Our Inwood Home of the Week at 3837 Fairfax Avenue is a Mockingbird Park midcentury modern. When I say it’s all that and more, you know it’s special, because I don’t say that a lot. We all know I’m picky. But, when I saw this online, it was one of those moments when I looked at the lead photo and thought, “Hmmm … there is something here, it’s very understated but look at those windows, I better open this up.”

And Boom! I was absolutely floored. You simply do not see homes like this come along very often. (more…)

On a day-to-day basis, there are two things that make me happy: a glass of good prosecco and Realtors that are genuinely jazzed about their listings. And I know when I choose a property represented by David Griffin & Company agent Sam Saladino, I will always get the latter. And there’s plenty to be excited about with his new listing at 5304 Livingston in West Highland Park, making it a shoo-in for this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans

“From the moment you step onto the sidewalk, the house exterior and landscape welcomes you in a way reminiscent of post-World War II optimism, and the beginnings of the sophisticated suburban lifestyle,” Saladino said. “Classic brick, shutters, huge picture windows, and shake shingles combined for a restrained, cultivated exterior devoid of tension. Everything is ordered, balanced, in its place.”

Of course, once inside, you start to notice that there’s a level of taste and adventure that is irresistible!
