    I mean... whoa. That's all I've really got to say. Just whoa. Read on and you'll see exactly what I mean by whoa.


    If I had to rank the view from every house in Los Angeles, this would be in the Top 5, hands down. This place is bold yet sophisticated. You've got floor to ceiling Fleetwood windows that illustrate the most spectacular city to ocean views.

    Also, it's located on one of the most famous streets in the 'Bird Streets': Blue Jay Way.

    The architecture here is pure Art, it's just an extraordinary interpretation true of California living (indoor/outdoor).

    There are more photos coming soon to stay tuned.


    As always, feel free to answer, comment, ask questions or just ramble.

    Stay awesome L.A.

    Well golly... isn't this just the swellest? Swollest? Most swole? That went from quaint to super-bro really fast. One might say that escalated quickly. And that one would be Ron Burgundy. Anyhood, hop along and let's check out this quaint, nice sized home in Silver Lake overlooking downtown L.A. and the Hollywood sign.

    You ever been to Nantucket? Ever seen the architectural style in Nantucket? No? Well tough toenails tootsie, you're just going to have to take my word for it then. Check it out sometime if you get the chance. It's quite nice. This place is definitely Nantucket meets Silver Lake. Truly one a kind.

    The whole home has authentic original character with great attention to details throughout, beautiful hardwood floors, high ceilings. The giant living room has a wall of original windows, fireplace, and a private terrace with pretty snazzy views to the west.

    You also get a bonus sun room, direct access from the garage, simple low maintenance garden, all systems and appliances updated, (except for the vintage stove which goes perfectly in the vintage birch wooden kitchen).

    Trust me, you've got to see this one. Have we ever steered you wrong here at the Junction? Didn't think so.

  • Fo Chislehurst My Nizzle - PART 3!

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Los Feliz, Home Selling in Los Feliz, In My Neighborhood in Los Feliz  |  December 11, 2012 2:49 PM  |  1,983 views  |  No comments

    Oh yeah... this little Junction operation has gotten so successful that we can fully justify doing a trilogy of posts, almost 6 months removed from each other! Yes we've grown up, and Fo Chislehurst My Nizzle - Part 2, is a few months old now. Time to revisit that ol' street we love so much, the one that reminds of Snoop Do, double, Jizzle. Oh wait, that's Snoop Lion now. Gag.

    Anyways, along with all that schtuff, the street does have some pretty markedly kick ass houses. Such as this one! Let's do this.


    Today we explore this serene and enchanting Spanish villa circa 1929 located on one of Los Feliz' best street - and one that we are particularly fond of by quality and by name.


    This little palace has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a gorgeous courtyard entry, city views, original Malibu tile, wood floors, stained glass and iron details.


    The living room has beamed ceilings, French doors to patios and the outside is rocking one super sweet waterfall spa. You've also got your standard estate Media/screening room with original bar. May I make a classy suggestion? Watch Party Monster (why Macauley Culkin why!) after 3 shots of Absinthe. And not that new fake American stuff, I mean the French Green Fairy stuff with wormwood. Don't say I never did anything for you.


    Oh yeah, and you've got a library/study and terraced grounds with gazebo, as well as a video entry system with security camera surveillance. So you're swagging, relaxing, and safe? Count me in. Oh wait, I don't exactly have $2.5mil on hand. Let me call my guy in Switzerland and move a few accounts around...


    As always, feel free to answer, comment, ask questions or just ramble.

    Stay awesome L.A.

  • The Simple Life - Hollywood (Not the awful show)

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Hollywood Hills, Home Selling in Hollywood Hills, In My Neighborhood in Hollywood Hills  |  December 11, 2012 2:43 PM  |  656 views  |  No comments

    This is definitely a rare type of joint to come on the market in this area. We're used to swag pads, mansions (and unfortunately some McMansions) in the Hollywood Hills area but not today. Come along folks as we check out this contemporary, yet comparatively affordable, masterpiece in da Hills.


