I'm joining many of you out there sending collective thoughts of safety and security for Montecito and other fire and/or mud slide affected areas due to the predicted rain deluge beginning late tomorrow. Some good maps and video at Weather.com are talking about this "atmospheric river" (click here). Here in the valley, we don't have any evacuation warnings that I know of but not so with other locations on the central coast involved in prior burn areas and certainly in other parts of the country where our troubles are, in comparison, de minimis. If you don't hear from me tomorrow, you'll know the power is out!
1406 Aarhus, Solvang (4/2 on .21 of an acre) 785K I love this one already and I haven't even seen it yet. Why? 1)Great pricing for the condition and location. 2)Perimeter parcel with views. 3)Located right next to the trail head down to the trails and forested open space below (I have heard you can get to the river but not confirmed). 4)This one is done and done. Completely remodeled and with a level of quality, style and good taste that will meet or exceed anyones expectation shopping in this price range. 5)Literally, turn the key, move in. Pics may appear to be a two story but the stairs go to a loft space, use it or not, up to you but the home functions like a single story. Love it. See it. Perfectly priced and presented.
1871 Laurel, Solvang (4/2 on .48 of an acre) 799K Talk about end of the road, in a good way. The location of this property is literally end of Laurel. Last house. No drive bys. Incredible views. Ultimate privacy yet put your walking shoes on and enjoy everything downtown Solvang has to offer in a matter of minutes. Downward sloping parcels below are vacant now but even if built out sometime in the future, will not obscure the panorama of valley views this parcel enjoys. Seriously outstanding views from the house in multiple locations. The upper story here can function quite nicely on its own with a full bed and bath on this level. The downstairs can be incorporated into the upstairs for family and friends sprawl or it can be utilized individually for those that like to be automomous from the goings on upstairs, Even has its own entrance. Nice yard. Plenty of parking. Totally unique with much of the original 1940 character still in place, melded with many of today's upgrades including a charming kitchen. Pay particular attention to the marvelous old wood floors. They are a treat unto themselves. A very happy place that must be experienced to be fully appreciated. Great energy here. See it.

1327 Calzada, Santa Ynez (3/3 on 1 acre) 875K I was able to preview this property and was very impressed with the location and fully usable, well planned out campus. Plenty of room for entertaining furry and human friends alike. The house is in very good condition with many recent upgrades to surfaces, windows, lighting, cabinetry and more. Pretty outside with wisteria covered arbor, paver patio, views and horse facilities. Calzada address but well off the road on a cul de sac. No small wonder it sold before hitting the market. Its a good one.
