MOVING ON UP
Hook & Press is getting its own place: Santa Barbara’s premier doughnut shop is taking over the former Jeannine’s Bakery space in La Arcada—and it plans on expanding its offerings to include cake doughnuts, vegan and gluten-free doughnuts, and savory breakfast and brunch items.
Noteworthy new listings: 3,100 acres of Carpinteria countryside for a gentleman farmer with $75 million; a 1915 Riviera house bashful about its interiors; midcentury architecture in Coast Village; yet another Hope Ranch fixer; a Melrose Place situation downtown; proof that not everything in the Hedgerow is charming; a big Monterey Colonial in San Roque; wacky decor up by the Botanic Garden; and more.
