Everywhere You Turn, There's a View... thanks to reflective surfaces

A benefit of the high gloss blue Ikea cabinets is that they brilliantly reflect my view... as shown in the above photo. Check out that palm tree! I love this picture. I love my kitchen. Everywhere you turn, there's a view!

Kitchen cabinets- Ikea (Not sure if they still sell the blue ones... I couldn't find them on their website)

40 people came through last Sunday. We had four separate private showings this week. Things are bubbling at this new and fabulous price.

What does $799,000 get you? An incredible house with million dollar views and $130,000 worth of upgrades for free. How's that? The current owners paid $799 and put $130 into my transformation. And it shows.

Turn the key, walk right in, put your feet up and you're home. It doesn't get much better than this.

FIRE, FLOWERS & COOKIES: An Open House Update

The buyers came (lots of them,) they saw...

I declare yesterday's Open House a success! First of all, I looked sensational. Second of all, more than 40 people came through. Of the 40 only three were Realtors, the rest were potential buyers. And several people expressed strong interest. This week will tell whether any of the 40 who came through yesterday will be my future owners.

For any readers out there who are interested, here are 3 things we did to make the house feel extra special:

We had a fire going. Yes, it was 68 degrees in L.A. yesterday, but no matter. It created a homey feeling and showed off my lovely fireplace (that is both wood burning and gas.) We had a gas fire going so as to avoid the need to continue stoking the fire.

There's nothing better than the aroma of freshly baked cookies permeating a house. Take it from this house. Nothing better. Which is why my owner baked a batch of Egg Nog Sugar Cookies an hour before the Open House resulting in:
A. Scrumptious cookies that went quickly &
B. The most delicious aroma known to house

Of course. I probably don't need to say it. But fresh flowers are a necessity. My owners picked up a lovely arrangement from the Atwater Village Farmer's Market in the morning and displayed them throughout the house.

My owners returned at the end of the Open House to find six people still here. Two were neighbors stopping by and four were potential buyers. They were pleased... especially to see how beautiful the view was at 4PM yesterday.

Today my owners told me that they don't want to be selfish and that's why they're selling the house. So someone else can enjoy this view for a while.

It's good to share.
