Mixed-use Santa Barbara waterfront property sold to local investor

SANTA BARBARA, CA – A local investor has purchased 18 Anacapa St, a mixed-use property in Santa Barbara’s “Funk Zone” neighborhood, listed for $8,950,000. The three-story building totals 13,215 square feet on half an acre of land, and the third floor is a 2,519 square-foot penthouse residence with panoramic ocean views. The second floor is office space, over industrial space on the ground floor.

Two of Hayes Commercial Group’s partners – Steve Hayes and Francois DeJohn – represented the seller in the transaction.

“This property is unique in so many ways,” Hayes said. “The Funk Zone location, the mixed-use design, and the fact that it includes the only true ocean-view residence on that stretch of the waterfront.”

Thanks to its location a half block from the beach, the property received multiple offers and closed within 50 days of being listed for sale at very near the initial asking price.

“With the Funk Zone continuing to be in high demand and renewed interest in the stretch of waterfront between State and Garden,” DeJohn added, “this property is in an ideal location and understandably generated a lot of interest.”
