Its Thursday so click here for the open house list for this weekend. Its Mothers Day weekend so the list is shorter than normal. Some on the list you may not have seen yet are 2nd St., the two Elk Groves, Creekside and Chalk Hill. All worth taking a look at depending on your price point. 

New Listing (1)

624 Hillside Drive, Solvang (3/3 on .18 of an acre) $867,500 Sharon: Right in the upper middle of the "Hillside Horseshoe" which means views over the nice hillside meadow and plenty of deer sightings. HOA in here is $750 per month. Listed by Susan Beckmann of Sothebys. 

Back on the Market (1)

3166 Horizon Drive, Santa Ynez (3/3 on .88 of an acre) 915K Listed by Jodi Williams of Coldwell Banker. 

Back on the Market with a Price Reduction (1)

1235 Quail Ridge Road, Solvang (3/3 on almost 3 acres) Sharon: Was $1,100,000 with a new price of 995K. Story book look complete with dormers. Love it as is or bring in all those farmhouse amenities that you have been dreaming about. The acreage here is amazing in just under 3 acres of mostly usable land. Superb location too. This one is worth spending some time and money on due to its style, character, location and acreage size. The curb appeal and interior possibilities are a very good fit for the valley, not to mention the pastoral appeal of the acreage. A good one, especially at this new price. Nina:  I've always liked this property and think it offers a lot of potential. With nearly 3 acres, nice location, a pool and a farmhouse feel, it's just waiting for the right buyer.  Listed by Robert Etling of Joe Olla Realty. 

Price Reductions (2)

300 Freya Drive, Solvang (2/3 + room with out a closet on .34 of an acre)  Sharon: Was 919K with a new price of 879K. Add a closet or armoire to that extra room and bam!, its a 3 bedroom or just use it as an office or media room like many people would. This is a very good value for Village Collection, especially for an almost 3,500 square foot home on over a third of an acre. Nina: With other homes in the Village Collection closing for over $1M, there is a nice value here. This home offers over 3400 square feet, a pool and a very convenient location. Listed by Lynn Golden of Village Properties. 

7735 Happy Canyon Road, Santa Ynez (main residence, guest house, managers quarters, barns on 136+ acres) Sharon: Was $6,600,000 with a new price of $6,395,000. Nina: This is a really special Happy Canyon property! The offerings here are endless... a home of over 7500 square feet along with guest quarters and a barn. The pond sits among the many mature trees in one of the most beautiful park-like settings I have seen anywhere in the valley. Approximately 136 acres in which to ride, hike and explore, it's the ultimate gathering location.
