Price Reduced on Sharp Orcutt Home!

3901 Terrace Av - $395,000

3901 Terrace Av – $395,000

Serious homeowners, serious about selling!  Today, this unique Orcutt home is even more of a bargain than before, as the price has dropped from $395,000 to $385,000!  Re-designed just a few years ago to reduce water consumption, the back yard living space is “hard-scaped”, meaning the only lawn requiring water in our current drought is the front lawn.  In the back, you can enjoy a fire pit, the picnic table and benches, the cool playhouse (or storage) and the upper terrace where your green thumb can shine!  Fruit trees include apple, apricot, plum and pomegranate, but you can easily add a great vegetable garden too!

Inside, enjoy the gorgeous stained concrete flooring throughout the home — just perfect for anyone with allergies, or perhaps someone using a wheelchair — and who wouldn’t love the beautiful kitchen!  Newer roof, too!

I introduced this home last week, so just click here to go to that post, review the details, and watch the virtual tour — then call me for an appointment to see it before it’s gone!

I’m easily reached at (805)937-5777 or use the Contact form below, and I’ll get right back to you!  Thanks!

Unique & Delicious New Listing in Orcutt!

Exterior croppedI had to say that: delicious!  It really is a one-of-a-kind 3+2 in Orcutt, because the owners have put so much personality into it that it is hard not to love!  First, it’s perfect for anyone suffering from allergies, as there is absolutely no carpet in this home!  Yet far from being bored with the standard 18″ tile so common these days, these floors are tastefully stained concrete.  Talk about easy to care for, especially if your household includes kids and/or pets!  How about someone using a wheelchair? Piece of cake!

Enjoy the video, then continue reading!

What about entertaining? The owners removed some inhibiting walls, vaulted the ceilings in the living areas, and voila! What was once a boxy, cumbersome space is now wide open and ready for the next party!  Guests flow easily between the kitchen, great room and back yard, and the hosts get to enjoy everything too, even while cooking in the (ta-da) gorgeous remodeled kitchen!  Dark cabinets, gleaming stainless steel appliances and stained concrete counters complete this Pottery Barn-style kitchen.  When not entertaining, the long counter/bar is the ideal spot for the kids to use for doing their homework while mom and dad prepare dinner.

For the conservationist in you, or okay, maybe the lazy side of you, the entire back yard has been hard-scaped so all you need to do is water the plants you’ve potted, and the fruit trees (apricot, plum, apple and pomegranate)!  Of course if you love to garden, and prefer to grow your own veggies, there is a perfect space that runs the width of the property on the terraced portion of the yard!  Otherwise, you can just enjoy your weekends around the firepit and picnic table!  The two side yards are wide, and one is currently used as a dog run.

The list of improvements to the house goes on and on, so you’ll want to give me a call to come see this chic single level home in the Orcutt School District.  Discover for yourself!  Key facts: not too big, not too small, kitchen and baths stylishly remodeled, newer roof, windows replaced throughout, and absolutely easy care!!  Come see this little oasis before it’s gone!

Give me a call at (805)937-5777 or complete the Contact form below.  Let the adventure begin!

Our final Older Americans Month event in May is the Wiser Worker Job Fair at the Santa Maria Fairpark on the 20th. This is the second job fair that OASIS has put on, and it is the only one on the Central Coast that is older adult focused. As we all know, retirement hasnt been easy these days, and the Santa Maria Valley has a high unemployment rate. We have some big time employers coming to this event that are specifically looking to interview and hire people 50 years of age and older.  The doors open at 11 a.m. and it ends at 3 p.m; May 20th.

New Foxenwood Estates Listing!

Exterior for my siteThis is not the new listing I mentioned last week that was “coming up soon”.  This is not a fixer!  It features over 3100 square feet on a large lot of over 1/3 acre, and is unique in that it includes a guest apartment! Four bedrooms upstairs in the main house, and the apartment has its own living room, kitchen, bedroom, bath and private entrance.  The main house has a formal living room and dining room, family room with a fireplace and built-in bookcase, 2.5 baths and a kitchen with an eating area.  The kitchen was remodeled around 5 years ago, with new cabinetry, granite counters and stainless appliances.  Featured in almost all rooms are newer vinyl dual pane windows and plantation shutters.

The two car garage is detached, with two rooms at the back that can be used for about anything: an art studio, playroom, craft/hobby room, exercise room or just for extra storage!  Nice back yard with some fruit trees and lawn areas, plus a wood deck for BBQs! A truly unique, custom home waiting for a new owner, offered at $575,000.

And please remember the added benefit for Foxenwood Estates residents: the Foxenwood Tennis & Swim Club!  Click here to learn more about obtaining a membership; there is a one-time fee of $260, and a monthly fee of $60 for the entire family allows use of the gorgeous pool, spa, tennis courts, exercise room and lovely clubhouse!

Please give me a call for more information: (805)937-5777.  If you are working with a Realtor®, please let him/her know you would like to see this great home!

 

Available Soon!

coming-soon-curtainsComing up next week, in fact, is my new listing on a large corner lot in Orcutt!  It has been a rental for years, so while it is not a true “fixer”, it will require a little TLC to bring it up to current standards.  Updating might include new light fixtures, some flooring, fresh paint, and other decorator touches as desired.  Appliances are included, but with the exception of a year-old microwave oven, they are older — and all are without warranty.  That’s a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, microwave oven, gas range and a refrigerator.

This home is currently one of only 4 single family homes in Orcutt priced under $300,000.  Priced at $274,900, it is also the largest, measuring in at 1752 square feet, per county records.

If you appreciate Orcutt for the suburban quality and small town feel, and don’t mind a little work to get there at a lower price, in a rising market, this could be the one you are looking for!

I will post photos later this week!

Meanwhile, if you have any questions, just give me a call at (805)937-5777 or complete the Contact form below.  Thanks!

Rare 4 Bedroom Condo – New Listing!

Front Exterior original sizeLike the carefree condo lifestyle, but need more bedrooms than the standard condo affords?  Here it is!  My new listing has 4 bedrooms, including a spacious master suite with its own balcony and an entire wall of closets, so you’ll have plenty of room for guests, an office, or maybe you can fill those rooms with your very own family members!

Features

Special features of this home include an updated kitchen with granite counters, tile back-splash, plenty of storage and all appliances included — refrigerator, gas range, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer!  Easy-care, low maintenance laminate floors are perfect for pet-owners or folks with allergies, as there is no carpet in this home.  There is a raised-hearth fireplace in the living room for cozy evenings at home, with the convenience of a gas starter; the dining area has built-in glass-front cabinets for “show-me-off” storage — perhaps your favorite china?

There are 2 full baths upstairs, and a powder room on the main level.  The laundry area is located in the attached 2 car garage.  Located in the newest section of Northpoint Village, it was built in 1990 and the patio overlooks the wooded greenbelt area on the south side of the community.  Monthly homeowner association dues are $320, and include professional management and general liability insurance, and Northpoint Village amenities such as a sparkling swimming pool, spa, BBQ areas, playground, sports and tennis courts!

Did I mention — Northpoint Village is within the acclaimed Orcutt School District? Righetti High and St. Joseph’s High are both within easy walking distance.  The proximity to Highway 135 makes it an easy 20 minute commute to Vandenberg AFB, while the newly opened Union Valley Parkway on/off ramp provides easy access to the 101 freeway!
