Flipped 1930s House in La Cañada-Flintridge Asking $669k

New, 8 comments

This La Cañada residence last came to market this past February with a rather bare-bones listing containing a single photo and a terse description informing potentially interested parties that the home had one bedroom, one and a half baths, an office, a study, and a garage, and that it was at that time uninhabitable and not connected to the sewer system. It also had a square footage of just 906 feet. Undaunted, some investor(s) snapped the place up for $447,000 and is now flipping it back. In its new listing, the 1939 bungalow is described as a two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath house measuring 1,154 square feet. It's also been endowed with a backstory and some choice brokerbabble, to wit: "A Zen house is the antidote to the stress of a busy life, creating a feeling of space and a tranquil sense of order. Built in 1939 by S. Paul W. Reps, after his travel in the Far East and study of Buddhism, this home resonates with a peaceful balance." The remodeled residence's features include hardwood floors, walls of glass, a gas fireplace, and a cavelike study with rock walls and original cabinetry. Sited on a 7,496-square-foot lot, it's now asking $669,000.
