Curbed – PriceChopper: Oilman’s Beautiful 1936 Hacienda is a Steal at $2.45 Million

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

How is this incredible 1936 hacienda still on the market? Cliff May, the father of the California Ranch house, designed the La Habra Heights estate for oilman/banker John Arnholt Smith; it features a central courtyard with a tiled fountain and covered walkways, an olive orchard, an aviary, a pool, and multiple patios across 2.3 acres. The interiors of the four-bedroom, five-bathroom main house are an endless parade of wood and red tile floors, beamed ceilings, and French doors. The property was last seen a year ago asking $ 3 million; now it’s even harder to pass up at $ 2.449 million.

Curbed – New to Market: Questionable Malibu Riviera Motel For Sale For First Time Since 1947 at $7.5 Million

Driving down Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and passing the Malibu Riviera Motel, people might think either “nightmare deathtrap” or “quaint beach-bum digs.” The Yelp reviews waver between those two camps as well. (“Perfect for a surfing trip with friends and family and cheap for Malibu” but also “the manager came after my husband with a hammer.”) Even Google Maps knows they’re “budget accommodations with spartan rooms.” The hostelry doesn’t have an ocean view and sits directly next to PCH (that’s not the ocean you’re hearing), but it’s a hotel on 4.34 acres in Malibu, so now that it’s up for sale, it’s going to list for a cool $ 7.5 million, says The Malibu Real Estate Blog, which spoke to the broker for the property (not yet openly listed on the MLS). The property has been in the same family since 1947, so it’ll be exciting to see how some new blood might shake up the place or carry on the offbeat traditions.

Curbed – New to Market: Mid-Century Mod Time Capsule in Pac Pal Asking $2.2 Million

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

We were pretty on board with this well-preserved post and beam in Pacific Palisades until we saw the salmon oven and the pink-fixtured bathroom. And then we were in love. As the listing says, the 1956 house is “wonderfully untouched”; it comes with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a glass-walled family room, that kitchen “in impeccable original condition,” a covered brick patio, and a “ery large yard that backs up to the hiking trail.” None of this comes cheap: the house is asking $ 2.195 million. Whoever has that kind of scratch, we hope they ignore the listing’s note about “Endless potential for updating, expanding, etc.”

Curbed – On the Market: Very Traditional Two-Story House Overlooking Silver Lake Reservoir Asking $1.6 Million

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

It’s always a triumph to find a house with a staircase in the entryway—a person can really make an entrance in a place like that—and this three-bedroom, two-bathroom near the Silver Lake Reservoir is one of them. There are many nice touches here: a light-filled breakfast nook, a library, a galley kitchen, and wooden sliding doors that lead into the party-sized backyard. The views of the reservoir are easy to catch from the large deck, as well as from the balcony. The house’s 8,352-square-foot lot also leaves “plenty of room for a pool,” in case you were fretting. It’s listed for $ 1.598 million, but act fast because there’s already a sale pending.

Curbed – New to Market: Pay $14.5 Million For the Half-Finished Sunset Strip Dream House the Owner Got Bored Of

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

The listing for this partly-finished mansion above the Sunset Strip is so charmingly frank: “Developers opportunity to finish a home that began as a man’s dream … The Current owner bought another property and has lost interest in this project.” It’s hard to say for sure just who that fickle owner is, but the property is tied to an LLC that’s tied to a fellow named Alex Maimon, who could but might not be the Alex Maimon who was convicted of Ecstasy trafficking in LA back in 2001, but made a deal and ended up spending little or no time in prison. Anyway, whoever’s dream it was, it died 80 percent of the way through. Now some new dreamer has the chance to project his desires onto the potential five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom, 8,800-square-foot house, which also has a beauty salon, infinity pool, and four-car garage, all on a little more than a third of an acre. The owner bought the house in 2010 for $ 2.2 million. Asking price today is $ 14.5 million.

Curbed – Celebrity Real Estate: Iggy Azalea and Nick Young Bought Selena Gomez’s House in Tarzana For $3.45 Million

Monday, November 10th, 2014

First things first, she’s the real estatest (shout out to Friday afternoon!). Painfully uncool Australian rapper Iggy Azalea became a little bit painfully uncooler in late September, when she decided to buy a Disney princess McMansion in the Valley. And not just in the Valley—in Tarzana. Azalea and her boyfriend, Lakers player Nick Young (aka Swaggy P), bought the six-bedroom, seven-and-three-quarter-bathroom house from pop singer Selena Gomez, reports Variety, and we’re being a little too mean, it’s really not so bad at all. (However, it is definitely not the “Prettiest House in the Valley,” as the listing claimed.) It came with dining room, butler’s pantry, wood-burning fireplace, guest suite with separate entrance, a pool, built-in barbecue, fire pit, and a basketball court, all on .83 acres. Gomez bought it in 2011 for $ 2.175 million; Azalea and Young paid $ 3.45 million. Gomez is on to a house in Calabasas near her on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber.
