Gregory House? Wait... No... Gregory Ain's houses! 3 of em!

3 Gregory Ain designed properties have come on the market in the past few weeks. 

2845 Avenel St. # 1/2
A condo in the esteemed Avelel Housing Project in Silver Lake. Built in 1947 the unit is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom 1,114 SF mid-century showcase.  It is meticulous but expensive. Hitting the streets at $729,000 with a $300/month HOA, you better have some cash in the bank.  At $654/SF it might not appraise.

Then there is 2769 Highview Ave. in Altadena. This home is part of Ain's Park Planned Homes Development. It is a SFR with 3 bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms.  The house is 1,344 SF and sits atop a 7,280 SF lot. Also thoughtfully, tastefully and conscientiously renovated & updated it is priced modestly at $619,000 which pencils out to a more reasonable $461/SF. It comes down to where you want to live. Am I right?

A few weeks ago, another Gregory Ain residence became available. 3814 Moor St. in Mar Vista. Built in 1948 and having been seriously "lived in," It comes replete with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and all of the original "charm" you could ask for.  Weighing in at 1,414 SF with a 6,489 SF lot. it has potential.  It's a fixer, so bring your vision... and a broom.  It's listed at $649,500.

SCOOP! Amazing pad in Silver Lake not listed yet. Buy it before it hit's the MLS.

This property won't be on the market for a few weeks, but YOU can buy it now!  I had the opportunity to preview it this week.  It is spectacular, unique, unexpected.  Hidden behind gates on an unassuming street one would never imagine that this 1920's villa (overused term but appropriate here) which sits on a 12,000 SF lot could exist in this neighborhood of bungalows and modest homes.

The expansive estate has 4 bedrooms in the main house plus a studio with it's own bathroom and separate entrance.  It has a home gym, a sauna...

9 decks (YES... That's NINE decks) provide an epic view from all sides of the house. A rooftop deck literally gives way to a 360 degree view.

3 Flat grassy yards and a courtyard take advantage of the 12,000 SF lot.

Meticulously restored and updated with almost $400,000 in upgrades, the result of this 3 year project is stunning.

Priced to sell quickly, it will be listed at $1,489,000 but the agents listing this property tell me the sellers will look at offers before it officially hits the market.
