3461 Canyon Crest Road, Altadena

I know, I know, this isn't exactly Northeast LA, but this house is cool. First time on the market, I'd say it's a kind of Zen Ranch style home. It was built in 1950 by Norwood and Delonge, and it has maintained it's original charm. I'm not a huge wallpaper person, but this house has some great wallpaper! It's three bedrooms, three baths (1,943 sq. ft.) on a 21,000 sq. ft. lot. There are two fireplaces, one in the living room overlooking the lawn, and one in the den. The garage was converted to a neat little studio in the 1950s, and overlooks the back patio and landscaping. Central air and heat have recently been replaced. Listed for $655,000.

This 1927 traditional home just came on the market in Eagle Rock this week. It is located on a 5,663 sq.ft. lot on a great street south of Colorado Boulevard. With 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, this home has been pristinely preserved (original details include the arched window in the living room and the bumble bee hexagonal tile in the kitchen). The kitchen has been updated with newer appliances and newer wood cabinets. The back garden is a real treat, with lush landscaping and a rock spa. I wouldn't mind hanging out in that sanctuary! The house is open today 10:00-2:00. If you'd like to see it any other time, give me a call at 626-844-2256 and we can set up a showing.
