New Listing

3461 W Oak Trail Road, Santa Ynez (2/1 main house & bunkhouse on 20+ acres) $1,500,000 Sharon: Super cute hideaway or full time home. I love the location of this one off Calzada and just inside the gate so no need to meander through back country roads to get home. Fresh and like I said, super cute. In just under 1500 square feet, the main house is dressed up in quality trappings including PJ Milligan cabinetry. A petite home that lives big. Nice open floor plan for maximum light and access to views. The views from the covered porch are crazy good.  The bunkhouse is adorable. Separate shop/garage has endless possibilities. Really a little gem at an attractive price. Nina: I am a sucker for anything resembling a Ponderosa Ranch style porch. That along with the board and batten exterior and the charming finishes on 20 +/- acres with views? Yes please!  Listed by Laura Drammer of Berkshire Hathaway. 

New Listings

1130 Ladan Drive, Solvang (3/4 on 6.7 acres) $2,475,000 Sharon: I already showed this one last week. For those of you that like clean lines in a modern theme, you already know how few and far between these types of homes are around here. A lot of drama, high style and extreme quality went into the construction of this home. Th wow factor starts at the front door and continues on. In the back with the view you'll find the artistry doesn't quit as form and function combines with statuary and gathering places in addition to a one hole golf course complete with mini sand traps, all with tremendous mountain views. All this and convenience too. Nina: It's not often you find a home of this style in the valley with an elegant mixture of wood and stone. Quality finishes, clean lines, beautiful views of the mountains and close to everything.Listed by Randy Glick of Berkshire Hathaway

New Listing

2840 Montecielo Drive, Santa Ynez (main house and guest house on 15+ acres) $3,195,000 Sharon: Wowza! I am really looking forward to seeing this one in person. Dream home come true. Fine quality interiors in the house and guest house. Boutique vineyard. Big views. Outdoor kitchen. This is one of my favorite streets for many reasons but one of them is the unusual and very welcome convenience while still being rural and gentleman ranch category. This is a good one bound to not last too long. Nina: Beautiful vineyard home and guest house on 15 +/- acres with plenty of opportunity for outdoor living. With nice high ceilings, one room seems to flow to the next.   Listed by Micah Brady and Jennifer Nation of Sothebys