    This stunning contemporary style home has completely unobstructed downtown, city and canyon views that are just drop dead dope. The home sits above that Sunset Strip we all know and love, right off Sunset Plaza Dr. You can enjoy waking to the sun rising over downtown with a view of the show from every room.


    Are you a fan of privacy? Me too. I don't like people all up in my grill all the time. Well lucky you, this place is located on a quiet, sought-after cul-de-sac street, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, additional office space, hardwood floors throughout, remodeled bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, custom fitted closets, decks with access from all rooms, a stunning gourmet kitchen with a large island, and a robot that makes you breakfast.

    I only made one of those things up.


    I guess the moral of the story is that this house has been done, modeled, designed, and taken care of with the utmost care and attention to detail.


    And the coup de gras of it all? Yep, check that out. Can you imagine chillin on that patio with a bottle of wine and a loved one, overlooking the city of angels? Ah real estate makes me feel poetic. Enjoy folks!

  • Innovative Living in Silver Lake

    A little something different today folks. Every once in a while here at the Junction, we show you some "future living" joints. Today, we come to you from our very own backyard Silver Lake. Hop along and see how we'll all be dwelling in 50 years.


    Heyday's Newest Development located two blocks away from Silver Lake Reservoir and steps away from Ivanhoe Elementary. These Six brand new homes finally provide an opportunity for contemporary home-ownership in Silver Lake.


    Unlike many homes which claim to be 'green', these homes are certified by the highest environmental rating: LEED for Homes. The unique site layout offers privacy from the street and sweeping views to the Griffith Observatory.


    Each three story home is situated on its own property and has ample outdoor space provided by a large roof decks. Upon entering the home the open split level floor plan and custom millwork clearly establish that these homes offer a level of detail unlike any other new home in the area.


    Equipped with everything from built in speakers to Caesarstone countertops, the finishes are second to none. Heyday's last development, 15 homes in Eagle Rock, sold out in less than a month so move quickly on this rare opportunity.

  • Exclusive Pocket Listing in Hollywood - Get It First Here

    Posted Under: Home Buying in West Hollywood, Home Selling in West Hollywood, In My Neighborhood in West Hollywood  |  March 15, 2012 11:30 AM  |  1,125 views  |  No comments

    Shhh... L.A. Junction is officially covering a not-yet-on-the-market pocket listing. I was there at an exclusive house showing today and it is just unbelievably nice. It's the newest project from the Eastside L.A. revered Mod-Op Design. Yes yes... you're welcome readers.


    This is a simply stunning transformation of a Spanish architectural style home centrally located in the Beverly Grove neighborhood just minutes and easy walking distance to some of the best restaurants, nightlife and shopping in L.A.


    Once you get inside you see an eclectic blending of impressive original details with modern updates, this thoughtful renovation is sure to impress even the pickiest of buyer. You've got an old school wooden dolly converted into a living room glass table, a 1920's camera tripod converted into a lamp; really just some of the most unique style and architecture you've ever seen.


    You can relax and entertain in the spacious living room with a gorgeous open beamed vaulted ceiling and wood-burning fireplace. And the kitchen is brand spankin' new featuring top of the line Viking appliances and custom cabinets.


    Three spacious bedrooms offer numerous possibilities including room for home office and guest space. Both bathrooms feature lovely Granada floor tile while the master bathroom has a claw foot bathtub and double sink vanity with Caesarstone counter top. Every single feature and renovation is tasteful, quality, and unique. Really good stuff here.


    An enclosed backyard is the perfect spot to relax in the sun. Fully hedged and gated front yard along with a video intercom system gives a great sense of privacy. All this plus brand new central AC/Heat, upgraded electrical and plumbing, a 2-car garage and new oak hardwood floors.


    The place was built in 1927 with only two prior owners. This really is a treasure to be appreciated and loved by a lucky new buyer.

    Hope you all enjoyed this L.A Junction exclusive!
