Last month the most expensive La Crescenta home sale was 4927 El Sereno Ave. Not very luxurious, this home sold for $1,340,000. Likely the attraction for this fixer upper was the 1/2 acre lot in a very private setting. Most Los Angeles home buyers love land.
MLS remarks read: This single level Traditional Ranch home was originally built in 1950 for Ben Sharpsteen, the prolific producer and director of many of Disney’s most famous movies, including Pinocchio and Dumbo. The wonderful open floor plan features a classic entry with original tile flooring, a bright kitchen with stainless steel appliances that opens to bar and dining area, as well as to the large family room with brick fireplace, bookshelves, beamed ceilings, and sliding glass doors to one the many outdoor spaces. The living room also features built-in bookshelves, a fireplace and sliding glass doors to another patio area. In addition to the 3 bedrooms and two baths in the main house, there is a 551 sq. foot, one bedroom casita with 3/4 bath. To top it all off, this home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac on a large lot with mountain views in an award winning school district.
I am certain the buyer will be making lots of improvements to this La Crescenta fixer.
