1173 Cota, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .33 of an acre) 864K One of the newer homes this close to town, built in 2001 so you'll see more newer type amenities and style factors here than the typical home in this area built in the 60's, 70's and 80's. Good size too at just under 2500 square feet. This location is in a little traveled cul de sac so you get a lot more privacy than other parts of Cota provide. Close enough to make travel to school easy but not impacted by school proximity, traffic or sports. Its a very good location for this close to town. Surrounding properties are also on generous lots so you get a lot of elbow room for the money. Back yard is a blank slate just waiting for a plan.
846 Sienna, Solvang (4/3 on 1.1 acre) $1,225,000 I bet many of you are reading this wondering where the heck Sienna is. Traveling on highway 246 from Solvang towards Santa Ynez and before you get to Carriage Dr. and El Rancho, you'll see this tiny street off on your right. Just 5 homes and an undeveloped parcel are snuggled in this quiet little enclave which backs up to Covered Wagon. This location provides privacy yet you can literally walk to El Rancho premium market just around the corner and down the highway a ways. This home in just under 2300 square feet offers a classic floor plan, upgrades and a beautifully designed yet easy care landscape with pool on this nice flat and usable parcel.
3146 Riley, Solvang (3/3 on 3.11 acres) $1,690,000 Sited on one of the most desirable parcels in Rancho Alisal, it doesn't get much more special than this inside the ranch. There is another Cliff May in the ranch but I have to say, this May inspired home is a contender for architectural appeal and timeless style. Completely remodeled with panache and good taste, this home offers all the grace and maturity you can expect from a luxury home in a gated golf course community but with private pool, tremendous views, full acre in vineyard and producing olive orchard on a way bigger parcel than we normally see here at 3+ acres. This parcel size dwarfs almost every other parcel in here plus has the added huge bonus of backing up to pristine ranch land with a no neighbor feel. Protected from passersby by due to the protected driveway entrance which provides the most privacy anyone could ask for in the Alisal and pretty much anywhere else here either at this price point. Its fun, its bright, its loaded with quality and completely unique. Rancho Alisal homes are on leased land with annual lease payments which in this case is $29,100 annually until the lease adjusts in 2024.
1623 Juniper, Solvang (3/2 on .18 of an acre) 579K This is a listing in my own inventory. Why did it stick around so long? No idea. This is a good deal!
3460 Live Oak, Santa Ynez (3/3 on 19.42 of an acre) $2,295,000 Really nice easy living remodel with unobstructed views out of both sides of this property which is highly unique even with these hilltop sites.
