Well its Tuesday, so its Santa Ynez Valley MLS Caravan. There were five properties on the Santa Ynez West schedule. Here are my notes on four (sorry, I didn’t get to the 5th):
This property is located on the Fredensborg Canyon end of Viborg. This, plus the fact that it is up a slight hill, makes for privacy and some barrier to noise from the actively travelled Viborg Road. The home has been attractively upgraded and has handsome Hickory floors. The living room is at the entry level, while most of the rest of the home is accessed up a short flight of stairs. This property is well appointed for an inlaw accommodation or extended family, as it has two master suites on different sides of the home. It also offers a pool and spa on reasonably private grounds. This property is conveniently located to shopping and health services. Please contact me for more info or to set up a showing. Text or call me at 805.588.3616 0r email me at [email protected]
This is a sweet, Solvang cottage-style home, in the heart of town, several blocks south of Mission Drive (Hwy 246). The home is warm and comfortable with some nicely updated baths and open kitchen. It also offers a very large metal shop in the back and RV parking. This might be a perfect spot for retirees looking for a nice home that is centrally located, easy to care for and accommodates big escape toys, such as RVs or boats.

1000 Fredensborg Cyn, Solvang $795,000. “The Farmhouse”. I presented this property in yesterday’s New Listing Alert post,, and found it to be even better in person today. The farmhouse-style home was thoughtfully designed, with a contemporary feel, and clean, artistic touches.
I loved the stained concrete floors, lighted niches and the fact that there were five bedrooms. I need to correct some information from yesterday’s post, in that the master and two other bedrooms are at one end, and the two other bedrooms, one being an office/den candidate, are at the other. The home sits back on the parcel at street level, and the hillside behind, while providing privacy, can be used potentially for agriculture or water toys. There are two other legal, nonconforming buildings on the property. One is wood paneled and has a half bath. This would make for a great office or small studio. The second is smaller and roughly finished inside. With a little work, this second building would make a great kids playhouse. Speaking of kids, this property is in the Ballard School District. And another great benefit…. this property has its own well. Think cheap water.
This property is particularly well priced. Please contact me for more info or to set up a showing. Text or call me at 805.588.3616 0r email me at [email protected]
Unlisted: 5500 Campbell Road, Lompoc, Sta. Rita AVA $795,000. I wrote a Pre-Listing Alert on this Sta Rita AVA ranchette a week ago, and was pleased to actually preview it today, although it is still not listed. Unfortunately, there are no photos, but I will do my best to describe what I saw.
The property is located on Campbell Road, an 8 mile drive of beautiful vineyards and ranches, west of Buellton. Campbell Road is home to big agriculture and variety of ranches. These are the real deal, with little pretense.
The property is beautifully outfitted for horses, with a sand arena, 4 stall barn with tack room, three paddocks and more. Much of this is visible from the large rear redwood deck and cool office or sitting room adjacent to the master bedroom. The home is cozy and cabin-like, with lots of wood and a warm comfortable feeling. There is an additional bedroom and bath and a small loft accessed by a tall ladder. This is a sweet home that is perfectly sited to harmonize with the horse facilities. This property is bordered by a highway, thus there is some road noise.
There is a lot here, and would serve folks who want a sweet property for themselves and their horses. And being in the Sta. Rita AVA, could produce some good grape juice…Please contact me for more info or to set up a showing. Text or call me at 805.588.3616 0r email me at [email protected]
So that’s it for today. Cheers!
