After we sold their urban loft, our clients, the Buyers of this property were ready for a home with an outdoor setting. Both talented designers, they wanted a fixer with character and good bones. They knew the minute they walked in this was the house for them, full of original architectural details, indoor outdoor poolside living, it was close to the hiking trails they enjoy daily, and it could be restored within their budget! We represented them in a multiple offer situation and got them the house. The restoration is almost complete and is stunning. Our client got the real estate / renovation bug, and with her good taste and love of real estate, she now has joined the erbe + blackham team!
