Walkable to Hammonds Beach, the Rosewood Miramar, and Coast Village Road, the adorable 62 Humphrey Road (↓$400K) has location on its side—but time has been less kind. While the house is brimming over with charm, it needs substantial work. Still, Montecito being Montecito, there must be an aspiring interior designer out there willing to take on the challenge…. After two months on the market at $4.75 million, it was just reduced to $4.35 million. There’s an open house this Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
If the orange facade of 705 Riven Rock Road (↓$1M) in Montecito gives you pause, the good folks at Riskin Partners have digitally imagined what it would look like in something crisp and white (below), to match the appealing interior.

Attention, Gaudí lovers! The whimsical 931 Coyote Road (↓$150,800), east of Parma Park, continues to drop its price: It’s now at $2,345,000, down from $2,979,000 in March of 2018 (and assorted cuts thereafter). Check out those curves….
The French-inspired 4178 Cresta Avenue (↓$252K) in Hope Ranch has been on the market an impressive—or depressing, depending on how you look at it—498 days. Perhaps the time is finally right: It started at $7.3 million, and is now at just under $6 million, $300,000 less than the current owner paid for it in February of 2016. The
house chateau is big, private, and in excellent condition. See for yourself at the open house this Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
After only five weeks on the market, brand-new 707 Park Lane (↓$300K) in Montecito got price-chopped to $6.695 million. It was designed and built by Becker Studios, with a hacienda-like shape wrapping around a courtyard pool. I liked it from the moment I stepped inside, but I’ve heard quibbles about the guest rooms. Open this Sunday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
