SHOP TO IT: MACHER
Celebrating form and function at Mācher in Goleta: “It’s a little mishmash of sustainable living and the kind of pretty stuff people love to give and receive,” says Alexis Gruetzmacher, who has opened the shop with her husband, Josh. “The focus is on small-batch, artisanal, and crafted.” Take a look around.
Noteworthy new listings: A glamorous slice of the old Arcady Estate; 1957 beachfront on Padaro Lane; suburban Tuscan above E. Mountain Drive; an East Valley Road curiosity; new-build up against Elings Park; and more.
