Per the Listing: "Nestled on a cul-de-sac street of one of the most sought after neighborhoods of Verdugo Woodlands, this property stayed in the same family since it was designed and built by the owner architect. It was one of the first built homes in the area and the current owners, who inherited the property from their parents, witnessed the magical transformation of the surrounding hillsides into this beautiful neighborhood. The tri-level story-book dwelling offers formal entry & den on the lower level, 1BR+1BA on the middle level, and living room, kitchen w/ breakfast nook, 2BR+1BA on the top level. The list price also includes the 3 adjacent parcels with APN#s 5654-030-022, 018 & 19 / combined lot size approx. 18,500 SF. Other unique characteristics include custom handmade closets, kitchen cabinets, a workshop heaven equipped with all kinds of tools ready for Do it Yourself projects, a laundry/utility room, a wine cellar/storage, hidden passages and many other awe-inspiring amenities."
It's evident from the listing photos that this property could stand some cosmetic improvements, if not more. Even so, $699,000 for a home on nearly half an acre—one with hidden passages, no less—strikes us as suspiciously, bidding-war incitingly low. We'll check back after the smoke has cleared.
