Here are the week’s top reductions….
350 Las Alturas Road (↓$880K to $2.995M) is like nothing else. Plus, a urinal!
Five bedrooms, five baths, built in 2010 on 1.82 flat acres in central Montecito: 313 San Ysidro Road (↓$625K to $8.875M) has everything but an ocean view.
2225 Las Tunas Road (↓$605K to $4.895M) was built in 1920 but clearly messed with thereafter.
Among the many structures—”three houses, one guest house, a detached studio, and three two-car garages”—at 11.73-acre 1785 Cravens Lane (↓$395K to $6.5M) is one fabulous throwback: the main residence, pictured here, said to have been “built by the Finnish ambassador.”
2638 Puesta Del Sol (↓$300K to $3.85M) is a 1922 three-bedroom house with a two-bedroom ADU, adding up to an elegant little compound near the Museum of Natural History. “The pool,” meanwhile, “is a central magnet of styling mastery and lifestyle joy; it quiets and enlivens all at the same time.” You know, like a speedball.
And a couple others worth checking out:
••• 1745 Grand Avenue (↓$50K to $1.745M, above): Last time I mentioned this house, B. nailed it: “Anna Madrigal could do wonders with it.”
••• 499 Crocker Sperry Drive (↓$255K to $3.995M): Contemporary on the outside, baroque on the inside.
••• 707 Chiquita Road (↓$505K to $2.995M): Called it!
