that allow Santa Barbara its incredible privacy are the Santa Ynez Mountains. There are multiple State Preserves, such as San Marcos Foothills Preserve, which protect the natural beauty of the mountains. There are also various preserves that protect Santa Barbara’s oceanside, such as the Douglas Family Preserve and More Mesa Prevention Coalition. By having State Preserves on both sides of our city, Santa Barbara remains private, exclusive, and ever-beautiful.

Community.

Santa Barbara is a strong, tight-knit, lively community.

From celebrating at Old Spanish Days Fiesta to lending a helping hand in times of need, Santa Barbara is a place where members of the community care for, support, and celebrate one another.


Partially due to Santa Barbara’s unique geographical location, our city stays small, and people know each other by name. As a member of the community , there is an added sense of responsibility, importance, and belonging.

Q1 Market Report

Comment

Q1 Market Report


BELOW YOU’LL FIND Q1 STATS AND DETAILS, BUT FIRST… THE KEY TAKE-AWAYS:

  • Overall the market is very healthy, despite a bit of “dampened” activity presumably from the significant rainfall we received.   

  • The high-end market continues to perform well!  And Q1 stats may be indicative of the year to come.

  • We’re proud to say Riskin Partners was involved in 50% of the transactions YTD on listings $10M+.

The numbers don’t lie, but if you don’t take a critical look, they don’t always tell the full story either. In light of last year’s debris flow, we were surprised to see negative growth for Q1 in 2019 vs. 2018 in both Montecito (-12%) and Hope Ranch (-5%). However, closings are a lagging market indicator, meaning they are indicative of properties that went under contract 30-45 days prior to the sale.

At the risk of stating the obvious, there are clear “before” and “after” 1/9 Debris Flow markets so when analyzing year over year Q1 activity, it seems appropriate to take into account that some data points indicate activity in the “before” market. When you remove the ten sales that occurred between January 1st - January 9th, 2018, and therefore “before” market activity, Q1 sales increased 16% in 2019. Additionally, 2019 has seen continued strength in sales in the $10M+ market.

Keep scrolling below for “in the know” details on how the market performed in Q1, recent transactions, and how the historical data is helping us make predictions for 2019!



HOW IS THE HIGH-END PERFORMING IN 2019 YTD?

In Q1, from Carpinteria to Hope Ranch, there were five sales which closed over $10M; of those, one was over $25M and three were over $15M. Two additional properties listed for over $10M closed last week; one of them received multiple offers after only being on the market for nine days. Currently there is one additional pending property in the MLS, listed at $11.5M. 

Additionally, we know of two pocket listings that are in escrow over $10M, neither of which are in MLS. With the addition of these properties, YTD there have been seven closings and there are three pending sales over $10M. Considering the significant rains that began the year, 2019 is off and running to a fantastic start and we are on track to see more high-end sales in 2019 than we did in 2018!

Of the ten closed and pending sales listed at $10m+ closed in 2019, Riskin Partners is proud to have represented either the buyer or seller in 50% of the transactions. The next most involved agent participated in two of the transactions. Year after year, no one knows or is more intimately involved in high-end real estate in Montecito and Hope Ranch than Riskin Partners.

Q1 HIGH-END SALES

Q2 HIGH-END PENDING/SALES

So what does a strong Q1 mean for the rest of the year?

Historically, strong high-end sales in Q1 are indicative of the year’s overall performance. Looking back at Q1 compared to YTD data between 2012-2018, there is a direct correlation between a strong $10M+ market in the first three months of the year and a high number of total transactions for the year - which has us very excited for the remainder of 2019! Check out the numbers below.

Home Design Trends We Love

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW.

 

 

As the years come and go, so do home design trends. 2018 was all about modern maximalism, closet overhauls, and art-deco inspired design. We forecast that 2019 home design trends will consist of modern minimalism, freestanding bathtubs, indoor-outdoor living, cream colored cabinets, and white board-and-batten.


MODERN MINIMALISM

Minimalism has gained significant traction over the recent years. It is highly attractive to people who prefer to indulge in a simple way of living. Characteristics of modern minimalistic homes include: simplicity, open and light-filled spaces, simple detailing, and strategic use of decor.

 

 

1636 MOORE ROAD

1636 Moore Road embodies modern minimalistic design.

The living room features simple, neutral-colored decor. From the couch to the artwork on the wall, nothing is too distracting from the room itself. The sliding glass doors along the backside of the room allow for a clean, open and light-filled space.

The kitchen is clean-cut, simple and functional. Professional appliances, ample counter space and endless storage makes this chic kitchen a dream.

 

 

1167 Summit Road

With bright, white walls, clean cut windows and doorways, and contemporary ceiling detail, 1167 Summit Road is the epitome of modern minimalism.


Freestanding Bathtubs

Freestanding tubs are a top trend in contemporary bathroom design. These tubs are a favorite for those who desire a spa-like experience.

 

 

808 San Ysidro Lane, 860 Picacho Lane, and 256 Santa Rosa Lane all feature a freestanding bathtub. These spa-like tubs are aesthetically pleasing and are placed near a window, creating a perfect bathing setting.


