Noteworthy in Montecito Last Week
Latest Montecito Sale & New Listing Last week saw two listings of note in Montecito. 1930 Jelinda Drive closed escrow after less than 60 days on the market - this house sold in 2016 for $3,185,000 (a great price!) and has been completely renovated. It first came on the market asking $6,995,000 but once they dropped the price to $6,750,000 it went into escrow pretty quickly and closed on Friday. The new listing at 2662 Sycamore Canyon Road is one of those properties that checks all the boxes - sited beautifully on a 3+ acre lot with ocean and mountain views and stunning landscaping that captures the essence of Montecito and our native, natural topography. And then there’s the house. Exquisitely designed by Andy Neumann, it is a seamless, contemporary residence of enduring appeal. Add to all of this, the property is very well priced. And I am hearing that there are already offers. PROPERTY HISTORY: • 930 Jelinda Drive previously sold in 2016 for $3,185,000. It was completely renovated and relisted for $6,995,000 in January 2020.
