Many are drawn to the majestic seas of Santa Barbara and now one lucky buyer can quite literally become one with the water—if they’ve got $4.9 million to spare. That’s because a lux houseboat listing has come to market, offering two bedrooms, one bath and 1,290 square feet of living space.
The floating home, dubbed the Thomas Jefferson, is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece designed and rebuilt by a father and son over a period of four years. We’re talking quartered and rift white oak floors and staircase, pops of burlwood, mahogany, brass, and wool, and marble countertops with two integrated sinks.
The home also features Graylite II glazed windows, Viking and Fisher & Paykel appliances, a large indoor shower with a white Tadelakt plaster finish with full skylight and an outdoor shower. There’s also a stellar interior roof deck with views for miles!
Best of all: The home’s slip in Santa Barbara Harbor is included in the asking price.
Patricia Ruben and Alan Melkonyan of Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing along with Bryony Atkinson of Maisonre.