Indoor-Outdoor Living

In this day and age we are often preoccupied in the digital landscape. Many people find themselves needing more time to connect with the outdoors. Indoor-outdoor living designs help make this a possibility.

 

 

1155 Hill Road

Whether you want to play a friendly game of pool, enjoy a cocktail on the balcony, or lounge in the backyard, 1155 Hill Road provides many entertainment spaces. Hill Road also features a deeded easement which gives quick and direct access to Channel Drive and the ocean beyond. Minutes away from Butterfly Beach and the Four Seasons Biltmore, this location offers a coveted lifestyle.

 

 

4280 Via Esperanza

Whether you are relaxing in the living room, the family room, or the study, there is always an escape to the outdoors.

 

 

2129 Forge Road

2129 Forge Road captures the essence of Montecito’s beloved gated community, Birnam Wood. Birnam Wood is known for single level living, an award-winning golf course, delicious dining, beautiful views, and an active social community.


CREAM COLORED CABINETS

According to the Houzz kitchen report, white is still the top choice for cabinet color. However, many people are moving away from stark white and choosing warmer, creamier whites for their kitchen cabinets.

 

 

860 Picacho Lane

The creamy-white cabinets in 860 Picacho’s kitchen compliment beautiful wooden ceilings and rustic tile floors.

256 Santa Rosa Lane

256 Santa Rosa’s soft white kitchen cabinets perfectly compliment shiny, silver appliances and black marble countertops.


WHITE BOARD-AND-BATTEN

White board-and-batten interiors and exteriors are on the design radar. Board-and-batten exteriors create a modern farmhouse look, delivering a charming, storybook home.

 

 

1601 Moore Road

1601 Moore is Montecito’s sweetest escape. The creamy board-and-batten exterior oozes cottage-style charm and allows the home to stand out against the foliage.

 

 

1155 Hill Road

A charming board-and-batten exterior mingles with lush grounds to create a romantic welcome to this wonderful seaside escape, where Dutch-doors and porch swings further extend the home’s charm.

Q4 Market Report

Comment

Q4 Market Report

In a year with great challenges, the 2018 housing market proved to be remarkably RESILIENT. Both Montecito’s and Hope Ranch’s high-end showed signs of record strength.


MONTECITO MARKET - Q4


BELOW YOU’LL FIND Q4 AND YTD STATS AND DETAILS, BUT FIRST… THE KEY TAKE-AWAYS:

Despite the tragic 1/9 debris flow, Montecito remains an incredibly desirable place to live; those that can afford to live anywhere in the world are still choosing Montecito. And it’s not just folks from LA or San Francisco coming here. We continue to see buyers from New York, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Hawaii and even a few from Europe.

While data doesn’t lie, sometimes it doesn’t take into account outlying factors. Though you’ll see that YTD sales are down approximately 20% in Montecito, we feel it’s important to remember that Montecito was physically closed in December and January, approximately 20% of the year, which affects those statistics. We feel positive as to how the market performed in 2018 and are looking forward to an even better 2019.

 

 

There were 19 properties on the market in the “red zone” that were sold this year; 2 of which were heavily impacted by the debris flow.

The high end finally started to sell again! After a very sluggish 2016 and 2017, sales over $10M began to rebound. There were only 7 sales total between 2016 and 2017 in Montecito. And yet 2018 saw 10 sales over $10M!

Even more good news; we know of one additional sale over $10M set to close early 2019… and a few other sales currently in the pipeline that we look forward to reporting in our 2019 Q1 report.

 

 
 

YTD SALES -21%

YTD sales were down 21%. In 2017, there were 186 sales and in 2018 there were 149 sales.

HOPE RANCH MARKET - Q4


BELOW YOU’LL FIND Q4 AND YTD STATS AND DETAILS, BUT FIRST… THE KEY TAKE-AWAYS:

Hope Ranch was already starting to see an uptick in sales towards the end of 2017, with 38% of the sales occurring in Q4 2017.

There was an increased demand in the beginning of 2018, some of which was spurred by the debris flow in Montecito and some of which was buyers that had been sitting on the sidelines realizing they couldn’t wait.

Hope Ranch saw 14 of 2018’s 37 sales in Q1 alone. Q2 had 9 sales; Q3 had 8 and Q4 closed out with only 5.

 

THE REAL STORY IS THE HIGH END IN HOPE RANCH.

Hope Ranch saw the highest number of sales over $10M in 2018, with 5 sales; the second best year for the high end was in 2007 when there were 4 sales.

 

2019 is already starting off to a great start for the high end in Hope Ranch, with sales at 4160 La Ladera for $14.8M and at 4445 Via Bendita for $16.438M.


 
 

 
 

YTD SALES +15%

2018 closed out 37 sales. This is up 15% from 2017.

Moving into the new year, montecito and hope ranch are both on track for significant sales in the high end and we anticipate that 2019 will continue to see signs of strength and recovery.
