George Lucas Buys Gated Beachfront Estate in Santa Barbara Area
Just a few miles outside of Santa Barbara and mere seconds from Hollywood, if, you were riding in Han Solo and Chewbacca's Starship, the Millenuim Falcon, is the new home of Star Wars creator, George Lucas. For a mere $19,500,000 he purchased a beautiful ocean front estate on 1.7 tropically landscaped acres. The contemporary styled home has 150 feet of Southern facing beach frontage, walls of glass to take in the coastline views, 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, a guest house and lap pool.
The award winning writer and producer couldn't have picked a better time to buy this exclusive beachfront estate. The homes selling price was over 7 million less than the sellers paid in 2006 and substantially below the original asking price of $29,950,000. You know you are in an expensive neigborhood when 19.5 million is a low ball offer. And to think, I've seen sellers get upset over an offer $20,000 below asking price. Kidding aside, I am sure that Mr. Lucas will enjoy his piece of paradise on the Santa Barbara / Carpinteria Coast. It is a special place. The beautiful calm waters in his back yard are frequented by dolphins, great for kayaking or paddleboarding and the beach is perfect for long walks.
