Initial asking price was $380K...it was under contract 16 days after it came on the market and sold for $365K. 2600 square feet, no basement, 3 bd/3 ba on nearly 1/2 an acre. With some strategic tree pruning in the backyard, there are also views of the mesas and foothills. I love this neighborhood.....

I was in this neighborhood today previewing what I had hoped would be another gem and couldn't resist another "drive by" on this little beauty. Many people ask about the fate of this home post-sale, so I thought I would give you an update. I drove by it previously and the front door was op...

Glass Blocks in Closets

I have seen glass blocks used in closet walls in 50's era homes (traditional and mod) and always assumed it was just a clever way to bring light into an otherwise small dark space. Considering all the clerestory windows I see "walled" over, it wouldn't surprise me if someone did the same w...

A classic example!

Here's a perfect example from our MLS of a 50's ranch home being described as "mid-century modern"... http://www.mymls.com/asp/email_zoomin.asp?PROPERTY_TYPE=RES&LISTING_NUM=504119&AREA=DSE&AgentID=036885&ID=d7cf3f0ca1245f64f231820971ae601b&AgentName=SHANNON+STANBRO Thi...

Go Horizontal

There is a lot of vertical going on (including all those great trees) and I agree that a horizontal fence would be a good addition.

Ah, you're the one who snapped this up before I could get any of my clients in to see it! :wink: Congratulations! I previewed this as soon as it went on the market and the seller was there as I looked through it. Apparently the couple who "built" the home never actually got to live in it. ...

My two cents...

The whole "guilt by association" concept regularly prevents me from divulging that I am a Realtor. Sadly, it is an industry and not a profession...consequently there are very few real estate professionals. NAR (The National Association of Realtors) is very stern about its members not makin...

Neutral Background

I have to agree with the suggestions to go neutral and consistent on your paint scheme. Think "art gallery" and go monochromatic with your paint and major furniture pieces (i.e. sofa fabric) then add color/texture with artwork, accessories, pillows, rugs, etc. I have gone this route and it...

The green room...

that you can see a little bit of (under the enormous stuffed marlin) has carpeted walls. The house is in amazingly good condition, apparently no animals or children have lived here. The walls haven't even been repainted. And not only is the brown fridge still there, but there is a pink one in the la...

I just had to share it... My husband (TomL) and I went to check out this beauty yesterday. I've been blogging abo...
