Sure, it took almost a year, a pricechop and a change in brokers, but the Lipetz House was finally sold for close to its recent asking price of just over a million dollars. The LA Times' Hot Property reports Annie Weisman and Bill Macomber have bought the Soriano house and plan to restore it. They have their work cut out for them - the house was in the previous owner's hands for 40 years, resulting in years of deferred maintenance, including cottage cheese ceilings and a 1950s lava rock wall facade, as well as both minor and major structural change done over the years. Still, for just over a $1 million, the Weisman and Macomber are also getting a pedigreed home with 180 degree views of the Valley, intact built-ins and a space immortalized by Julius Shulman.
