What Did That Westwood Home At 1566 Kelton Ave Sell For?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 1566 Kelton Ave, LA CA 90024 lasted 18 days on the market before accepting an offer on 11/24/14. This traditional home was clean and in live-able condition, however everything was fairly vintage. Most people would consider that a fixer. What it did have going for it was the size, just over 3,000 sf. My favorite thing about this house was the large vaulted ceiling living/family room, pictured here.

On 12/24/14, 1566 Kelton Ave closed about .61% over the asking price at  $1,800,000 |$596 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 3 bath, 3,022 sq ft of living space on a 7,091 sq ft lot.

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For At 863 Manning Ave?

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For?

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 863 Manning Ave, LA CA 90024 lasted about 27 days on the market before accepting an offer on 10/28/14. The home first hit the market back in August for $2,595,000 and received an offer in the first couple days. However, the buyer decided to back out before doing any inspections and the owners then pulled the home off the active market. Then it was re-listed on 10/2/14 for the same offering price and the owners accepted an offer within the first month.
This home has been remodeled in the past and is in a move-in type condition. To me it looks like those kitchen/bathroom updates were done +/- 15 years ago or so. So not the latest and greatest, but nice. I really like how the home sits way back from the street on a little knoll. This provides privacy and lots of light. However, that comes at a sacrifice to the backyard, as there is very little of it. Just a small patio for outdoor dining and entertaining and a patch of grass.

On 12/23/14, 863 Manning Ave closed about 1.16% under the asking price at  $2,565,00 |$901 $/sf|. According to the MLS, the home is 3 bedrooms/ 3 baths, 2,848 sf of living space on a 9,749 sq ft lot.

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For At 551 Dalehurst Ave

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 551 Dalehurst Ave., LA CA 90024 had previously spent 152 days on the market before being pulled from the active market in October. During that listing period, the home received one price reduction of $155,000, down to $2,595,000. After the house was pulled from the market, the home was quietly available to anyone 'in the know'. It looks like during the holidays, someone got interested in the pocket listing and made a full price offer to purchase.

Rebuilt in 2007, this home is remodeled and in move-in condition. Situated up on a knoll and a sweeping curve, the home gets plenty of light and wide open views.

On 12/24/14, 441 Dalehurst Ave closed at the last asking price at  $2,595,000According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 4 bath, on a 9,094 sq ft lot. Public records states the house square footage is about 2,315. The agent chose to exclude that, so it may be incorrect.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 10329 Dunkirk Ave?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 10329 Dunkirk Ave, LA CA 90025 lasted 24 days on the market before accepting an offer on 11/20/14. This charming 1929 Spanish has fantastic curb appeal, which is probably the most attractive feature at the current moment. Inside, while clean, is fairly dated and could use remodeling throughout. The lot is a little smaller than you will typically find in 90025 and has a very wide frontage. Therefore, the backyard is pretty slim with limited expansive outdoor space.

On 12/16/14, 10329 Dunkirk Ave closed about 91% of the asking price at  $1,297,500 |$805 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 2 bath, 1,612 sq ft of living space on a 5,346 sq ft lot.

463 S Bentley Ave Receives 2nd Price Reduction

Labels: , , , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood Hills home at 463 S Bentley Ave, LA CA 90049 received a price reduction of 2.05% or $46,000, down to $2,199,000. Originally listed August 6th, 2014 for $2,295,000, this is the 2nd price reduction since coming on the market. However, this time the price reduction came via re-listing the house with a different broker at a new price.

This 40's single story traditional looks to be mostly remodeled and in move-in condition. This is a rather large flat lot with just under 10k feet, which is not very common for the Westwood Hills neighborhood. There is also a huge guest house in the rear of the lot. I haven't seen a guesthouse this large in the neighborhood either.

According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 4 bath, 2,532 sq ft of living space on a 9,827 sq ft lot.

2143 Kerwood Ave Receives 4th Price Reduction

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 2143 Kerwood Ave, LA CA 90025 received a price reduction of 1.46% or $26,000, down to $1,749,000. Instead of a price reduction during a current listing, this house was relisted, after a month off the market, with a different agency at a lower price on December 1st, 2014. Listed June 11th, 2014 for $2,195,000, this is the 4th price reduction overall. Built in 2006, this home is updated and in move-in condition. This could be good for someone looking for a home office. There is the main house on the Kerwood/Olympic corner and then a 2 story guesthouse or office in the back of the property with it's own address on Olympic. In fact, the property is set up so that you could have visitors/clients come through a side entrance to visit your office in the guesthouse. And not have to go through the front of the property.

According to the MLS, the home is a 5 bedroom / 4 bath, 4,052 sq ft of living space on a 6,010 sq ft lot.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 2351 Parnell Ave?

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,



The Westwood home at 2351 Parnell Ave, LA CA 90064 lasted 9 days on the market before accepting an offer on 11/13/14. This Spanish house has been upgraded and expanded since being built in 1925 and is in move-in type condition. The biggest change is the great room concept that was created by opening up and enlarging the kitchen and pushing out the back of the house to give room for the vaulted ceiling family room. There is also a nice raised deck off the rear of the house.

On 12/12/14, 2351 Parnell Ave closed about 5.04% over the asking price at  $1,396,000 |$719 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 2 bath, 1,943 sq ft of living space on a 6,757 sq ft lot.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 2102 Selby?

Labels: , , , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 2102 Selby Ave, LA CA 90025 lasted 13 days on the market before accepting an offer on 11/05/14. This lovely late 20's Spanish was updated and in move-in condition. I liked the mix of updating and period details in this house as well. Although I would say the cosmetic updates were modest looking  and not of the high end nature. I believe various system upgrades have been done in the house, such as; upgraded electrical, central ac/heat, copper plumbing and more.

On 12/11/14, 2102 Selby Ave closed about 1.06% over the asking price at  $1,312,765 |$844 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 2 bath, 1,556 sq ft of living space on a 6,763 sq ft lot.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For At 1966 Comstock?

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 1966 Comstock Ave, LA CA 90025 lasted 40 days on the market before accepting an offer on 11/19/14.  While updated, this 1930's Spanish is full of original and restored details throughout. I always appreciate the older Spanish homes that are updated in a way that keep the integrity of the style of the home and aren't butchered with generic home depot upgrades. Comstock is one of my favorite low key streets in this micro neighborhood of Westwood because it's tucked off to the side with little drive through traffic and homes are nicely set into hillsides of the rolling hills.

On 12/03/14, 1966 Comstock Ave closed about 98.7% of the asking price at  $1,900,000 |$670 $/sf|.  According to the MLS, the home is a 5 bedroom / 4 bath, 2,837 sq ft of living space on a 5,530 sq ft lot.
