This Historic Register house that's practically on top of the 101 was looking pretty rough when we saw it in February--caution tape and pink paint everywhere. The asking price was an ambitious $749,000, but a brave flipper picked the house up in April for $630,000 and got to work on a restoration. Some of the additions are questionable, but it looks like the original details have mostly just been polished up and otherwise left alone. The four bedroom, three bathroom house has 20 foot ceilings, a dining room, and a California basement. It was built in 1926, just a couple years after the first fateful plans for a Downtown-Valley freeway were made. Freeway, schmreeway. Asking price is $1.095 million.
