SANTA BARBARA, CA – Village Properties congratulates Pamela Regan, who represented the seller in this transaction.
Inspired by the country homes in France, this Hope Ranch estate evokes the casual Santa Barbara lifestyle. Located along a private gated drive, and sited on approximately 2.9 oak studded acres, it is just a short distance from the private beach. Attention to detail is evident at every turn, from the hand hewn white oak floors, custom moldings and antique light fixtures chosen in Paris.
The main house floor plan is perfect for comfortable, casual living and entertaining. In the center of the well-equipped kitchen stands a massive travertine island. The covered dining patio, overlooking the pool, and the Santa Ynez Mountains is outfitted with a Viking built-in BBQ, heaters, and limestone pavers.
Both the formal dining and living rooms feature French doors leading to a wrap-around limestone patio enclosed with custom wrought iron railings. The 18th century fireplace surround, tray ceilings, and custom conservatory style windows enhance the living room.
The generous first floor master suite features dual walk-in closets, and a marble-tiled bathroom. There are three family bedrooms, three-and-one-half baths, two offices and a family room with a fireplace just off the kitchen. Separate guesthouse, and temperature controlled wine cellar are just steps away. The original barn can still be used for horses or provide useful storage.

The number one question Buyers ask their agent is “how long has the house been on the market?”
If your home has been on the market too long, Buyers will begin to think there may be something wrong with the house. They may wonder why someone else hasn’t made an offer. It is normal for them to think they are in the drivers seat, and they will try to negotiate a better price. It is just human nature to think this way.
The single most important factor to consider when selling a house is pricing the house correctly; it's picking the right price tag: how much your house is worth. If you overprice your overprice the house you will lose the freshness of the home's appeal after the first two to three weeks of showings. After 21 days, demand and interest wane. On the other hand, don't worry about pricing it too low because homes priced below market value often will receive multiple offers, which will then drive up the price to market.
