New Listings(3)

371 Beech Court, Buellton (3/2 on .18 of an acre) 685K Sharon: Corner of Beech and 2nd St. Easy jog down the block in either direction to lower campus or middle campus. Nina: Super cute Buellton 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home that's just over 2000 square feet walking distance to the school and park.Listed by Lynette Naour or Village Properties. 

3090 Avena Road, Lompoc (3/2 on 20.55 acres) $1,250,000 Sharon: A lot of this parcel is usable. Listed by Tom Hinkens of the Hinkens Group. 

1535 Linda Vista Drive, Santa Ynez (4/5 on 5+ acres) $3,295,000 Sharon: I always wondered if love at first sight is a real thing. I'm happy to report, it is!! I know because I fell in love with this one from the get go. Having a heads up, I've had the distinct pleasure of visiting this one several times already. I will say here that out of all the remodeled houses I have been in, and that is a lot, I have only ever seen one that rivaled the thoroughness, design flair, consistent super high end quality and setting that this home has. It is quite literally better than new. Labeling it a remodel doesn't even seem fair. It is so meticulously renovated that calling it like new seems more fair and accurate. This home was never this nice, even when brand new! It offers everything today's high end buyer is looking for in terms of wow factor, amenities choices, color palette, ceiling height, floor plan, magazine worthy kitchen and luscious master suite, each guest bedroom is en suite plus there is a huge open office  ... and I haven't even started on the outside yet. Even the roof was replaced! Gorgeous pool, bocce, outdoor living room with fireplace and a fully stocked pond that is large enough to float a small boat on and economical to have due to Rancho Estates very low private well water rates. The ducks are fun eye candy and are a kick in the pants to watch. The surrounding hillsides are naturally beautiful and provide a nice privacy back drop in addition to the drama that is inherent in this area of the valley. Two very large fenced pastures remain in case you bring some furry friends with you or want to convert these very usable areas to crops of choice. If you are looking for new in the luxury sector and have figured out it doesn't exist here, I encourage you to take a private tour of this property. Its like new, only better and offers the total package. See it. Make it #1 on your list. Nina: We had the pleasure of seeing this stunning Rancho Estates remodel on just over 5 acres. From the pool to the pond to the incredible interior, every inch has been thoughtfully designed and gorgeous materials have been used throughout. Listed by Carey Kendall of Village Properties.
