Last month the most expensive home sold was 2635 Timberlake Drive La Crescenta. This mid-century Pinecrest home listed for $1,249,000 and sold for $1,370,000. $121,000 over the seller’s asking price. This home entered escrow March 5th. This was just prior to the shelter in place order. Timing is often everything. Interesting to note the sellers purchased this La Crescenta home in 2006 for $950,000.
MLS Remarks Read: Move-in ready Pinecrest beauty with the perfect yard. No neighborhood in La Crescenta draws as much interest and envy as Pinecrest. Its Mid-Century homes were designed by Webster Wiley for JPL scientists, and its residents, fortunate enough to have gotten in, rarely want out. A home like this–neither a time capsule/reno trap, nor a questionable flip–is a rarity. The home is well-maintained, with such features as real hardwood floors, copper plumbing, and dual pane windows. These are supplemented by brand new interior paint, new lighting, and new landscaping with working irrigation. An unusual feature is the added powder room next to the entrance. The main floor consists of a large living room/family room (alternately, living/formal dining), and a large kitchen/dining area (alternately, kitchen/ family room).
Upstairs are two junior bedrooms, full bath, and master suite, while downstairs is a second suite opening up onto the yard. Pinecrest has underground utilities, street lighting and broad streets. Just down the hill is an area gem: Two Strike Park, as well as National Blue Ribbon Schools: Rosemont Middle School and Monte Vista Elementary (which won the award for a second time in 2019). Shopping/FWY and Blue Ribbon CVHS are further down as well.
