Wow. Holy moly. Lots of stuff going on. 

New Listings

539 Alisal, Solvang (.33 of an acre, land only) 569K Zoned for multi unit development. I'm a fan of "in building" versus gobbling up pristine ag lands and this is a great opportunity to do just that. Super location for today's renters or condo buyers .... close to town and all amenities. 

670 Alamo Pintado, Solvang (1.06 acres, land only) $1,349,000  Ditto above. In building opportunity. Development potential for multi units. 

1807 Laurel, Solvang (2/2 on .25 of an acre) 640K Corner of Pine and Laurel. House sited so most of the parcel is available for expansion, gardening or hobbies. Easy stroll into town or school from here. Vintage bungalow from 1951. 

160 3rd St., Solvang (3/3 on .23 of an acre) 649K Even has a pool! Not many pools around this close to town. Interesting and highly desirable location in what functions as a corner lot but is really just where 3rd street takes a sharp corner. Those reading this via email will see the aerial. Not right on the perimeter but close to and facing the homes that are, this area is considered one of most desirable here on the upper deck of Solvang, just a few blocks from the city center. Super quiet dead end street, you can't beat this location for privacy and convenience so close to everything. 

555 Meadow View, Buellton (4/3 on .16 of an acre) 695k Perimeter location overlooking the park. Similar to my listing that closed last week (545 Meadow View which closed at 640K), this one has big, big views as well as proximity to the park and botanic garden. Corner location. 

1095 Viendra, Solvang (20.11 acres, land only) 985K This is a little known but nice area off of the leg of Ballard Canyon that leads to Buellton eventually so you get the rural feel yet single digit minutes to Albertsons. Water and power to the site. Nice views. Easy to find and easy to navigate to anywhere you want to go in the valley. 

1180 Alamo Pintado, Solvang (4/3 + legal second unit on 4.86 acres) $1,560,000 The guest house or legal second unit currently brings in $2,450,000 in rental income. Land all flat and usable. 

Under Contract

2288 Coyote Creek, Santa Ynez (3/4 on 3.08 acres) $1,295,000 I really like this house. I'm a big fan of traditional floor plans ... more rooms and wall space for collections and favorite pieces which is sacrificed with an open floor plan. Built in 2004 but feels much more like a fully restored vintage home with the added twist of some super cool ceilings upstairs. Really inventive and definitely not boring. Loads of character with a splash of romance. 

189 Manzanita, Solvang (4/2 on .31 of an acre) 649K


1400 Calzada, Santa Ynez (3/3 on 1 acre)  Sold to my own clients! Listed at 810K and sold final for 800K even. Original list price was 825K. On the corner of Calzada and Cimarron, the location gives this property a spacious feel much bigger than a typical one acre parcel but then you add in the surprisingly big horizon views and a real winner is born.  The house is in excellent condition and very well maintained over the years plus has good energy (hey, good energy is a real thing) with some recent updates including a gorgeous master bath and a view centric living and dining space. Close to everything yet rural which is the exact recipe many buyers are seeking today. This is a good one and could not have been sold to people who are more deserving of a superb value and perfect place to call home. The valley is instantly a better place because they are here. Additional thanks to my friend and Realtor Nina Stormo who helped me big time in making all this happen. Its an important and often overlooked facet of real estate sales. To service clients adequately, I believe we agents need to have a team approach and build a closely held network of professionals that we know and trust. We aren't robots so its good to have someone to "have our back" when we take a few days of R&R and in that way, no client is ever left unattended or misses a good deal. Nina is a wonderul asset to anyone who works with her, including me. She is bright, intuitive and caring. Thank you Nina for having my back and being such a wonderful part of this transaction. I had a few days of R&R and our client got exactly what they wanted. A true win/win! 

3305 Sagunto, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .41 of an acre)  Sold to my own clients! Listed at 690K and sold final for 680K. There was a lot of action on this one so I am doubly glad my client was the lucky winner of this exceptional home. So much is newer here like kitchen, bathrooms, windows, lighting and flooring. The floor plan is highly unusual for a 1984 built home and lends itself well to today's open space design and high ceiling requests. The reconstructed kitchen is a focal point. The loft is amazing! Both bathrooms are gorgeous. Sitting up high above the cul de sac with a bank of windows in the front, it has a level of panache not often seen at this price point. Truly, this is a rare opportunity to own a currently themed home this close to town and at a great price. I could not be happier for this client who knew they were looking for something special and was willing to wait for it. Sometimes waiting is worth it which was definitely the case here. One of my favorite mottos is "ask for what you want first, settle second". No "settling" was needed here. This is a good one. 

431 Dogwood, Buellton (6/4 on .17 of an acre)  Listed at 729K and sold final for same. Buellton does it again in bang for your buck. Just under 3,000 square feet of newer style home. 

179 Rancho Alisal Drive, Solvang (4/3 on .50 of an acre)  Listed at 879K and sold final for 860K. As I have said before, the most beautiful, expertly remodeled and classy home I have seen in the Alisal, bar none.  Alisal Ranch homes are on leased land so the sale price is for the dwelling only. 

2610 Roundup, Santa Ynez (3/3 on 17.69 acres)  Sold off market. Listed at $3,795,000 and sold final for $3,726,000. Listed on the MLS for statistical purposes after the fact.
