How did it get to be the last day of April so fast? 

New Listing(1)

3541 Olive, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .32 of an acre) 710K Sharon: Seriously, what is not to love about this one? Excellent condition with a 1991 build date in just under 1700 square feet, tall wood ceilings, amazing views of the ranch parcel behind, cozy kitchen, updated bathrooms, master also has the view of the ranch land, tons of storage and not to mention, a lush though easy care over a third of an acre parcel accessed via a long private easement for the ultimate in privacy from passers by. Turn key, well priced, private. In fact, about as turn key as it gets at this price point. Expect it to go fast. I wouldn't wait until the weekend to move on this one. Those seeing this via email will see the aerial of how the parcel abuts a much larger ranch property resulting in a natural flora and fauna setting.  Nina: Tucked away down a quiet lane in Santa Ynez is this charming cottage abundant in rose bushes and overlooking a beautiful pasture. I had the opportunity to see this property today and found the finishes throughout to be thoughtful and tastefully done.  Listed by Linda Williams of Sothebys.
