For Sale $575,000.00

July 25, 2011

One more great house for sale… But this time it’s old Hollywood glamor (not at it’s best) pulling my heartstrings.  Maybe it’s the memories of old Spanish Mediterranean homes around my childhood home, maybe it’s the allure of a time gone by – where things were built to a different standard and a higher level of quality – and maybe just maybe I have already lived a life where a home like this played an important role.  Maybe I just love the style of the thick stucco walls and graceful archways of architectural style.  I know I would love decorating and living in a house like, even though the interiors as they are would scare away most contractors, not to mention buyers.  It can be yours if you’re looking a BIG project in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles.

By the way… you won’t believe how badly the home has been allowed to decay.  I hope someone steps up soon to rescue this beautiful home. I’d like to imagine it become something like this…

…a little bohemian, a little eclectic, with bones that are appropriate to the architecture (note tile floor).  If only!  I have friends looking to relocate to LA, maybe they’ll scoop up this fixer, you never know.

    Click on your own link to see what it’s become….but don’t be too disappointed. She’s not as interesting as you would have liked or made her.

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i
    own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?

    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.
