Tajiguas Ranch For Sale

Are you thinking about what to buy when you win the lottery?

Susie sent this in – she used to live there:

For the first time since 1981, Tajiguas Ranch on the Gaviota Coast, near Santa Barbara is on the market for $110 million. It now has two villas and comes with 120 cows. Building the villas took 5 years to get approved since it’s coastal property.

In the middle of the land is a hacienda. It was owned by John Travolta when I lived there. I lived on that extraordinary property from about 1976-1981. The Reagan White House ranch was to the north of the 3,500 acres.

HGTV Brady!

The bidding for the “Brady Bunch” house got down to a horse race, listing agent Ernie Carswell said, but it was HGTV that ultimately pulled away from the pack. So, just how much did the cable network spend to secure the television-famous property? About twice the asking price.

HGTV paid $3.5 million to buy the Studio City residence, or $1.615 million more than the list price of $1.885 million. The sale closed Friday.

The home received eight offers, Carswell said.

The players included stage and television producers, corporate parties and entertainers such as singer-dancer Lance Bass, who was “heartbroken” to learn he had not submitted the winning bid.

All of them planned to keep the home basically intact.

“Every [bidder] intended to retain the front facade as a historic preservation, but most of them intended to renovate the interiors,” Carswell said. “No developer submitted a bid for the property.”

Brady House

The Brady Bunch house, a Traditional-style residence near the Colfax Meadows neighborhood, was used for outdoor representations of the beloved television family’s abode. That included the show’s opening and closing scenes as well as numerous interludes to denote the time of day. Interior scenes for “The Brady Bunch” were filmed in studio.

Violet and George McCallister bought the two-bedroom, three-bathroom house in 1973 for $61,000, records show. The series ran from September 1969 to March 1974 before moving into reruns in syndication.

The desirability of the property is enhanced by its size, a 12,500-square-foot lot that abuts the L.A. River. It sits in an area that has been ripe for tear-downs and new development in recent years. But the owners will give first consideration to bidders who want to keep the home intact, Carswell said.

“We’re not going to accept the first big offer from a developer who wants to tear it down,” he said. “We’re going to wait a few days, in case there are others who want to purchase it as an investment to preserve it.”

Carswell expects to see overwhelming interest in the property. “We’re preparing for an avalanche,” he said. “Emails, telephone calls — we may see upwards of 500 calls a day.”
