Here is a sneak peak at some beautiful apricots just now ripening at Nina and I's new listing at 2353 Henning Drive in Los Olivos.  Photographer came today. Will take a couple of days to get this under way. Plan on seeing pics for this diamond in the rough about Thursday. The very last house on the left on Henning, nestled directly along the creek on a full acre, this mini makeover has all the ingredients for a beautiful and worthwhile project. Great bones here and its likely no walls have to be moved to make it work. This, for many buyers, is just a cosmetic makeover with some landscaping for added enjoyment.  The location can't be beat and you get a whole bunch of free apricots too! Give or take 2,000 square feet, single story, tall ceilings, flat and usable parcel, end of the lane privacy, easy walk to downtown. $1,075,000. Sneak peak showings are encouraged. Also open this weekend on Saturday. Call us.

1469 Aarhus Drive, Solvang (4/2 on .17 of an acre) 698K Nina: Another great deal. I'm excited to see this one in person tomorrow! From what I understand, it has very nice updates throughout. Listed by Jeannie Hollingsworth of Douglas Elliman. 

351 Valley Dairy Road, Buellton (4/2 on .16 of an acre) 695K Sharon: On the Sycamore Ranch school side of Valley Dairy, not the Meadowridge big park side, in the block between highway 246 and 2nd street for easy in and easy out. Commuters dream with the 101 being an easy jet down the street. Immaculate home with the floor plan that offers a nice family room and kitchen combo in addition to the living room. I like the covered front porch in this model too. Nina:Nice open floor plan in a very pretty Buellton home, and a great price point to boot. This home has four bedrooms, which isn't easy to come by in the price range, and at over 2300 square feet, the price per square foot is really attractive.  Listed by Barbara Neary of BHHS.
