Noteworthy new listings….
Let’s start with a detour to the Santa Ynez Valley for a look at the architectural statement that is 4105 Woodstock Road ($4.75 million), northwest of Los Olivos. Designed by Fernau & Hartman, the 2010 house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a guest house, and no shortage of interesting moments. I’m not sold on all the decisions, but the pool is definitely a winner.
Interior photos are still in the works for 607 Sand Point Road ($23 million) in Carpinteria, so we’ll have wait to see how much updating the oceanfront property needs. Built in 1963, it last sold in 2012.
Upper East inventory is rare, but whenever a property does come on the market, it tends to do well—so we might reasonably expect the same of 2311 Santa Barbara Street ($4.75 million), even if the interiors are a little blah. According to the listing, the house was “originally designed and built for the William A. Edwards family of Edwards & Plunkett Architects.” Perhaps a new owner will reinstate some of the 1923 style.
612 Cowles Road ($5.45 million) and 621 Cowles Road ($5.325 million) are across the street from one another, the former on the lower side of the hill and the latter up above. When it comes to interiors, 612 is far and away the winner.
The five-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom house at 7030 Shepard Mesa Road ($4.495 million), on Carp’s northeastern edge, needs updating, although I’d suggest a different direction than one in the virtual staging. Note the gents guarding the front door.
The 1971 house at 921 El Rancho Road ($2.7 million) has mountain-chalet vibes and a location, bordering Hale Park, to match. Some of the midcentury stylings—like what appears to be cork paneling—work better than others. P.S. Those doors belong in a French farce.
The big views and midcentury lines of 959 Cheltenham Road ($2.7 million) are likely to make the house a hot property, although it’s tucked up against Kenmore Place.
The two buildings on the L-shaped lot at 504 Hodges Lane ($3.4 million) are almost certainly teardowns. This is a sweet little part of Montecito—and walkable to the Upper Village—but the lot is fairly close to East Valley Road. Offers are due next week.
450 Paseo Del Descanso ($2.195 million) in San Roque was built in 1928, but aside from some rounded archways, the period detail inside has been renovated away over the decades. In its favor is an ADU and a two-car garage; less appealing is the fact that the primary bedroom shares a bathroom in the hall.
And a few others worth checking out:
••• 2631 Montrose Place ($2.195 million): Spec reno; the seller paid $900,000 last August. Look for this to pop for over ask (above).
••• 2252 Stanwood Drive ($3.695 million): Four-bedroom “in the prestigious El Cielito Estates.”
••• 820 Coronel Street ($2.125 million): Asian-ish on the Mesa side of TV Hill (a.k.a. the one with peekaboo fencing).
••• 480 Toro Canyon Road ($2.395 million): “The home is being sold ‘As Is’ with the tenants in place.”
••• 1920 Sycamore Canyon Road ($2.795 million): Right on the road and it wants updating, but big (3,888 square feet) for the price (below).
