Why do people love Whittier Real Estate?
Living in Whittier is highly desirable for many reasons. You can be skiing in Big Bear in an hour, surfing in Huntington Beach in 30 minutes, golfing in Palm Springs in 1.50 hours, or dropping off the kids at Knotts Berry Farm in 10 minutes.
If your into 'antiquing' you don't have to go anywhere. Whittier has one of the best spots for antiques and vintage finds in the state. It's called "King Richards Antique Vintage Center" on Whittier Blvd. Its a long time landmark of Whittier and everyone in Whittier can tell you all about it.
Decorators come from very far distance to shop for antiques in Whittier and of course new homeowners in Whittier, La Habra, and La Mirada love the vintage shopping due to all the vintage real estate that can be had in the Whittier area.
Affordable flat roofed, single story vintage homes can be found in Whittier and the surrounding areas and there are some pockets of very high end homes, like Friendly Hills, that look like they belong on the cover of Architectural Digest. Floor to ceiling glass walls, teak ceilings, cement walls, and high end finishes are common in newly remodeled Whittier real estate.
I recently showed a beautiful modern home at 14877 Janine Dr in Whittier that was a real show stopper especially if you like modern homes. It was new construction with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, over 3000 square feet, concrete floors, Viking appliances and even the garage was beautiful. Originally listed for $1,25,000 but closed at $1,150,000 a win-win for both buyer and seller.
On the other hand, I also recently showed another big custom home in the Mar Vista Heights area that was just short of 4000 square feet. We were at the property at dusk and the views consisted of Catalina Island, San Pedro, Orange County and LA. Very private and quiet as it was sitting at the top of the hill and on a cul-da-sac. Clearly the views were a big selling point but the home had all the bells and whistles any buyer would appreciate. Massive kitchen, three car garage, high end custom wood cabinets, and new wood floors. This home was also listed at $1,250,000 but sold for $1,100,000.
Long story short, you get a lot of Whittier real estate for $1,000,000.00 no matter what style home you like.
