235 Central Avenue 1, Buellton (1/1 condo) 325K 235 Central Avenue 1, Buellton (1/1 condo) 325K Sharon: Just a nudge under 800 square feet in this ground floor unit (yay - no stairs!). HOA here says no more than 2 people can live here in the 1 bedroom units and one dog or one cat is ok under 24 lbs. Low HOA fee of $165 per month ... has to be the lowest in the valley. Nina: Ground floor option in Buellton close to all the conveniences.Listed by Allan Jones of SYV RE

203 Valhalla Drive, Solvang (3/3 plus office on .42 of an acre) $1,060,000 Sharon: One of the most memorable homes in Village Collection with the deep and wide covered porch in the front. Anybody that has driven through VC has noticed this one. Very romantic. At just under 2,900 square feet, it is generous but not cavernous. The petite pool is complimented by a petite pool house and easy to maintain grounds. No garage doors visible from the street which is a curb appeal trait I personally really like. Light and bright. Built in 1997 so high ceilings and spacious rooms, these homes are perfect as is but also are very well suited to today's amenity upgrades without having to recreate the wheel. One of my personal favorite exteriors in the Village Collection and a very good location too. Nina: Very well maintained Village Collection pool home close to town and the Alisal, for those who like to live near a golf course.Listed by Jeanea Johnson of Village Properties.

White, clean, bright, simple. On almost a half an acre, the back yard is literally a grown up playground with room for a pool if you so chose. Lucca is a wonderful street, private with little traffic but still easily walkable to the center of all things LO. You can walk the back streets and walk ways to the coffee shop and school without ever setting foot on Grand Avenue. Nina: Wonderful Los Olivos location just a couple blocks to town. The owners have done a nice job with the remodel - it's move-in ready with a modern farmhouse feel. It's also a nice space for entertaining with bocce and outdoor chess.  Listed by Liana Decierdo of Village Properties
