A Mount Washington house with a lofty perch and price

This nearly 6,000-square-foot, all-white home – inside and out – seems to float like a space ship on the 800 block of Mount Washington Drive. The home  – which boasts an indoor pool,  two-story high interiors and six bathrooms – is designed for living large.  But this expansive property does not come cheap, with an asking price of $1.677 million, according to Redfin. It’s a lot of house but is the price too steep for Mount Washington?

  1. I live in Mt. Washington and can emphatically tell you from taking many hikes around here, up and down the steep hills – that if you are the top of the crest, you are living large in a very special unsung neighorhood. On pristine-clean day-after-it-rains days, you can see all the way to the harbor or clear west to the ocean. I’m guessing prices are going to get like this in the Wash but only for the most primo, architecturally special properties. My little green cottage that has views of Doyers stadium fireworks ain’t EVA gonna get close to a mill.

  3. Why do I have a feeling they’ll be renting this out as a reality show location for years to come before they find anyone willing to buy…

  4. $1.67 Million”? That’s it? A two bedroom two bath in the heart of Highland Park goes for $300k-350k easy (in good condition). For a mere 5 times the price I can have sweeping views of LA, 6 baths and and indoor swimming pool? It’s clear the bottom bracket of the economic ladder is getting screwed. Entry level houses in LA cost 1/5 of this mansion.

  5. I happened to be walking on some dirt trails over in Mt. Wash this weekend and came around the corner and looked up and saw that house. I took a picture too because it was so long and mammoth compared to the other houses. It looked like a hotel!

    Price should be a lot higher!

  6. I live on the Westside and my sister lives on the “Wash”. I was visiting on Sunday and we walked past this place. I am a very picky person and noticed the lack of attention to detail in the construction. Round corners from a few hundred feet away are slight flat and unsymetircal. The surrounding fence is faded red paint and unkept. The driveway an retaining wall style to not match the modern design of the house. I have not seen the inside, but if the quality of the construction is as bad as the outside, the price is for the land, not the house. The view is AWESOME!

    Sorry to po-po the house!

  7. I’m sorry, good price or bad, that is one UGLY house inside and out! Talk about an eye soar in an otherwise lovely neighborhood.
