High Lands!!!!

Hitting the market this week is a wonderful post & beam, mid-century home (c. 1958) nestled in the coveted Moreno Highlands which overlooks the Silver Lake Reservoir. The area is superb, with sweeping mountain and reservoir views, just moments from Ivanhoe elementary school and very close to shops and restaurants.  This property features a large, mostly-flat, secluded lot with ample room for a pool.  The home is in exceptional shape having been updated without destroying the integrity of its mid-century brand.  It is light and open; perfect for a couple or single-person wishing to experience minimalism, privacy and serenity. 

The home has a great view of the reservoir (wondering what’s going on with all those balls?), the flats and the beautiful San Gabrials beyond. It boasts an additional unit downstairs that could be rented or used for an office or studio. Nice commute! 

It is listed for $885,000, which at $601.22/Square Foot might seem high for Silver Lake. It is...  and it isn’t.  For the location, the condition of the home and the desirability of the architecture, it will appraise and it will sell for over asking.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the sellers are already deliberating over an offer or two as I write this! 

If you want it… Act quickly!  Let me know if I can help you buy this house!
