Modern Meets Traditional With Land & A View In Style in Studio City

I had the pleasure of seeing this property in the hills of Studio City this past week, and I must say I really really liked it. The owner, who I met with and was great, did a fantastic job on the remodeling of the property and was able to create a nice mix of traditional and modern finishes that will appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers. They took what was a nice but dated property in a great location on a large lot and turned it into a special trophy property. The base of the home is the 8' wide white oak flooring, open spaces, and disappearing walls of glass (a personal favorite of mine). The chef's kitchen has been updated with "marble counters, custom-milled high-end floor to ceiling cabinetry, farmhouse sinks, and all top of the line appliances(Thermador, La Cornufe, Bosh)." The landscaping was clearly professionally done from the water feature in the entryway to the multiple private patios off of the bedrooms to the lush backyard with pool, fire pit, and plenty of green grass to run on. This property has great valley views, and is simply a must see if you are looking for a home in this price range.

Stylin' Mid-Century View Home Under $660K

Cool redone mid-century view home in the hills above Universal Studios with head on valley views. Everything looks to be nicely updated with bamboo wood flooring, new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and walls of glass allowing natural light to flood the property. The living room's centerpiece is a solid concrete fireplace. The open floor plan allows the space to feel much larger then the square footage suggests. On a nice flat over 7,000sq. ft lot there is a good sized yard for outdoor activities. At a good price in a prime location, if you have been waiting for a sleek mid-century modern with views at a reasonable price, this could be it.

SOLD! Mid-Century View Home in the Oaks of Los Feliz (Represented Buyer)

I had the privilege of representing the buyer on this home in the highly desirable "Oaks" area of Los Feliz. The property is a mid-century home built in 1950 with walls of glass opening up to a large deck in the front with head on downtown skyline views. The back side of the home is also mostly all glass and leads out to a peaceful retreat with a spa, fire pit, and relaxing waterfall. Obviously the glass allows for the home to be flooded with natural light throughout most of the day. With hardwood flooring, great retro details, this home just needs a bit of depersonalizing and touch ups here and there and will shine into a great mid-century modern property in an A+ neighborhood. I am not sure how much work the owner's will do, but I am thinking it may really pop if painted white; it would resemble the outside of this updated and recently sold property. What do you think?

If you like the home keep it in mind, as it will probably be on the market for lease very soon!

Hollywood Hills Home With Explosive Views

A post and beam home high up in the Hollywood Hills with high ceilings and walls of glass leading out to jaw dropping views of the city below. The property is in coveted Beachwood Canyon and on a private knoll up a long driveway at the end of a cul-de-sac street. While the home could use some further updating, the kitchens and flooring have been recently redone. The floor plan is wide open and is ideal for my tastes. From almost every room of this home, one has either spectacular views of Hollywood, the downtown skyline, or the Hollywood sign; on a clear day one can even see out to the ocean. There is potential to both expand the property, as well as a flat additional parcel at the back of the lot (last picture) that is included in the sale. The additional parcel could be perfect for a pool or guest home. With a bit of love and attention, this one could be magical, as the bones and space is all there for it.

Franklin Hills Architectural

I look at listings on the MLS all day long, and there are some good ones, but not a lot of them that "pop" and have that "wow" factor. This one is not perfect, as it has just two bedrooms and does not have a real master bath; however, I have seen it in person twice now and it has that special quality about it without question. It isn't really anything novel, but it has the features I simply love; including, high ceilings, an open floor plan with a mix of white walls and walls of glass, and views. The centerpiece of the home is it's main living/dining room area, which has interesting polished cork flooring as it's base and draws the outside in through the glass. It also has a great retro feeling with many wood built ins. The kitchen has been updated with stone counters, modern stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast area. The master bedroom is very large with a sitting area off the bedroom, fireplace, and built in desk. Lastly, in addition to the large deck featuring 180 degree views from upstairs, it does have a decent sized flat yard downstairs with eco friendly landscaping, and there is certainly room for a pool should one want.

Redone Spanish Pool Home in Silver Lake Hills

For the lovers of Spanish style homes but with modern finishes, this may be the one you have been waiting for. Lying in a great location in the Silver Lake hills with nice views of the city and downtown below, is this upgraded gem. While maintaining it's charm, it was built in 1931, it has been "impeccably renovated" and is ready for a new buyer to enjoy. In addition to the main 3 bed / 3 bath house, there is also a guest house for your out of town guests, or could even be utilized as an office space. The listing describes the backyard by saying, "The rear garden and pool area is incredible for entertaining, and is fully equipped with a zoned sound system, BBQ /dining area, fountain, outdoor shower and large sunning deck." These are all the pictures currently available, but from the looks of them, the house looks good.

Mid-Century Modern On Great Studio City Street

I have seen this home previously, as it has floated on and off the market for a year or so, and in fact was listed as high as $2,499,000 in April of 2010. I am not sure it is a $2.5M home; however, at almost $1M less I think it is definitely worth talking about. Lying in a prime view street in the Wrightwood Estates, this designer owned mid-century home has been updated with clean lines and superior finishes throughout. I wish there were more interior shots available, but the living room and kitchen look great, and I love the way the walls of glass disappear and lead out to the stunning pool and views. The backyard looks sublime as one either lounges by the pool, or runs around on the flat grass with endless views of the valley below. At 3,000 sq. ft with easy access to everything in Los Angeles, this one looks like a winner. Just imagine what the price would be if it were on the other side of the hill...double?

Sunset Strip Stunner w/ Views

Designer done new opportunity for a hip buyer on prime lower Sunset Plaza Dr. Entertaining deck with jetliner views and private pool create great outdoor spaces to complement the redone modern interior. Based on the pictures the property looks great. Done with a definite designer's eye with top level finishes like the custom kitchen, and Dorn Bracht and Grohe fixtures in a great location with views above the Sunset Strip! The listing sums up the house by saying, "This is a done “Strip” listing priced to sell." For the most part, I would have to agree.

Incredible Opportunity With Views In Sherman Oaks

This almost 3,500 sq. ft property with incredible views represents a great opportunity for either a buyer looking to create their dream house, or an investor looking to fix and flip the property. Located high up in the hills of Sherman Oaks with easy access to the Westside or Hollywood this home is being sold by it's original owner and is the first time ever on the market. The listing has limited pictures, but does mention that it has a great entertainer's open floor plan and pool. With other properties on this street currently on the market at $1.5M and almost $1.7M, this listing is clearly an opportunity to be taken advantage of.

I believe there are tremendous potential lying in several of these mid-century original homes in the hills of Sherman Oaks. They all seem to have the nice open floor plans, pools, and incredible views. Also, there is a very limited supply of redone homes done by real designers in this area, which means a savvy investor may be able to command top dollar when it comes time to resell the home.
