What I saw on today's Studio City Realtor caravan
Today, I saw some pretty interesting things on the Realtor caravan, in addition to three homes for sale in Studio City.
The first home I saw is way up in the hills, on Wrightwood. It's about $2.5 million. As you can see, it's all about the view -- that's Universal City in the distance. The house was nice, too; built in the 1960's, lots of high ceilings, redone kitchen and baths, etc. But the pool and view is certainly the best part.
The next noteworthy item is this very whimsical front yard, on Alta Mesa. As you see, not all homes in the Studio City and Hollywood Hills are modernist semi-masterpieces. It may not be visible in this pic, but the yard contains statues or plaques of Jesus, Mary, Joseph, an angel, a scarecrow, lots of butterfles and a hula girl, in addition to lots of flowers. It is very pretty in a really different way.
And finally, here's a kitchen with all-steel countertops. This is in a nice home on Bloomfield. I am seeing steel being used more and more for kitchens. Think about this if you're planning to remodel your kitchen any time soon -- this is the latest thing, and granite countertops are looking a bit dated already, believe it or not.
