Yes, I know .... I omitted a few zeros yesterday. The Latigo Estate is more accurately $36,000,000 which seems like a more appropriate number than $36,000 for an estate of this magnitude, scope and quality on almost 5,000 acres with unmatched historical significance. Thank you to my readers who pointed out my booboo yesterday. I saw this one on caravan today. I have no words (yes, I know this is rare). I was impressed, awed and grateful to have been able to see and experience this property. Whereas I didn't get to travel over the vast acreage which would have been a total trip in itself, I was still visually transported to a higher level of experience on an estate of rare quality and beyond compare in land mass, location, natural conservation awareness and a fine example of California at its very best. Grateful is a good word here. I am grateful to have been able to be there, glimpse this amazing lifestyle and see first hand the untouched beauty of this natural wonderland. If this property is in your pricing wheelhouse, I highly encourage that you see it. To be the steward of this much land and still be within easy driving distance to all conveniences is a feat not easily accomplished or replicated.

New Listing (1)

1215 Sawleaf, Solvang (3/2 on .25 of an acre) 745K Sharon: This is a listing in our own inventory so check out the property website instead at The most affordable property we have seen in Skytt in a long time, we expect this one to go quickly so I strongly advise you to see it soon. Open this Friday with Nina from 12:00 to 2:00 and with Sharon on Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00. Even so, this home is available to be shown by appointment at your convenience for private showings as well. Its very clean, pristine condition and like new. For those of you who don't need an overly large home, the just under 1600 square foot size will feel just right yet the quarter acre yard will provide the privacy and elbow room we humans need. The high ceilings, tall windows and doors make this home live like a much larger home due to the light and bright nature of these newer designed homes. Preferred location with the views from the back yard (where we tend to spend our time) versus the front yard. Big driveway with plenty of room to park in addition to the huge 3 car garage. This one packs in a lot of what today's buyer wants at a very attractive price. See it. Nina:We are so excited to bring this property on the market. This home won't last long. It is bright and clean and easy to move into or easy to add your own touches. It is such an incredible price for a Skytt Mesa home; we think you will agree. Please stop by one of our open houses this week - Friday from 12 to 2 or Saturday from 1 to 4. We are looking forward to seeing you there!   Listed by yours truly, Sharon Currie and Nina Stormo of Berkshire Hathaway.
