Well this little darling has been on the market for 280 days as of this writing and doesn’t seem to be moving as fast as other properties in the neighborhood.  I wonder whatever could be the reason?!  Great street, great schools, perfect Beverly Hills alternative for those with dignity and grace…what is the issue?  Hmmmmmm.  I wonder.  But if you know the answer, vote in the poll above and let your voice be heard!

What this house needs is about $800,000 worth of renovations to bring back a lot of the charm that has been piddled away through 18 renovations too many.  For an example of what I mean, please see the Living Room photo:  the size of the room was expanded by filling in a loggia but leaving everything except the glass that  once was there.  So they didn’t really add to the room at all, they just kind of enclosed a loggia and now have an excellent 9′ x 25′ space to play shuffleboard or indoor Slip n’ Slide.  So…it’s obviously in need of help, but a good architect and a really good demo crew will have their work cut out for them.  As I said, the street is incredible, and if you did it right, you’d have yourself a great house you would keep for life.  Let’s make a deal!

The first BMW 7-Series was a good car but find one today and it’ll take a mountain of cash to make that old gal sing like she once did.  But, if you get one cheap enough and you know you’re going to keep it forever, a car like this is pretty much the ultimate 1980s luxury barge.
