Coming Very Soon

Nina and I have a few lovely new listings coming down the pike soon. Want a sneak peak? If one of these sounds like a fit, let us know:

4/3 in Los Olivos. When we say “done”, we mean done and done! Not a fixer with an unknown end price tag.  This home on a very quiet street within easy walking distance to the village has been completely renovated top to bottom with style and excellent quality. A real stunner. The kitchen is a star performer with the living areas being inviting and so relaxing. Bedrooms and baths are generous and well appointed. The back yard is upscale spa quality with outdoor living area and custom outdoor fireplace with the benefit of a detached studio/bunk house. It’s a winner inside and out with a massive and very private master suite, professional grade landscaping, extra large car guy garage and so much more. Mint condition and perfect for full time or part time living. Move in, enjoy the rest of the summer.  Price will be $1,050,000.

5/3 in Buellton (yes, 5 bedrooms, one of which makes an excellent office though it does have a closet for use a bedroom). They only built 8 of this model in Meadowridge with a totally different floor plan than you usually see in this highly desirable neighborhood near Riverview Park. If you are looking for a roomy newer style home in the affordable ranges, this is it. Master is 19 x 19 – super generous at this price point. Price 690K.

3/2 in Solvang. Newer built in 1984 so not an old bungalow but instead a newer style home with high ceilings, attached two car garage and more current amenities than many in this typically vintage section of town. This one is unusual in that it has luxury RV parking and a very large professional metal shop accessed via a rear entrance. Like a REAL shop that could be used for any number of things from woodworking, welding, art studio, storage or whatever. Price will be 675K.

New Listings

644 Floral Drive, Solvang (2/3 condo) 445K Floral is a good street and these condos are very generous for the money. Sitting at just below 1600 square feet with a fireplace, large kitchen and attached 2 car garage, they live a like house instead of a condo. Small patio for a little rest and relaxation. Large bath upstairs, one smaller bath downstairs. Just a few blocks to downtown so walking in for a bite is super easy. Both lower and upper school campuses are nearby as well.  HOA is $354.66 per month. Listed by Karin Aitken of BHHS.

Under Contract

561 Oak Ridge Road, Solvang (3/3 + Casita) 855K One of the better buys in the later phases of Skytt. Excellent condition and a perimeter location on a quiet street. Listed by Kris Johnston of Engel and Volkers.
