A determination has been made on the "hoop house" (the white plastic hoop structures over berry rows). This via an email from the county today "On June 15, 2017, the Planning and Development Director made a determination regarding the zoning permit requirements for hoop structures (also known as “berry hoops” and “hoop houses”), pursuant to Section 35.12.020 of the Land Use and Development Code (“Development Code”).  The Director determined that hoop structures as defined in the Development Code and which are no greater than 20 feet tall are exempt from zoning permits". There is an appeal deadline of 6/26 for those that don't agree with this determination. So essentially farmers can put up the hoop houses without a permit unless they are over 20 feet tall. If they are taller, then a permit is required and concerned parties could ostensibly opine on the matter. I have the entire letter from County Planning and Development which goes into a little more detail if you want to read it. Let me know if so. Kudos to the county for protecting farmers. They feed us. 

New Listing

243 Menlo Drive, Buellton (3/2 on .17 of an acre) 595K Here is another new listing in my own inventory so you can also visit the dedicated website at www.243Menlo.com.  Yes, I have two listings on this same highly sought after cul de sac in a prime location. This one single story with a true great room design. Many thoughtful upgrades have already been done here .... the kind you don't necessarily see but appreciate anyway like new roof, furnace, air conditioner and landscaping. The "guts" so to speak have been renovated. Close to schools and a superb location for commuters plus the ever requested bonus .... no HOA! Listed by me!

New Price

1475 Edison, Santa Ynez (main house and managers or guest residence on 10.8 acres)  Was $2,795,000 with a new price of $2,595,000. I have been to this property lately and was very impressed with the total package. The mature landscaping is really lovely, the house is perfectly kept and the horse facilities very well planned. All flat and usable land is hard to find here but in abundance at this location close to all conveniences.  Listed by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

Under Contract

1231 N. Refugio, Santa Ynez (4/3 on .88 of an acre) 929K I think its fair to say that clean, ready to go single story homes on a little bit of acreage under a million are not lasting long on the market. This one only two days. Country Lane which sold to my own clients in 1 day back on market. Its starting to look like you have to move fast on the ones in the sweet spot.
