There are 50 active listings in La Canada this week. On caravan yesterday it was very black and white: low end and high end, but nothing in the middle.
2020 Manistee is in Sagebrush. Lovely pool home, yet very close to hillside covered with parched scrub. In the searing heat it looked slightly menacing. 1216 Lanterman is a cute 2 bedroom on one of my favorite streets above Descanso. It was last purchased off-market in 2014 for $985,000 (neighbor to neighbor). Now for the big ones: 2011 Hall Canyon is a gorgeous custom home in a quiet setting behind Palm Crest Elementary. 5147 Princess Anne has a large finished basement with a movie theater, additional family room and guest suite. No pool. 1937 Orchard was last on in 2013 for $2,950,000. It did not sell. Many renovations later (according to the agent), it is now on again for substantially more. The home is charming with lots of original details and has a cute guest house over the garage. 3996 Chevy Chas sold early last year at $4,305,000. It is on again adding to the glut in the over $3,000,000 category in LCF that takes up 1/3 of our inventory. Fingers crossed for more coming on in the under $2,000,000 category. Very slow start to our fall season.
