A collaboration between Santiago and his business partner, David Herskowitz, with whom he owns Cutting Edge Developments, the approximately 15,600-square-foot residence, which boasts views from Downtown to the ocean, is a picture-perfect example of elevated Southern California living.
Showcasing a warm, traditional-style exterior and the highest caliber of contemporary European finishes throughout, towering glass doors open to grand-scale living spaces. French oak and marble flooring reclaimed from villas in Spain are complemented by sliding walls of glass for a seamless transition to phenomenal outdoor living areas. Primed for year-round entertaining, the home's expansive backyard features a parklike lawn, heated loggia with dining and seating areas, kitchen with built-in barbecue and beer taps, and an oversized swimming pool and spa.
During the invite-only event on Saturday, June 24, guests were treated to signature vodka cocktails, courtesy of sponsor Belvedere, and savory hors d'oeuvres while they explored the home, complete with elegant floral arrangements by Francesca Blume. Guests mingled on the sprawling rooftop terrace overlooking the twinkling city lights. Others took to the expansive daylit lower level, which holds a fully soundproofed theater, 1,500-bottle wine cellar, wine tasting and cigar lounge—with Casino-style, air purifying technology, no less—a restaurant-caliber bar, indoor-outdoor gym, and 10-car auto gallery, where a curated selection of Ferraris was on display for the occasion. Though no one wanted to see the night end, custom boxes of Compartes chocolates made for a decadent parting gift.
“It’s been two-and-a-half years since David and I began work on 568 N. Tigertail. It was such a thrill seeing the project come together so beautifully and using my 14 years of industry experience to create a product high-end buyers have been waiting for,” says Santiago. “It was also a pleasure working with interior designer Tiffany Harris, and architect Philip Vertoch, who both helped make every last detail a reality. I’m happy to have had the opportunity to present the home to my VIP clients and friends first on what was a truly exceptional night.”
