New Listing

333 Third Street, Solvang (3/2 on .32 of an acre) 645K No showings until April 5th.  Listed by Susie Sorensen of Berkshire Hathaway. 

New Listing

654 Ivy Lane, Solvang (4/3 on .56 of an acre) $1,165,000 Sharon: One of my favorite streets in Solvang. Close enough to walk into town if you want but sequestered near the top of Pine St. for big views. Its an unusual curvy street that runs along the ridgeline over the top of Mission Oaks. If you are looking for something turn key with panoramic views but without the upkeep of a lot of acreage, this is a good one to look at. Nina: A very well maintained cul-de-sac in a view area of Solvang, this house is clean, bright and ready to move into. Well thought out landscaping in a tucked away location, definitely worth a look.  Listed by Jan Finley and Wendy Carpenter of Sothebys. 

Back On Market after a brief hiatus with a Price Reduction

2058 Adobe Canyon Road, Solvang (10 acres with barn)  Was $1,125,000 with a new price of 995K. Nina: This property is in one of my favorite areas of Ballard and offers some interesting development potential.  Listed by Patty Murphy of Sothebys. 

Price Reduction

3475 W Oak Trail Road, Santa Ynez (main house and guest house on 20+ acres) Was $2,000,000 with a new price of $1,900,000. Listed by Richard Keenanof Keller Williams

Under Contract

4091 Baseline Avenue, Santa Ynez (15+ acres with vintage farm house) $1,595,000. A listing in our own inventory. A bit of a boomerang. Came back on market and then went right back under contract. Closing next week. Listed by Sharon Currie and Nina Stormo of Berkshire Hathaway.
