Updated Spanish Home in the Franklin Hills

Lying in the desirable Franklin Hills neighborhood, this updated Spanish home with modern details is available for you. I really like the living room with it's soaring beamed ceilings, large windows allowing natural light to flood the property, and the charming fireplace. In addition to this area, there is another den with a kiva fireplace. The redone kitchen with eat in area features names like Viking on the high end appliances. The dining area flows out to the serene outdoor spaces with sweeping views of the city, as well as the difficult to find flat grassy yard. The outdoor area has peaceful decks and an in ground spa to relax and soak up the views. This looks like a good one in a fine location, and a nice mix between vintage charm and modern finishes for today's living.

Sleek Spanish, Great Mix of Vintage & Modern; Hollywood Hills

Unfortunately my client's and I got outbid on this one this week and it is now in escrow, but I still thought it was worthy of posting as it a great mix of vintage elements of a 1926 house and sleek modern finishes. I am not even a huge fan of Spanish style homes in general, but my wife is, and we joked that this would be a great compromise for us. I definitely liked it a lot, and do think it appeals to a wide range of buyer's. It has that character in a home people like, but mixed with sleek modern finishes, which team up to make it a winner. I believe it went very close to the current asking price, which is a fairly high number I think for it, but goes to show both the market strengthening, as well as that people will always pay more for a nicely upgraded designer done property oozing with style. Style and views (they don't show in the pics but there are great views above Hollywood and out to the ocean from this house) are somewhat subjective values, as some people may not care about them, but for the right buyer they can be worth a lot. The seller certainly did a great job, no corners were cut, and top notch finishes were chosen. Well done. Congrats to both the seller and eventual new buyer. They both did well for themselves.

This brand new listing N of Los Feliz Blvd in a great Los Feliz location looks good.

Stunning Spanish Property Under the Hollywood Sign

Restored and updated 1926 Spanish property lying high up in the Beachwood Canyon area just below the Hollywood Sign. The indoors was very nicely done with gourmet chef's kitchen with modern appliances, original stenciled beamed ceilings in the large living room with vaulted ceilings, updated baths, and new systems throughout. But what really impressed me about the property was the outdoor space. It is all surrounded by large hedges, so is very private, and also has several meandering pathways leading to flat grassy areas, quiet sitting places for relaxation, and of course a stunning pool and spa. This is a great home for both family living, as well as for entertaining with it's multiple unique outdoor spaces.
