Today's post includes Friday and of course the weekend. We were certainly busy around here. 

Rental

494 Scandia, Buellton $3100 per month

New Listing

175 2nd St. Buellton (3/2 on .15 of an acre) 575K This is the model with 1,240 square feet. Close to middle campus and the off leash dog park.

New Listing

3621 Cedar Santa Ynez (4/2 on .23 of an acre) 849K Want a new house but don’t like the “neighborhoody” feel of some new developments? This is the best of both worlds really in this well-established section of Santa Ynez with a home that has been completely renovated with style and good taste. Check out the kitchen. Looks and feels brand new inside and out. Country living with a lot of glam.

New Listing

4084 Indian, Santa Ynez (4/3 on 5 acres) $1,895,000 Very well priced big view property. Indian is on the lower level of Meadowlark Ranch where the parcels are all flat and usable but you still get mammoth views. In excellent condition and definitely not cookie cutter. Custom all the way.  

New Listing

5450 Baseline, Santa Ynez (4/3 on 5.34 acres) $1,985,000 On the Happy Canyon end of Baseline for a quieter laid back ranch style environment versus other higher traffic parts of Baseline (which is a really long street broken into two parts). This end is really beautiful with some gorgeous views, mature trees, similar size large parcels and an upscale though rural feel. House sits well off the road and enjoys close proximity to pool and horse facilities which are well planned out with barn, pastures and good sized arena. Believe me, there is a difference between horse facilities designed by experienced horse people and those that aren’t. This one is thoughtfully and perfectly planned for the enjoyment of your furry friends but also leaving a lovely garden and entertainment space for the humans too.

Back on the Market

1130 Faraday, Santa Ynez (duplex) 699K

Price Reduction

3296 Glengary, Santa Ynez (3/2 on 1.07 acres) Was 830K with a new price of $823,900.  That in and of itself is not a large price reduction but I do want to mention that this property has had 10 price reductions since June of last year. This is a seller looking for the right price. It’s up to us to tell them what that is. At the current price, I really feel like this is a superior buy. I have been to this property many times and have a few ideas about how it could simply and easily be changed up a little bit outside. We are talking perimeter Skyline Park with super cheap water billed quarterly at $329. That’s what a lot of people pay monthly, especially on a parcel this large. The house is in very good condition and in a quiet location. Why is this house still for sale? Come and see it anew at this better price. This one is a no brainer. See it. 

Price Reduction

1336 Cimarron, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .46 of an acre) Was 839K with a new price of 819K. Good reduction in a highly desirable private area of SY. 2,500 square feet with good floor plan, high ceilings and on almost a half acre. Great room plus a living room that is not just a small afterthought but a really nice usable space for large gatherings.  Very well taken care of with upgrades.

Price Reduction

1645 Still Meadow, Ballard (4/4 on 6.97 acres) Was $3,495,000 with a new price of $3,195,000. Nice 300K reduction. What this property has over others in this exclusive enclave is end of the lane privacy. No drive by traffic and the house is tucked in far from the road anyway. Very private. In over 4,700 square feet it is generous but finds a way to be cozy and fun too. You’ll find many different ways this home keeps the mood light but it certainly doesn’t skimp on quality or design. With a sprawling plan, the opportunities for quiet and work space are abundant, gathering options are many. I particularly like the kitchen and great room area where a lot of casual relaxation and togetherness happens. Good views from here, pool, tennis court and lots of land left over as a privacy barrier or to develop for other hobbies.
