Cutest house of the week -- in Atwater!
I showed this home at 4122 Edenhurst ($495,000) in Atwater today. Even though it's not large, it was totally impressive -- completely redone, yet period details intact and freshened up. It has a cute (not permitted) guest unit, too and a lovely green backyard. And the neighborhood...! I don't show there very often, but I'm going to pay A LOT more attention to it from now on. Atwater has totally come around in the last few years, the residential homes have been spiffed up and there's lots of pride of ownership evident now in the area. The home prices are less than what you'd find in similar areas. It has cool restaurants, golf courses and horse stables nearby (I stepped in a road apple) and a bike path now runs along the L.A. River. Well, okay, it still has LAUSD schools, but it also has its very own Costco (what more could you want, right?). If you work downtown, in Pasadena or even the east SFV, it's really well-located. It would be a great option for those looking for homes in the $450k-$600k range.
