Highland Park modern

Rogers Healy and Associates always has the best hip pocket properties for us, and this 6,356-square-foot contemporary home at 3504 Lexington Avenue in Highland Park not listed in MLS is no exception. A dining room wall of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors gives you a peek inside the beautiful contemporary architecture of this home, listed by Rogers Healy for $4,800,000.

“3504 Lexington is the modern unicorn,” Healy says. “Pristine attention to detail coupled with a comfortable layout ideal for entertaining, all on a massive Highland Park lot. I love the high ceilings, the open layout, the outdoor entertaining options, and the downstairs master. We’re looking forward to finding the modern fan, ready to entertain.”

Light hardwood and limestone floors contrast the cherry millwork found throughout this four-bedroom, six-bath, two-story estate. As you walk in, the well-appointed dining room to your left has additional outdoor living or dining space courtesy of three sets of glass doors that open onto a slim, covered porch. To the right, there’s a fireplace in the study that’s enclosed with double privacy glass doors with floor-to-ceiling windows and a patio door that allow soft, shaded natural light to enter. Gorgeous!

James Bohan-Pitt and Clay Stapp launched HipPocket, an app that connected Realtors to off-MLS listings, in 2015. The company will close at the end of this month.

We got tipped off by a reader that HipPocket, the tech start-up brought to the market by pioneering broker Clay Stapp and his business partner, James Bohan-Pitt, will soon close. In a message to users and clients of the site, Stapp and Bohan-Pitt said that the company, which was launched give agents and brokers a different platform to market and ask for properties in high-demand markets.

“Unfortunately we will be closing HipPocket officially on August 31st 2017,” Stapp and Bohan-Pitt said in the message to users. “Even though the evolution of HipPocket into an intelligent collaboration platform was sound, we have been unable to secure new financing to build HipPocket 2.0 and our brokerage subscriptions have not reached a level that we can maintain the business long term.”

The platform, which was available in the Apple iTunes store, came on the market with a bang in May of 2015. Users that have any questions or concerns about the closure of the company have been asked to contact support@hippocket.com.

Maribeth Peters of Allie Beth Allman & Associates sent in this week’s Friday Five Hundred, a Hip Pocket listing in Greenway Crest.

“It is so hard to find a pretty two-story traditional home in Area 25 and at a reasonable price under $600,000 with an amazing Master Suite,” Peters said. If you know someone who’s on the lookout for just such a home, you better hurry because this home could hit MLS this weekend.

The house, which is a 3/3 with four living areas, clocks in at 3,249 square feet. The master suite, which has its own living area, is a whopping 500 square feet. That’s about the size of my first apartment in Uptown!

The kitchen doesn’t disappoint, with cool curvy counters and high-end everything. I can imagine the most impressive home chefs feeling comfortable in this gorgeous gourmet kitchen. And the apron sink? I’m in love!

Right now the price is $589,900 but with a little haggling, who knows what you can get this gem of a house for!
