This weekend promises to be a STELLAR weekend for Open House – however, it may not be the best weekend for bargain shopping. It seems like all the showstopper listings got together and decided to show off their stuff all at the same time.
Let’s start with my favorite of the week… 1617 Cleveland. ALERT!! This is open as a special Twilight Open TODAY, Friday 4 – 7 PM. Can you perk up and say, “Hello, Gorgeous?” Located on one of Northwest Glendale’s prestige blocks, this Spanish Colonial home is a Mini Estate. The 27,263 SF lot is one of the largest flat lots in Glendale and every inch is expertly manicured and developed. Pool, spa, sport court, guest house are all beautifully laid out and there is a raised bed garden that makes me weep for joy. Too much? Dunno- you need to look and tell me what you think. The house? Oh, my. Is Gorgeousity a word? It should be- and I would use that word here. The listing agent has done a fabulous job of researching the history- tell her I said, “Hey” and ask here for the home’s biography.
The next Best Bet is my own 1545 Ard Eevin. Don’t let the simple exterior fool you! There is a serene and compelling energy that greats you at the front door. The current owners remodeled this home with the idea that they would never leave- everything they did was first class. From the Cook’s Kitchen to the Entertainment Yard to the Meditation Garden- it is all designed for easy, tranquil living. I am speaking at the National Association of Realtor’s Convention this weekend, so you’ll get to meet my newest star, Monica Lopez. Tell her I said you can have an extra chocolate chip cookie. Open Sunday, 1 – 4 PM
The last home on my Best Bet list is 2754 Mayfield in La Crescenta. I picked this one because it is the LOWEST priced home on the list at $698,000 (I know, right?). Now, I must confess that I have not seen this one. It sold right away…. but the deal fell apart and it is back on the market. It is a large home for the price- 2100 SF and it is built in 1990- practically a new hoe by our standards! I would guess that it has the modern floor plan we all love- family room/kitchen and a large master suite upstairs. Maybe this home fell out of escrow because YOU are the one who should buy it. Open Sunday, 2 – 4 PM
Ok, as always, here is a sample of the homes open this weekend:
