Oct 26 2017 26743 1 Homes On Tour Worth Talking About

Well, the market appears to be doing its standard Fall Slowdown.  Fewer homes are coming on the market, but sales remain strong.  The end result is about a 15% drop in the total inventory.  And interesting to note even with a slower market 20% of the homes have been on the market for a week or less... and another 20% have been on the market for over 90 days.  So, it's STILL A SELLERS MARKET.


This week's Tour had 2 homes that stood out ... for very different reasons.


The first is a classic 1916 custom 2 story with gorgeous wood detailing, classic floor plan and many nicely done updates.  Originally built for Judge Bray this home sits on a wonderful knoll overlooking the Carquinez Straits and the lights across the water. Priced at $1,250,000 with approximately 3300 sf on an 11,000 sf lot the home is located at 1304 Highland Ave in picturesque Martinez... within walking distance to the restaurants downtown as well as the train depot (yes it's right downtown) and close to the waterfront as well.  Image titleFor anyone thinking they want the charm of Berkeley and the unique appeal of vintage homes Martinez in general and this home in particular should be on your list to check out.


The other home worth noting this week is also a classic, but this one is a mid-century modern built by Joseph Eichler.  Located at     Image title 413 Pazzi Rd in Walnut Creek, within walking distance of the Boundary Oaks Golf Course.  This 2300+ sf home (not including the large atrium with a fully retractable roof)  is presently priced at $1,249,000.  The home is in very liveable, but it is essentially in original condition.  This plan, fully updated and remodeled sold for over $1,500,000 just recently.


Your choice this week ... old world charm and detailing or the ultimate in mid-century modern California style.  If you have any questions about either or these, or you'd like to check them out in person, let me know... Steve@CurtisRealtyGroup.com
