Noteworthy new listings….
Just two years ago, $9 million would’ve all but guaranteed you an ocean view, but now it might only buy a peek of the mountains, if 1115 Clover Lane ($9.825 million) is any indication. The Riven Rock house recovered nicely from damage during the debris flow, and that turnkey quality is likely to serve it well in this market. Note the ceiling of skylights in the family room.
The 2007 contemporary at 2662 Sycamore Canyon Road ($10.9 million) sold last September for $9.4 million; now it’s back for an attempted flip at $1.5 million more. Only the furniture changed.
Those of us fond of California cottage–style houses will find a lot to drool over at 1077 Summit Road ($6.375 million), where the only questions are exactly how low the ceilings are in some rooms and how much noise makes its way over from Hot Springs Road and the 101. Bonus points, though, for walkability to Coast Village Road and the Montecito Club. And that cobblestone motor court is dreamy.
I could quibble with some of the finishes at 1117 Las Alturas Road ($5.65 million), built in 2014, but it’s turnkey enough and big (4,664 square feet) for the Riviera. I do wish the neighbors were a bit farther away—one clearly has a sightline to the pool.
You could totally create some juicy content for your OnlyFans at 1806 San Marcos Pass Road ($2.595 million), with its sleek lines, hot tub, group shower, and rope swing. Just don’t invite any overnight guests unless you mean it; the 750-square-foot house has one bedroom. If that wasn’t enough to induce sticker shock, consider that the property is presumably within earshot of Highway 154.
Pushed back and up off the street, the sweet 1923 Spanish-Craftsman house at 2310 State Street ($1.995 million) has pretty impeccable interiors. Plus, a hot tub, fire pit, and two-car garage.
I don’t think it would take all that much to make 895 Paseo Ferrelo ($1.895 million) into a little Lower Riviera jewel box—and it has a guest house.
I’d be curious too see comps for 725 N. Ontare Road ($2.758 million). On one hand, there are five bedrooms. On the other hand, the “park-like” .34 acre property is right on a main road, the renovation 13 years ago hasn’t aged all that well, there’s no pool, and three of the bedrooms share one bath.
Leaving aside the attic toilet, 517 De La Vista Avenue ($1.795 million) is a perfectly redone 1922 Craftsman cottage in the Bungalow Haven neighborhood.
And a couple others worth checking out:
••• 2623 Dorking Place ($1.795 million): Rustic 1977 fixer in Mission Canyon (below).
••• 4613 Via Rubi ($2.45 million): For those who like wall-to-wall carpet.
