Gated Entry to Elkhorn Estates

Most of executive and luxury homes in the Santa Maria area are in the unincorporated area of Orcutt which is located to the south of the city of Santa Maria. From the secluded affluence of Lake Marie Estates, the tony gated community of Elkhorn Estates, to a variety of high end horse properties, Orcutt has a lot to offer the executive and luxury home buyer. In Orcutt you can still obtain a rustic casual elegance or a satisfying surburban sophistication. With great test scores for their schools, a Farmer’s Market every Tuesday, and the revitalization of downtown “Old Orcutt” as a walkable core with shops and restaurants, many would choose no other spot to live on the Central Coast.

In the popular Foxenwood Estates area, there were approximately 6 re-sales in December, with an average selling price of $585,000. They ranged from a $474,000, 2600 sq. ft. home built in 1985 (which needed updating) to a fully updated and upgraded 3300 sq. ft., 4 bedroom, 3 bath executive home on a lot just shy of an acre which sold for $820,000. As the Foxenwood Estates homes were built beginning in the late 70’s, many need updating to the kitchen and baths. The homes that have not been updated tend to sell for less, but they provide an opportunity for a new owner to purchase a home in a desirable area at a lower tax basis and then customize it to their taste. For those who want the area, but desire a little less space, there are also re-sale townhomes in Foxenwood Estates, which offer floor plans around 2000 sq. ft. and are priced starting just shy of $300,000. Newly built townhomes in the area are priced between $500,000 – $600,000.
