A home with a view attracts a crowd, and this Glassell Park home was no exception! It's not all about the view here, but you can see downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Century City, the Griffith Park Observatory, and Glendale from both the decks.
Our clients had lived here for many years enjoying the views and quiet location, but it was time to move on so that they could have room for their daughters to run around. We helped them develop a plan to prepare this home to go on the market, while looking in nearby Eagle Rock and South Pasadena for a replacement home. They found a home they loved and we helped them write a compelling offer on that, at the same time putting their current home on the market. The timing worked out well - they'll have a couple of weeks to prepare their new home to live in before moving in!
This 1964 modern featured spacious, wood-beamed high-ceilings upstairs for the kitchen, dining, living and office nook. The two bedrooms were at ground level, one of which opened on to its own balcony. Upgrades included a retrofitted foundation, copper plumbing, a tankless water heater, and a newer roof with four inches of insulation. Structural engineer and architect Arthur Levin, who actually wrote the book on building hillside homes, helped with the design for this small development of 7 hillside homes. With so much to offer, we attracted eight interested buyers to this home.
