So we have come to another week and I have decided to switch up the format of these caravan blogs. Â I reallyÂ didn’tÂ like the cold nature of the old ones, too many numbers and not enough conversation. Â My plan from this point on is to make this more about the things that make a home interesting. Â You will still get prices and cities but it wont look like a spread sheet. Â This is going to be more about what makes a home interesting. Â Now just bare in mind that these are the homes that are on caravan in the Arcadia Association of Realtors weekly meeting so I cant take pictures of everything. Â This is just a little taste of what we see when we are in the field, if you want more information about a home or have questions about something you see, you can always click the contact me button at the top.
Pools are a big Part of Southern California living, and like houses they come in all shapes and sizes. Â This northern Monrovia home featured a pool with stone affects all around and a waterfall for added atmosphere. Â The home was in a great location and had an excellent floor plan and a giant walkin closet. Â Priced right at $799,000 considering everything you got.
Now if you are looking for something a little bigger this Sierra Madre home had a hot tub/pool that was HUGE! Â Located East of Santa Anita this $6.6 Million dollar home featured a library, 2 theaters (one was used as a game room) and tennis courts. I’ll be honest, even with all these things, I feel this house is overpriced but still a great home for someone looking for aÂ palatialÂ estate. Â Remember there is always room for negotiation.
Now lets say you are in the market for something a little more on the modest side. Â Sometimes the best part of a house is itsÂ potential. Â This Duarte home is located south of Duarte road and is in need of some TLC. Â This hot tub looks like it could be something you would make wine in, but if the right buyer gets a hold of it this could come out great. Â Remember there are all types of buyers out there. Â I can’t tell you how many calls we get from people looking for homes they can fix up. Â These are either investors or people looking to make a home truly theres.Â At around $200,000Â investors and home buyers alike have a great opportunity with some interesting conversation pieces.
So lets step away from the pool area and head inside. Â Southern California is also known for some of its moreÂ eccentricÂ personalities. Â Perhaps you or someone you know likes new age living.
This is aÂ JapaneseÂ style meditation room, complete with sliding doors and raised floor. Â Perfect for when you want to come home and get away from it all and reflect within. Â Located in the hills above Arcadia this house also featured a huge library and an elevator. Â On top of that you have your back to the foothills and the front has a great peaceful view. Â Check out the picture below to see the view. Â For $2.6 Million this house is kind of hard to price. Â Its unique and as much as I love this room I’m not sure if everyone else will. Â What do you think?
Here is the view from the bedroom.
I think I might see a deer.
