Large Yard

SOLD! Ranch Style House w/ HUGE Yard; Woodland Hills (Represented Buyer)

Lying on a large corner lot in the desirable Walnut Acres section of Woodland Hills is this ranch style home a Buyer of mine just closed on this past Friday. This was a long road, as this was one of the first properties I showed my client, and then the Seller decided to pull it off the market. After much pushing and follow up after follow up from me, we finally convinced them to sell, and my client got the home she wanted from day one! She affectionately refers to it as "The Barn," due to it's color and appearance from the front, and I think she got a great deal at the end of the day. The lot is all flat and the park like backyard is huge allowing plenty of room to expand the house, put in a pool, or just leave as is and enjoy the space. The home has a nice open floor plan and soaring beamed ceilings in both the living and media room. My client also got a new roof (see last pic vs first one), and in doing so, the contractor was positive that the home is actually 500 sq. ft plus larger then it is listed; which is another great bonus for my client.

This was the Buyer's first home purchase, and I couldn't be happier for them. I think they got a great house at a great deal.

New Hip Mid-Century Modern In My Neighborhood; Franklin Hills

Having recently moved myself to the Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Feliz, I am a big fan of the location and it's proximity to all the goods and services one could want in the Los Feliz Village. This new listing looks great, as it is a super cool updated mid-century modern with a yard. The yard part is key, as it is tough to get a reasonable amount of grass in the hills for under a million dollars. According to the listing, the property features, "Bauhaus- like metal windows, cook's kitchen w/slate floors, limestone counters and stainless appliances including 36" stove." With two master bedrooms, updated baths, and large decks both upstairs with views and downstairs, this one is not to be missed. The closer is the park like backyard, which is great for entertaining or relaxing and soaking up the good life in the hills. If you have been looking for a nice updated mid-century house in the hills, don't miss out on this one.
