What a well-executed listing description for this 1962 four bedroom, three bathroom house in the Cahuenga Pass part of Studio City. It starts off with the big draws: "View and a pool! Reduced $100k!" And then emphasizes the 180 degree views and house's open floor plan. And it's right on realistic: "While a cosmetic fixer, the home has terrific features such as an open living room, a large wet bar, a large kitchen, dual fireplaces and an elegant master suite with views of the pool and the Valley." It's true--get rid of those kitchen cabinets and the wallpaper in that foyer-type room and you could certainly be cooking with gas.
This house came on the market in June at $1.399 million and went the movie trailer route, opening the description with: "From time to time, a homes comes on the market with an amazing floorplan and spectacular unostructed views. This is one of them." We'll see how it goes with the punched up listing and a new asking price of $1.299 million.
