New Listings

1643 Laurel Avenue, Solvang (2/3 condo) 435K Sharon: Very small low density complex with just a few units and no unnecessary amenities which equates to a very low monthly HOA of $170 per month. This is a very tidy mostly original condition condo with a little over 1300 square feet. Even has a wood burning fireplace.  Just a few blocks to town for a meander in for dinner. Detached garage parking. Part time or full time living works here. Nina: These condos are very conveniently located and have a low HOA. This particular unit is 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom in about 1300 square feet. Listed by Karin Aitken of BHHS.

151 3rd Street, Solvang (3/3 on .27 of an acre) $759,500 Sharon: Time warp 1962, in a good way. Lovingly cared for and preserved. Move in, then decide if or what you want to change later (if anything). Look at the almost 60 year old tile in this place. Still intact, fully serviceable and cheery. Sometimes vintage properties are beat up. Not so here. Lots of life left plus an exemplary location. 3rd St. is an ideal downtown Solvang street for perimeter location and views ….. this one is no exception. Perimeter with beautiful foothill views and an elevated parcel which leaves those below not in the line of site. These are the ingredients that create opportunity. Nina: This home has clearly been well cared for though still boasts its' vintage character. I love the walled in porch, a great space for having tea. 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, over 1800 square feet and on just over a quarter acre.  Listed by John Fredricks of SYV RE.

Price Reductions

4001 Long Valley Road, Santa Ynez (main house + guest house + studio on 18+ acres) Sharon: Was $1,795,000 with a new price of $1,695,000. It is very hard to impossible to find this many separate dwellings, on this much land, at this price. Love it as is or renovate to your hearts content. Views to die for. Privacy delivered through hill top location, gated entry and 360 degree views. Listed by Carole Colone of BHHS.
