I see over 150 days and no buyers.Even in Santa Fe NM the trees don't get in the way of your sun sets. Maybe thats it.Beauty don't come cheap.Even when radiation is creeping up on East Coast.

Wow. I am in love. So beautiful and well balanced.
Sure got a shock when I read the price. Guess the old location is everything.

Intrigued, so I hunted (and hunted) for more info, and from what I could find, was origninally
An artist colony. Fire burnt most of it down.

This is the sort of development I'm afraid of: homes that are tiny, and yet utterly unaffordable. Strictly for millionaire hobbits.

What a beautiful little home! And that fireplace...wow. Crazy price but who cares, it's gorgeous to look at.

Thanks for those links, Anonymous. Interesting to see that land prices have taken over the artist's colony, but that the old traditions in the neighborhood carry on, albeit dialed back a bit in wild pagan enthusiasm.

Some time back, I wondered who, if anyone, is documenting the history of communities like these. The whole of the counterculture of the 1960's and before seems to have been swept under the rug by the culture wars that began in the 1980's.

Somewhat unrelated, but still a good read is the history of the Diggers, as described by the previous residents of the Morningstar community in N. California: http://www.diggers.org/homefree/hfh_int.html

I can't believe that this house in Santa Barbara is a million dollars. The home builders in Atlanta, Georgia could built a ton of homes with that kind of money. It just goes to show, how expensive California is.
