Here is a shout out to some nice folks who came and saw one of my listings today. They are some of my very earliest readers of this blog. Its so great to connect with people who have been reading what I write for so long. I've been at this almost a decade now. Hard to believe! Thanks to all of the rest of you too. I love hearing things like "I start every day off with coffee and your blog" or "I stay up late sometimes waiting for you to post it". Warms my heart. So thank you for being such great readers and supporters. 

New Listing

500 Rancho Alisal Drive, Solvang (3/3 on .76 of an acre) 695K I was the listing agent on this property in 2017 when it sold last. At the time, and still today, I haven't seen a finer kitchen in all of the Alisal, bar none. It is fabulous. In fact, much of the house had been remodeled at that time but even more has been done since. I love the open floor plan and the synergy between kitchen and living spaces. In 3300+ square feet, it is one of the larger homes in the Alisal Ranch which lends a spaciousness to the living areas and also privacy for sleeping rooms. The master is on one end and the guest spaces on the other. The back yard is restful, easy to navigate, very private and has nice setting views. Circular driveway offers off street parking options for friends and family. Consider this one move in condition because it is. Move in .... start enjoying the Alisal lifestyle. I have the annual land lease payments on this one so if curious let me know. If you have been waiting for something special in the Alisal that is priced right and offers a lot, it doesn't get much better than this one. The perfect convergence of perfect pricing, perfect condition and a perfect location. How often does that happen? Listed by Claire Hanssen of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices
