Noteworthy new listings….
A few buildings west of the Rosewood Miramar Beach resort, 1556 Miramar Beach ($9.995 million) is a small-but-turnkey house ideal for someone (rich) who loves the beach. On the top floor is a kitchen/living room; down one flight is the primary bedroom; down another flight—and just above the sand—is a guest room. All three levels have decks. The seller paid $7.548 million in April 2021.
I don’t usually include Ojai in these roundups, but 310 E. Matilija Avenue ($3.8 million) is special: the 1874 Montgomery House, currently home to Porch Gallery, is the third-oldest building in town, according to the listing. It’s zoned for live-work, comprising a pair of two-bedroom units and the gallery space, and walkable to everything downtown. P.S. Any guesses about the elevated deck? P.P.S. Porch Gallery is also for sale, but as a separate transaction.
If I understand correctly, all 104 acres of 105 Hollister Ranch Road ($1.95 million), including a big house, were put on the market in August 2021 for $15 million. No one bit, so the price got reduced a few times till it was $11.5 million. In September 2022, the option was added to buy a one-third interest with the aforementioned house for $6.95 million, which appears to be in escrow. So now there’s a one-third share of land only, “with the rights to the Commercial Agricultural and a barn building rights. Potential future Employee house.”
Off Foothill Road above N. La Cumbre Road, 3914 Antone Road ($2.45 million) has midcentury zest—the four-bedroom house was built in 1966—including a fascinating oven (?) that I have to assume is original.
The 1970s must have been an exciting time to be an architect—you could do all sorts of creative things to houses. At 438 Seaview Road ($2.85 million), built in 1976, that means an extremely textured facade, trapezoids galore, a bedroom with an an interior window, and little sets of stairs here and there. The investment required would be more appealing if the lot were a bit bigger, but the location—a hop and a skip to Montecito Union School—may be enough to carry the day.
How awesome would it be to own one of Santa Barbara’s bungalow courts? 509 Fig Avenue ($4.5 million) is a “mix of 12 Studios and a triplex on 509 Fig Ave, and a duplex on 514 Chapala St. Ideal for value-add investor or developer, only 3 units are currently occupied by tenants; some units are already gutted.”
