Labels: , , , , , , , ,

What Did That (FLIP) Westwood Home Sell For?

The Westwood home at 1443 Pandora Ave., LA CA 90024 lasted about 18 days on the market before entering escrow on 11/22/13. This property was previously purchased at the end of 2012 for $1,270,000. The original specs...  3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2,113 square feet of living space on the 9,416 sq ft lot, perched up a hilly corner lot . The condition at time of purchase in 2012 was pretty terrible. Not a livable fixer, but one destined to be gutted and redone. And that's exactly what someone did.
The home has been rebuilt and expanded to a 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 3,715 sq ft of living space. Some of the original structure was left and gutted to studs, but they managed to keep the original character in tact. It has that old world feel, but modernized. If you saw the original house and then walked into this, you would hardly of recognized it. I'm sure the former owner would be amazed.
I thought they did a great job transforming what was there to something more modern and appeal-able to the masses. Because it sits high up on the corner lot, you get nice green views and lots of light shining through all the windows. The large gourmet kitchen is great for entertaining and open to the den/family room area for people to enjoy. The master suite is very large; complete with a sitting area and one of the largest walk in closets you will see in Westwood south of Wilshire.
On 12/20/13, 1443 Pandora Ave closed about 97% of the asking price at  $2,399,000 |$646 $/sf|.
According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 5 bath, 3,715 sf of living space on a 9,417 sf lot.

Here are some before and after pictures.
