New Listings

2305 Sunrise Way, Solvang (3/3 on 1+ acre) $1,350,000 Love, love, love, love, love. Did I say love too many times? Not really. I should say it more! Saw this one over the weekend. It is fantabulous. See, I even made up new word to describe this one. That’s how much I love it.  The house is completely renovated with timeless style and is a real class act. The living room begs for Christmas to come, a party or a piano. The family room and kitchen are where the fun, snuggles and relaxing starts and ends. The kitchen is beautifully done, not too big, not too small with quality cabinetry, surfaces and amenities. The seller had been making jam from scratch from the blackberries growing on site which was cooling on the counter (I really wanted to snag some). The bedroom wing is beautifully situated with the guest rooms being very sweet, sunny and inviting. The master is absolutely huge, well appointed, restful and elegant. Two walk in closets, fireplace and a very generous en suite master bath make it perfect. Just outside the master slider is a small private jacuzzi. Venturing out to the garden, you will be looking for the apple tree to pluck Eve’s apple from. It is a garden of Eden nirvana for us gardening types. From graceful lawns, to rose beds, hydrangea gardens, flower beds, berry patches, mature trees and so many more plantings, I lost count. The pool is classic in design and doesn’t take up the entire yard, leaving a nice green lawn backdrop and shady covered porch from which to observe the swimmers. A gardener delight and wonderful place for a party, kids, grandkids or just to let your dogs go for a dip and romp.  Cute little building outside houses a sauna and close by is the small green house. Then on to the huge car barn and shop which is in addition to the attached 2 car garage. Room here for at least 5 cars with covered parking in addition to covered RV parking and two driveways. This campus is a true delight. Water is super cheap water here in Janin at $375 per quarter. Solar panels are owned so power is free. Really, in its price point, this one is the King. If I was buying right now, I would buy this one. See it while you can. Listed by Patty Castillo of Sothebys.

Price Reductions

83 Six Flags Circle, Buellton (3/2 on .15 of an acre) Was 589K with a new price of 579K.  Listed by Efren Pulido of Los Olivos RE.

2727 San Marcos Avenue, Los Olivos (3/2 on .17 of an acre) Was 799K with a new price of 789K. This is a listing in our own inventory. Very good location off the beaten track but still close enough to walk into town via the little pathway that lets you mosey on in without ever hitting Grand Avenue. Nina: In a quaint neighborhood where one home just closed at close to $1.1M and another is being completely remodeled from the ground up, this should be a no-brainer. You really can't beat this Los Olivos location! 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in about 1978 sq ft on a .17 acre lot, the listed price per square foot is about $398. When you compare that to Lucca's $565, that certainly leaves some room for improvement. I will be there tomorrow from 10 to 12 for broker's tour so feel free to stop by and have a look.   Listed by us!!!!
