This week’s noteworthy new listings….
1122 Harbor Hills Lane ($3.395 million), on one of Alta Mesa’s best streets, packs lot of view into its 1,715-square-foot floor plan. The remodeling looks recent but not exactly fresh, and the sleeper-car layout of the guest rooms is awkward.
Buyers have been clamoring for anything near Coast Village Road, but there’s not one surface at 215 Middle Road ($2.75 million) that doesn’t need updating, and the infrastructure is likely old, too. Given all that and the odd floor plan, this is probably a tear down.
The 1936 house at 2326 Wellington Avenue ($1.6 million), on a one-block street just off State Street (between W. Junipero and W. Pueblo), is rich with period detail but in dire need of updating. And one of the two guest rooms has to share the bathroom on the other side of the house.
The flat-roofed Neoclassical-Mediterranean hybrid at 116 Arroqui Road ($2.495 million) is rather close to the 101, but it’s also in the Montecito Union school district. P.S. This is why you don’t put skylights in bedrooms.
“Not your typical Westside offering!” says the listing for 1426 Mountain Avenue ($1.639 million), and it’s true that the recently-ish remodeled 1929 house has period charm, some nice moments, and mountain views.
And a few others worth checking out:
••• 212 W. Figueroa Street ($1.45 million): 1930 cottage with a surprising interior (above).
••• 2187 Lillie Avenue ($1.55 million): on the part of Lillie further from the 101; photos to come.
••• 7350 Shepard Mesa Road ($3 million): big with views but needs attention.
