Its about time for a favorites list. Well, my favorites that is. I hope some of these are yours too. These homes may not be every single favorite of mine but they are some that I think are exceptionally good values in combination with other factors like good condition OR a really good fixer, have extensive remodeling so are move in ready or are in some other way very interesting to me and properties you should consider viewing. 

Favorites Under $1,000,000 

269 Glennora Way, Buellton 625K Good vibes abound in this happy home in a prime location. Lots of RV parking, some remodel already saving you $$$. Backs up to the polo ranch so ultra privacy at this low, low price. Open Sunday 2 to 4. Come and see me! 

555 Meadow View Drive, Buellton 669K On the perimeter above the park. Popular Meadowridge. 

876 Kolding Avenue, Solvang 685K Fixer with a big ol' future. Big house, big lot, great location. 

3352 Numancia Street, Santa Ynez 725K Done and done! Everything here is done to perfection. There are only two things left for you to do here. Open the bottle of wine. Relax. In that order. Open Saturday 2 to 4. Come and see me! 

2141 Creekside Drive, Solvang 732K I love the vibe in this home. Great energy. My favorite Creekside floor plan. In excellent condition. 

1339 Cheyenne Lane, Santa Ynez $759,900 Great neighborhood, great floor plan, I love the ceilings, pool. 

3296 Glengary Road, Santa Ynez $823,990 Very reasonable private water at $329 per quarter. Remodeled and private. 

2492 Janin Way, Solvang 995K Full and complete remodel. I love the kitchen and the huge living room on a full acre. Views! Very reasonable water at $375 per quarter. 

Favorites $1,000,000 to $3,000,000

668 Ivy Lane, Solvang $1,125,000 Superior location with big views yet walkable to town. Very Santa Barbara. 

1711 Ballard Canyon, Solvang $1,199,000 Privacy, good house, lots of land in Ballard Canyon. This is about as low as it gets for a decent house (and this house is way more than decent) on 5+ acres in a good location. Very private especially for the price point. 

949 Old Ranch Road, Solvang $1,495,000 Need a big house and an easy care yard? Almost 5,000 square feet here. Gated community close to everything. 

2678 Santa Barbara Avenue, Los Olivos $1,695,000 Gorgeous remodel and redesign. 

4084 Indian Way, Santa Ynez $1,895,000 Hard to find combination of all flat land and big views. Quality built home. 

4199 Tims Road, Santa Ynez $2,575,000 Insane quality, no steep driveway and no windy hill top location. 

$3,000,000 Plus

1645 Still Meadow Road, Solvang $3,195,000 Upscale location but close to everything and unusually private for the parcel size. I love the traditional floor plan which is made to order for those with collections of fine things and art. Built with attention to quality throughout. 

5200 Zaca Station Road, Los Olivos $8,900,000 20,000 square foot main house plus guest house... and no, that isn't a typo, on 64 acres. In the country and uniquely private yet very close to Los Olivos for a parcel of this size (corner of Zaca and Foxen Canyon), making driving in for dinner an easy jaunt and the parcel size manageable. A true lifestyle property with lake, vineyard, pool, tennis court and a wide selection of guest accommodations. This one has it going on! 

3235 Roblar Avenue, Santa Ynez $9,700,000 Circa the good old days of early 1930's, this vintage ranch could not be rebuilt today with nearly 8,000 square foot main house and 3 separate guest houses on one single 56 acre parcel. Flat and usable, this parcel occupies the entire corner of Roblar and Calzada for a close to town yet prestigious location. Highly visible location yet the house and guest houses are completely shielded from the public by the tended old growth mature oak trees and other shield plantings. Many updates have been done over the years but done so with respect for the history of this significant property. Super cool old barn, horse facilities, sand volleyball court and private gym make this a nod to yesterday but ready for today's buyer who enjoys conveniences yet understands and values history. 

4500 Via Rancheros Road, Santa Ynez $10,900,000 Almost 9,000 square foot main house plus guest house with extreme attention to detail and quality. The main house has loads of options for guests to occupy without being under foot in addition to the guest house.  Land all flat and usable and set up for income producing hay crop and grapes. Very private out here at this south end of Refugio with river frontage. For the gentlemen rancher out there seeking extreme privacy without having to take a Cesna into town for lunch and doesn't want to give up the finer things in life, this is a good one. And who doesn't love modern farmhouse and a private cinema? Guest house is wonderful for staff. Horse facilities already here. Keep it simple or add more lifestyle amenities. Up to you. Either way, the flat usable topography of this parcel makes this easy secure living with a healthy portion of wow factor. 

New Listing

2110 Adobe Canyon, Solvang (5+ acres, land with barn) 950K This is a new listing in my own inventory. Another great land listing in a prime location! As the valley infills, very few of these truly great undeveloped parcels still exist. This is one of them. Superior views from a parcel that is very usable can be seen here. I love the barn which is rock solid on a permanent foundation with lots of options for use. Land Use Permit has already been issued which saves you time and money. Reports are available. Private well on site already. The location is really the deal here. Tucked in near Lincourt, 11 Oaks, Santa Barbara Ranch and Firestone, there is a lot of cache right here in this little traveled hidden part of the valley. If you want to build, tit doesn't get much better than this spot. See the virtual tour at
