Curbed LA PriceChopper: We Choose You, Mar Vista

Today's pricechopper visits our old friend Mar Vista, where nothing seems to happen beyond a few chops here and there. We found some lovely homes suffering the inglorious chop. We hope they sell and make two families very happy. Until then, cho, chop.

1) What/Where: 3 beds/3 baths, like a "Stacked up tree house"(above)
Pricechopped: Twice
Price Reduced: 06/02/07 -- $2,250,000 to $2,080,000
Price Reduced: 06/21/07 -- $2,080,000 to $1,945,000
Days on Market: 71
The Skinny: This interesting home desigend by architect Jennifer Wen, or Jen Wen as we like to call her, is described as "Space poetry on a knoll." Part loft, part tree house, part zen garden, and chopped twice. Sub-2 million is very, very nice. That rhymes.

2) What/Where: 4 beds/5 bath on a hill with "tons of storage+++!"
Pricechopped: One up and three down
Price Reduced: 05/02/07 -- $1,989,000 to $1,969,000
Price Reduced: 05/05/07 -- $1,969,000 to $1,960,000
Price Increased: 05/08/07 -- $1,960,000 to $1,969,000
Price Reduced: 06/16/07 -- $1,969,000 to $1,949,000
Days on the Market: 108
The Skinny: The fun geometric outside gives way to your standard interior. Sure there are granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, plus a small grassy yard. However, Movoto says there are three Starbucks within 1.1 miles. Did we mention it's on a hill. Oh yeah, we did.

3) What/Where: 3 beds/1 bath with potential
Pricechopped: Down, below a million
Price Reduced: 05/04/07 -- $1,075,000 to $1,050,000
Price Reduced: 06/05/07 -- $1,050,000 to $990,000
Days on the Market: 111
The Skinny: You're not so much buying this house as you are buying the potential of this house with an added second floor. As noted in the listing "There is potential view from the garage roof." The interior features some nice wood beamed ceilings and a fireplace. This one also sits on a hill.
