This Glassell Park house was very robin's egg blue when it sold for $475,000 in June--and the old listing had no interior pictures, so we can only assume it was a real wreck. But the three-bedroom, two-bathroom Spanish is back, all prettied up, a much more reasonable shade, restored, and with all the bells and whistles you'd expect in a Northeast LA flip. There are "hardwood floors, stenciled beam ceilings, formal dining room with vintage lighting," and a perfectly fine kitchen with those familiar gray stone counters--the listing calls it a "chef's kitchen," which makes us wonder what isn't a chef's kitchen these days. One without a stove? The 1,561-square-foot house has a nice grassy little yard out back, and is asking $769,000. If that sounds like a lot, rest assured that it's "one of the finest Spanish homes in the area," according to the listing.
