The Return of Glassellland?

Glassellland sign in new location 4-29-2013 11-04-52 PM

Our friends at The EastsiderLA and Curbed report that efforts are underway to restore the much-loved and greatly-missed Glasellland sign. Fundraising has begun on Indiegogo with the hope of returning the marker to a yet-to-be-determined (and/or possibly secret) location in the Glassell Park hills.

We’re huge fans of the sign, and loved seeing it as part of the view from our new upcoming listing, NELA Union Modern Homes. Apparently we’re not alone. As of this posting the artist, identified only as “Justin,” has raised $1450.00 toward his very worthwhile cause (his goal was only $500). Looks like the sign is returning and we couldn’t be happier about it.

ReInhabit is pleased to present their latest work of art that you can live in, a beautifully realized 60’s-era Modern in Silver Lake. Many months of design, planning and careful execution have resulted in a gracious hillside home that provides an ideal floor plan and sweeping city views. And it arrives with a twist: For the first time since they started crafting their one-of-a-kind homes in the LA market, ReInhabit has delivered a residence that is already under contract. Tracy Do Real Estate brokered the sale.

Original ceilings made the living, dining and kitchen areas feel cramped — while an unused attic hinted at opportunity. ReInhabit reclaimed has that space, adding new beams to the now-soaring ceiling and opened the space into a Great Room.

31140_18

The result is transformative as the now-combined spaces flow together to create an open, highly functional living area, distinctive for a home of this vintage.

31141_19

The retro-inspired kitchen is finished in reclaimed scaffolding wood, with a rare Western-Holly wall oven and range.

Bedrooms are generously proportioned with a nostalgic nod to both the original home and the era. Bathrooms have been completely remodeled. There is a laundry area plus a two-car garage.

31167_45

Finally there’s the view. From the upper terrace that features a new pergola and multiple sitting areas, a westward-facing vista takes in the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Park Observatory and every sunset yet to come. The buyers of this home saw the potential, and trusted that ReInhabit would make it special. The design+build firm has done that and more, in a space that combines artfulness and practicality in an ideal family home.

A gorgeous photo tour can be found at 1444murray.com. For inquiries, contact Tracy Do Real Estate.

Eagle Rock Ranks #2, so Glassell Park Ranks…?

Each year, Redfin uses a special cocktail of metrics to forecast the “Hottest Neighborhoods” for the months ahead. It was Highland Park taking #1 last year, and sure enough that enclave has been on a rocket ride of rising home values. But now Redfin has a new darling, Eagle Rock, which they call the second hottest neighborhood in the whole U.S. (San Francisco’s Bernal Heights grabbed #1).

It’s a fine honor and well deserved. Having represented home buyers and sellers in Eagle Rock for many years, we have long been seduced by its hilly, tree-lined streets and the mop-n-pop shops and restaurants lining Colorado Blvd. It even has good public schools(!) But we can’t help wondering: If Eagle Rock is #2 in the whole country, where does that put its very close neighbor to the southwest? For our money, it’s the next next big thing: Glassell Park.

IMG_3630

We speak with some authority here. After all our new listing, NELA Union Modern Homes, is at least a small part of the Glassell renaissance. Still under construction, with first-phase availability scheduled for February, these 3-level residences offer plenty of living space in a brand new, earth-friendy package. Dual-pane windows, tankless water heaters, radiant roof barriers, high-efficiency heat and a/c — the list goes on. There’s a community garden, a dog run, beautiful landscaping everywhere, and views of the gorgeous Glassell Park hills. It all comes with the piece of mind you get when your home is built by Warmington Residential, a nearly 90 year-old company now in it’s fourth generation of family ownership.

Priced from the mid-high $400,000’s for a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home of approximately 1200 square feet, NELA Union offers a great way to get into the neighborhood that may well take the “hottest” crown for 2015. Check out Floor Plans and sign up on our interest list at www.nelaunion.com. You can also contact us anytime at Tracy Do Real Estate.
