Caravan Thoughts from Yesterday

231 Victory, Buellton $585,777 What a lovely well kept home. Not on the perimeter like some buyers seek, but instead tucked away in a very quiet serene cul de sac with little to no driveby traffic. This is the big model with cathedral ceilings and two living spaces, one formal and one casual. This is also the only model with interior access to the garage. The back yard is dreamy. See it. 

1374 Faraday, Santa Ynez 895K Stylish and completely remodeled, this home is move in ready. It is a unique design and definitely not boring but instead fun and fresh. The kitchen is really nice. The back yard very private. Close to town but not too close. If you are tired of the same old floor plan, check this one out. 

3475 West Oak Trail, Santa Ynez $2,995,000 This one was surprisingly fun and different. Think Big Sur meets Montana. Ventana plays with Aspen. Lots of rustic wood in this upscale 5 bedroom 6 bath cabin with quiet spaces, gathering spots, views, sequestered decks and nooks, soothing lighting and color palette. Adorable guest house and iconic old barns. Quite a bit of the land is flat and usable as well. This property would work for a variety of buyers but especially well suited for a group of buyers with much smaller budgets who might be looking for an amazing get away and would be interested in pooling their money. Corporate retreat to full time living, this property is one of a kind and full of character impossible to easily duplicate. 

New Listing (already under contract)

500 Ranch Alisal, Solvang (2/3 on .76 of an acre) 625K This is a new listing in my own inventory which also went pending earlier today before it ever hit the market. That's how truly special this one is. It has, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful and well put together kitchens I have ever been in at any price point. Simply scrumptious. Gorgeous woods, hand picked surfaces and so much elegance throughout for the price point. Big views and a very private setting. Through the magic of leased land, the country club lifestyle can be both exclusive and affordable. It's a good one! See the photo tour with interactive floor plan at 

New Listing

979 -985 Old Ranch Rd., Solvang (3/4 on 1 acre PLUS an undeveloped next door 1 acre parcel) $2,190,000 We saw the house come on the market recently but now the next door parcel is added as an option, all or one. If you want more dirt or would like to create a family compound, this is a good way to acquire contiguous parcels. 

Price Reduction

143.39 acres, land only, Buellton  Was $6,700,000 with a new price of $4,000,000. That's what I call a price reduction! This is available by auction only. Visit for bidding information. 


365 Midten Hof, Solvang (3/3 on .17 of an acre) Listed at $749,900 and sold for 722K. Finally! This one was on my favorites list the entire time. Well done remodel with a very interesting floor plan.
