Biking Trek from Venice Beach to Redondo Beach!

Last month, I got on a bike for the first time since age 12. My colleague, Ivette Turon, and I were pumped up to bike from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach. Needless to say, the first mile was a bit shakey, as I clumsily dodged oncoming traffic made up of pedestrians, strollers, dogs and people on all sorts of contraptions, as you can imagine you’d find in Venice Beach. Anyway, we ended up getting lost in Marina Del Rey for over an hour, so we turned around and headed back to Santa Monica.

This past Saturday, we were DETERMINED to make it to Redondo Beach. Ivette Turon and I recruited Jeff Mindell this time to join our adventure. We all work at Keller Williams Realty Larchmont. We jumped on our bikes at Venice Beach this time, and kept our eyes peeled for the signs labeled “Marvin Braude Bike Path” that everyone told us that we should just follow.

The ocean and views were STUNNING. I couldn’t have asked for better weather for the ride. The fog cleared up around 9 am, we enjoyed a cool breeze, the sun was out…what a great way to get exercise with great company and feel like a kid again! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

If you haven’t made this trip before, I highly recommend it. Just remember to follow the Marvin Braude Bike Path when you’re making your way around the Marina Del Rey harbor. Enjoy, folks!

A Fairy Tale Home

I’ve never been much of a girly girl, which is exactly why I am so blown away by how much I loved this English Tudor mansion located in Windsor Square and listed for $4.495 million. It’s whimsical, yet very nicely done with sophisticated, modern taste. This 6 bedroom, 5 bath estate, boasting just over 6,000 SF, was owned by Bullock’s department store founder, John G. Bullock until 1962. It has recently been flipped into a beautiful masterpiece and expands over a lot of 25,262 SF. This is no ordinary flip!

It’s rare to find a flipped home with wall paper. See below for the tasteful wallpaper additions to the dining room and what would appear to be a lucky little princess’ bathroom.

This kitchen is a chef’s dream. A team of at least 10 could easily fit in here, which I’m sure was the plan. The only thing missing is your own deli counter against one wall. Hire the team over at Larchmont Wine & Cheese. You would be the owner of heaven in a house.

Being a swimmer growing up, I especially appreciate the beautiful pool, noting its irregular shape that adds yet another speck of creativity.

Call Tiffany Chin at RED to schedule an appointment to see this spectacular estate. You’ll be glad you called. 510.676.0036
