Frankly, we don’t know how they do it. Heading into their 40th year, the organizers of the Lakewood Home Tour always find proud homeowners willing to share their gorgeous and often architecturally significant houses with the public. In doing so they have raised millions of dollars since 1976, all benefitting local schools. This year, six homes ranging from brand new builds to historic architectural icons are on the annual tour that takes place this weekend. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at one of those icons, 3201 Wendover.

Stay tuned: We’ll be giving away two pairs of tickets to this year’s Lakewood Home Festival Tour later this week!



I’ve been telling you how hard it is to find homes in the $400,000 to $599,000 price range that are not pending, active, or under contract, and that knock my socks off. Well, not only are my socks off, but I’m running barefoot through the grass right for this charming Lakewood cottage at 6706 Vada, and you should be too because — mark my words — Andrea Pedigo at Dave Perry Miller Real Estate will be writing a contract on it by next week in this crazy-hot market. At $499,000 it just won’t last, so sprint on over and snag it this weekend before someone else does. (more…)
