One of Highland Park’s tiniest streets – a barely block-long lane called Pickwick – is home to some of the neighborhood’s priciest real estate. A four-bedroom, Spanish-style Pickwick Street home on 1.6-acres sold in 2009 for $820,000, according to Redfin. It is the only single-family home in the 90042 Zip Code to have sold for more than $800,000 in the past three years, said Redfin. But now another Pickwick Street home owner is seeking to break that price barrier with an asking price of $899,000.
Unlike the $820,000 home, which was built in 1939, the newly listed home at 6557 Pickwick was built in 2008 and includes about 3,000-square feet of space spread over three floors, with a limestone fireplace, “open-loft style” living area and “Pasadena-adjacent” location listed among the selling points. Is this enough to sell a Highland Park home for nearly $900,000?
