Of Special Mention

123 Shadow Mountain Drive, Buellton (3/2 on .15 of an acre) 589K Sharon: There were multiple offers and a lot of interest but contrary to popular belief, this one is still available. Not only is the largest model in Rancho De Maria, it is also one of the largest lots and on a corner to boot. This is the only RDM floor plan that offers interior access directly to the garage. Clean, clean, clean and sports a rad back yard. Low HOA in here is $53.75 per month which supports the really nice large park down the street complete with tennis courts. Nearby 9 hole golf course is additional.  It doesn’t get much better than that under 600K. In fact, I’m calling this one the best buy in its price range. See it before its gone.

New Listing (1)

2399 Janin Place, Solvang, CA (3/3 on 1 acre) 949K Sharon: Looking forward to seeing this one. On the Mission Drive side of Janin, versus the view side, which offers up a lot flat and more usable. Beautifully taken care of home with a lot of upgrades. Classically inspired, its very “Santa Barbara” and larger than some others in Janin at well over 2400 square feet. Who wouldn’t love to have that media room? Super inexpensive water in Janin makes these homes a super bonus at flat rate $375 per quarter. Open this weekend. See it. Nina: Bright and open Janin Acres home on one acre of land, three bedrooms and three bathrooms in over 2400 square feet.The exterior has a charming split rail fence and plenty of lawn space.  Listed by Michelle Glaus of Village.

Price Adjustment (1)

2353 Henning Drive, Los Olivos (3/2 on 1+ acre)  Sharon: This is a listing in our own inventory. Was $1,075,000 with a new much lower price of $950,000. You said it, we reduced it. What you are buying here beyond a rock solid house is location. There are few locations as good as this one in Los Olivos. End of the lane quiet, abuts the creek for privacy and wildlife sightings and is all flat and usable. Lovely mature trees create your own park. The house is forward thinking in design. No need to move walls, Just bring the surfaces and other amenities current and you have one amazing place. Love it as is or dress it up, it’s a good one … now at a better price. I’ll be there Sunday 1:00 to 3:00 so come on by! Nina: $125,000 price reduction!!!!! This is one of our own listings so I have had plenty of time at the property and my imagination has run wild. There is so much you could do here. The property is on an acre within walking distance to the town of Los Olivos. As you pull down the driveway, you will notice a shaded space covered by mature trees where I can see a bocce court. The high ceilings in the main living space make it an easy remodel and the backyard allows plenty of room for a pool, decks and meandering pathways through gardens. It's worth seeing. Listed by us!

The house is livable just the way it is too and the location is tucked away with a feeling of privacy. Listed by Allan Jones of SYV RE
