When this Baldwin Hills house went up for sale last July, the listing copy told potential homebuyers to "bring your tool belt and see all the potential and value this home has to offer!!" The new owners certainly saw an opportunity here. The remodeled, 1,400-square-foot house now boasts solid hardwood floors throughout, a working marble fireplace, and a redone kitchen with quartz counters, plus three roomy bedrooms. One of those, the master suite, has been given the royal treatment—large soaking tub, rain showerhead, and imported marble. (The other bathroom in the house also has a soaking tub.)
The backyard manages to comfortably accommodate a replastered and refinished "Huge Olympic Sized Pool," open grass, and an herb garden; the front yard's decked out in drought-tolerant plants and outfitted with drop irrigation. In all, public records show the property measures just shy of 8,800 square feet. Last sold for $470,000 in July of this year, the whole package is now listed at $828,000.
