Deal of the weekend in Valley Village
This house at 5236 Bellaire in Valley Village impressed me. It’s a 2+1.5, 1310 sf on a 6982 sf lot, with an added-on den and a screened-in patio and has a new roof, new windows, and sparkling pool. The decorating is completely dated but the house is priced to sell at $525k. There is real pride of ownership here -- you can tell that the senior owner has expertly fixed and improved anything that has broken there for the 40+ years he’s lived there. I bet there’s not a single screw that needs tightening on the property. Again, the decorating is dated, but the house is in pristine condition and is in a terrific location, too. And since yesterday was Fathers' Day, here's my belated shout-out to all the senior dads and grandfathers who knew how to fix absolutely everything!
