618 N. Brookside Home of the Week

I have driven down this street, Brookside, off LaVista, so many times on my way to Hollywood Heights/Santa Monica where my daughter now lives. Every time I marvel at how pretty Brookside is, and how the homes on one side all back up to the Lakewood Country Club. What a perfect place to live — walking distance to Lakewood Shopping Center, Whole Foods, and of course a whole country club golf course in your back-yard.

Then, eureka, a month ago, I see this gorgeous, neat as a pin and spiffy Tudor revival that has a for sale sign in front on the country club side! It is listed by John and Debbie Brosius, Allie Beth Allman & Associates, Debbie being John’s wife, and John being the super star agent who brought a buyer to my home years ago. Then I look this house up and — quick someone hide my checkbook!

618 Brookside is now under one million dollars!

Brookside DenBuilt in 1928,  the 3486 square foot home is perched on a bit of a hill, not a climb, enough to poise it majestically. Landscaping is luscious and mature on a third-acre lot(.38) and the home has been beautifully updated inside with classical touches: the walls and ceilings are still thickly textured plaster, and yes, those are original stained glass windows. There are beautiful moldings, arched windows, nooks, crannies, hardwoods, leaded glass doors, slate floors, an original  Potter Ironworks stair rail, and a rookwood pottery fireplace. You get four bedrooms, three and a half baths, formals, , secluded master with sitting room, spa bath with bidet, sunroom, an outdoor pergola with a beautiful grill built into a round, stone island structure, a roman swimming pool and detached garage with 600 square feet of guest quarters over.

John and Debbie have it listed for $985,000. Was listed a year ago for $975,000, you know, different market. Then it went back on July 5 at $1,025,000. I’d say we are getting closer to perfection… and my checkbook…  and a loan from Inwood Mortgage right now!618 Brookside grill 618 Brookside guest house618 N. Brookside Backyard 618 N.
