Modern Open Concept Kitchen

The use of the open concept kitchen has been on the rise in the past few decades. The kitchen is no longer an isolated room hidden away in ones home, but rather a social place where homeowners spend a significant amount of their time. Jase Frederick, ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) Illinois' director of communications, says that homeowners "are looking for spaces that maximize their ability to gather and relax with friends and family.” And where better to gather with ones family and friends than in one of the following homes designed with an open concept kitchen in mind.

Happy New Year

Definitely a bit late on this, but since today is officially when all are back to work thought it was fitting to post this, and wish everyone a Happy New Year!  I have high hopes that this is going to be an amazing year.  Cheers.

Here's to a great 2014! 



2 Houses on a Lot in Prime West Hollywood

I showed this property to a buyer the other day, who unfortunately is passing on it, but I certainly was impressed.  It is a legal duplex, but has two separate homes with two separate addresses in an absolute A+ location.  From here you can walk to Urth Cafe, trendy shopping and restaurants on Melrose, Beverly, & Robertson.  On top of it being two houses, the styles from the outside couldn't be more of a contrast; one is a modern architectural built from the ground up in 2006, while the other is a small loft like bungalow remodeled in 2006.  The modern "main house" contains two bedrooms and two and a half baths with a wide open floorplan and walls of glass leading out to a lush and private garden enclosed to the outside world by hedges.  The fire pit, seating areas, and the hot tub make the outside a nice retreat from city life while being in the heart of it.  The other property has it's own yard and is a loft like one bedroom home with polished concrete flooring.  Not many places can you find two houses on a lot, especially not ones of such contrast as these two, in this dynamic and highly desirable location.

This property could also be a great investment property, as it currently leases for very high amounts.  Many options on this one...
