A Dynamic Duo
The mad social whirl took on a whole new meaning when Montecito realtor Randy Solakian and Beverly Hills real estate powerhouse, Rick Hilton, hotel heir father to Paris and younger daughter Nicky, who married banking heir James Rothschild three years ago, hosted a Cinco de Mayo fete, just a tiara toss or two north of the Ritz-Carlton Bacara.
The dynamic duo are marketing two major properties – 77 acres for $15 million and a 65-acre site for $30 million, given it sits on one mile of pristine oceanfront.
The sites are being developed by Christopher Yelich from Orange County and the 200 well-heeled guests were ferried around the expansive site by all-terrain vehicles, as well as taking helicopter rides to get a bird’s-eye view of the properties between Eagle and Tomato canyons, which were formerly used for oil production, which ceased many years back.
Among those noshing on the Mexican comestibles and quaffing the sangria were Corinna Gordon, Roxy Solakian, Nicholas and Jennifer Hale, Charles Ward, former TV host Ann Abernathy, Kevin and Katie Frank, Sheela Hunt, and Michael and Kimberly Hayes.
