Eastside Property: What does a million-dollar Highland Park house look like? Come take a peek

HIGHLAND PARK —  One of the first members of Highland Park’s million-dollar home club is this three-bedroom, two-bath home  that officially changed hands last week for $1 million, according to Redfin.   Located on the northern edge of Highland Park near Eagle Rock, the home on Coringa Drive received six offers and sold at more than $121,000 over its asking price.  “We were …. totally blown away at the price it brought in,” said real estate agent Deirdre Salomone.

The residents of the home, perched on a hill over the Occidental College playing fields, enjoy city and mountain views but the kitchen was also a major draw. ” The owner was a gourmand and designed the kitchen, which opened to two living spaces and the dining room,” said Salomone of Keller Williams.

The home’s $1 million-dollar selling price is more than double the $418,000 median sales price for the 90042 Zip Code, according to Redfin.   It’s the Zip Code’s second million-dollar home sale in the past year, with a house on Cresthaven Drive selling for $1.150 million last May.

  1. very nice looking home..

  2. I totally agree1!! Beautiful!

  3. I don’t think it’s very diplomatic for the agent to say she was “totally blown away” by the price it brought in. It implies that the buyer overpaid.

  4. Looks like a beautiful property!

  5. I think the whole family was blown away and I hope the new owners enjoy their new home.

  6. a wide angle lens can make anything look larger than it is. the price of single family homes is insane right now.

  7. I guess the author doesn’t know what a “gourmand” is. LOL Oh my. Didn’t they research that before describing the former owner as a “gourmand”??? I think you meant to say “gourmet,” or “epicure” would have been better.

    A “gourmand” is a person who is basically a gluttonous pig when it comes to food and drinking.

  8. It’s overpriced and the “upgrades” are generic looking. That bathroom and kitchen could just as easily be inside a loft in downtown LA. What a pity that the upgrades didn’t honor the original architectural design.

    • Overpriced according to you. Which means what exactly? Nothing. It’s a free market and the market decides what it’s worth. Not X-man on his computer in his apartment seething with jealousy.

      It was built in 1926. should they have an ice box for a refrigerator?

  9. A million dollar home in highland park looks like gentrification is here to stay.
