Eastside Property: Highland Park Craftsman on “Professors Row” sells for nearly $100k over asking

Sycamore Terrace became known as “Professors’ Row” after some teachers at Occidental College, which was once located in Highland Park before moving to Eagle Rock,  lived in some of the impressive, Craftsman-era homes that line the winding lane.  One of those Sycamore Terrace homes, a 114-year-old Craftsman hidden behind a small forest of yuccas and succulents,  just sold for $795,000 or $96,000 over the asking price, according to Redfin. The exterior of the two-story house retains a simple, period look – including wood siding and a large porch – but inside the current owners went for a contemporary style. Meanwhile, in the backyard, there’s a swimming pool that’s more suburban than Craftsman but inviting nonetheless. It’s all very nice but could an Occidental College professor afford Sycamore Terrace today?
