Westside Architectural Home; Mar Vista

Having recently sold an architectural home in Mar Vista, I know that this is an area that appreciates modern architecture. Here is the newest opportunity to own one in this coveted westside location. Built in 2006 by Bill Tsui, Architect, this is in a desirable location just minutes to the beach. Mar Vista is nice, as one gets a lot more for their money, then in say neighboring Venice, but is in a very close proximity. This is in one of the better parts of Mar Vista as well, and offers a great indoor/outdoor flow to soak in the westside breeze. This property features bamboo wood flooring throughout, a sparkling pool, large windows, and a gourmet kitchen with caeserstone counters and high end appliances. In addition to the wonderful outdoor space, the home also boasts multiple large decks to relax on and smell the clean ocean air. It also has a permitted one bedroom loft style guest apartment in the back, which could be great as an office, when family stays, or even a rental as it has a full kitchen and bath. There are just a handful of modern architectural homes in the area, so when a good one comes up, the buyer's pounce. This just may be that one.

A Peek Inside The Gates of Bel-Air

First things first, the gates are faux gates, and do not stop anyone from coming in. They do however make entering the area appear more grand. I have driven through these gates on numerous occasions as of late to show my listing in middle Bel-Air. These pictures go in order from the entryway through the massive estates of lower Bel-Air up to my listing at 1333 Stradella Road. As you can see, there are some with massive estates with lush rolling lawns , while others are choosing to remodel massive homes that take up the entire property. Speaking of remodeling, it appears that everyone is doing it in this area, as there are about a dozen homes currently undergoing remodeling. This also includes the community repaving roads as well. There are explosive views depending on the location and angle of one's property. The view could be either canyons, city views, or all the way out the majestic ocean. Bel-Air is a premier westside location close to Beverly Hills, Brentwood, UCLA right across Sunset, and provides easy access to the Valley as well. The homes in Bel-Air range in values from $1,000,000 all the way up to about $30,000,000.

Please note that the much publicized recent $85,000,000 sale of the Spelling Estate is South of Sunset in neighboring Holmby Hills, and not Bel-Air.

Enjoy the tour after the break.
