A handful of pricey spec mansions and historic homes hit the market in Los Angeles County this past week.
The top five residential sales totaled $38.5 million, each between $7 million and $9.5 million. The total comes amid L.A.’s continued luxury market slowdown. The five include two new construction homes — one in the Bird Streets and another in Bel Air.
The information was compiled from the Multiple Listings Service and Redfin, from Oct. 8-14.
128 N. Glenroy Avenue | Bel Air | $9.5M
This “modern farmhouse” spans 8,200 square feet on a half-acre lot tucked off Sunset Boulevard near UCLA. The five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom home is centered around a family room with retractable doors leading out to a trellis-covered terrace in the backyard. Aram Afshar and Steve Frankel with Coldwell Banker had the listing. The buyer was represented by Sharona Alperin with Sotheby’s International Realty.
540 S. Rossmore Avenue | Hancock Park | $7.5M
This 1924-built Tudor-style five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home was recently renovated with custom cabinetry, new wood floors, smart home tech, and other upgrades. The main house spans about 7,100 square feet. There’s also a 960-square-foot guest house and a gym and studio space totaling about 1,100 square feet on nearly an acre of property. Compass’ Aaron Kirman had the listing and Markus Canter with Berkshire Hathaway repped the buyer.
541 Stassi Lane | Santa Monica | $7.4M
This newly built five-bedroom, six-bathroom home was designed by noted Bay Area architect Ray Kappe. The modernist home sits on a hillside on Santa Monica’s northwest border with Pacific Palisades. Two second-story bedrooms and the backyard wood deck and pool look toward the northwest. Altogether, the home spans about 5,400 square feet. Todd Baker with Coldwell Banker represented both the buyer and seller in the deal.
1200 Linda Flora Drive | Bel Air | $7.1M
This 6,000-square-foot home has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, as well as amenities that include a wine cellar, screening room, and a zero-edge swimming pool. The three-story home sits on the ridgetop that Linda Flora Drive follows and has a rooftop deck to maximize views of the city and the Pacific Ocean. It’s next to at least two homes destroyed in the 2017 Skirball Fire. Sally Forster Jones represented Compass’ buyer and seller. Her colleague Kevin Pane had the listing with her.
1479 Blue Jay Way | Bird Streets | $7M
This five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home is a blast from L.A.’s swanky past. The single-story home was built in 1964 in the era’s trademark Hollywood Regency style. Despite its seemingly well-kept condition, the 6,200-square-foot home was advertised as a redevelopment opportunity.
