The Art Of Amy: Art Show And Fundraiser

On Sunday January 26th 2020, the first ever public viewing of the art of Amy Rabins (1935-2019) will take place in a touching exhibition celebrating her life and legacy. Organized by Amy’s family, the event will also include an auction of a selection of her paintings to raise money for foundations that Amy supported during her life, such as Park Century School, the Brain Recovery Project and City of Hope. Rabins worked as an entertainment finance executive for many of the major Hollywood studios and fostered a love of painting in her spare time.

Amy lived and painted at her home in Studio City; an elegant mid-century modern designed by architect Louis Katzman. Every home has a story, and this particular residence comprises a story of an artist with a lifelong passion for creating. Deasy Penner Podley is honored to represent the sale of this unique home; listed by agents Margot Tempereau and Barry Gray.

Dashing 1920s Spanish-style in historic Pasadena district seeks $1.65M

By Bianca Barragan

This dashing Spanish Colonial Revival dates back to 1929 and was “one of the first houses” in what has become the historic district of Poppy Peak in Pasadena, according to the listing.

The two-story house is fronted by a private, gated garden with an outdoor fireplace. Inside, the dwelling holds four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, plus a large main kitchen, another kitchen downstairs, a butler’s pantry, a formal dining room, and an inviting sun room that’s currently in use as an office. Beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, elaborate wall sconces, casement windows, and hardwood floors appear throughout the space.

Sweeping views of the San Gabriel Mountains are available from most rooms in the house, which is located in a pocket of southern Pasadena that’s nestled between Eagle Rock and the Garvanza section of Highland Park.

The perks are more than skin deep: The house has undergone a full battery of upgrades, including seismic and foundation work, air condition and insulation, and updates to that secondary kitchen.

Last sold in 2007 for $1.2 million, the house at 1470 Poppy Peak Drive is now listed for $1.65 million.

13 cute starter homes for sale in LA

By Jenna Chandler

Los Angeles is growing increasingly unaffordable for homebuyers—especially first-time homebuyers—but unlike some other major U.S. cities (ahem, New York and San Francisco), it’s still possible to find a starter home that’s detached and comes with a front and back yards. Multifamily options abound, too, including charming units in walkable, transit-accessible neighborhoods.

Here are 13 great starter homes in and around LA, from Long Beach to Silver Lake to Culver City to North Hollywood. Most of the dwellings contain two bedrooms and all are asking $699,000 or less. (For comparison, the median home price in Los Angeles County in 2019 was $638,000).

Carriage house for $595K

The Miramonte Terrace is one of the prettiest condominium buildings in Koreatown. The complex’s two-story carriage house is special because it’s a standalone unit that “evokes the feeling of a single-family residence.” The two-bedroom, one-bathroom dwelling measures 766 square feet and features vintage tile, a breakfast nook with a built-in table and benches, and wood floors. HOA dues are $363.
