Do you follow CandysDirt on Instagram? It’s another great way to get in touch with us, to see what we’re featuring on the site, and to show us what you’re up to — which is exactly what Kate Walters with Allie Beth Allman & Associates did last week when she pitched us this gorgeous Lakewood hip pocket.
What’s a hip pocket listing? It’s a home that’s for sale, but isn’t listed in the MLS, nor will you find it online on the likes of Zillow, Redfin, etc. Sellers sometimes go this route to protect their privacy, or to test the waters of the market, or even just in the hopes of generating more interest in the home in a market that might be getting a bit saturated.
But Walters is planning on someone falling in love with this home — so she’s even arranged for a champagne sip-and-see on Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
But just in case drinking champagne on a Tuesday afternoon isn’t in the cards for you, we got Walters to share a bit about her hip pocket, including photos and a video. Want to see? Let’s jump.
Located at 6922 Westlake Ave., this completely remodeled and expanded Tudor has managed to combine the character and charm Lakewood buyers typically want with tons of updates.
And, bonus, it also has guest quarters that could be a great nanny space, guest space, or even Airbnb moneymaker.
“The main home features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, 3,676 square feet, oversized study, upstairs playroom with built-ins, open kitchen-den, great master suite, and light and bright finish out,” Walters said. “There is also a fabulous guest quarters with 578 square feet, kitchen, full bath, separate bedroom, and living area.”
The home is priced at $1,299,000.
