in Real Estate by Leave a comment

It was fifty years ago when two of the greatest actresses in Hollywood lived in this home. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford had long successful acting careers. 180 South McCadden Place in Hollywood, the home was reportedly “respectable,” rather than “luxurious,” although it has Judy’s very first swimming pool.


Judy Garland’s Childhood Home Is for Sale—and It’s Not in Kansas

There’s no place like Judy Garland‘s childhood home, which, surprisingly enough, is located in Lancaster, CA, a good hour-and-a-half drive northeast of Los Angeles. Although the Antelope Valley town is a bit remote, and not one of the Golden State’s more glamorous locales, you just can’t brush the stardust off… Read more at


Although Garland’s childhood home, built in 1915, has been expanded and remodeled, some of the original features it had when she lived there still exist. You can gaze out the same windows, brush against the same moldings, and dance across some of the same floors.

The Perks of Going For a Custom Home Design

in custom homes by Leave a comment

Choosing custom home style designs may be the most labor intensive design option for future homeowners. However, it is also the most creatively fulfilling option as well.

Putting a personal stamp on your home is a wonderful experience. And for those who’ve tried it, they can’t imagine designing a house any other way.

Custom Home Design

However it takes a certain personality to want to build and design a house from the ground up. Often, these are homeowners who are very particular about what they want for their home. Alternatively, a homeowner may not have a particular vision in mind, but he will want to have some form of input into every detail of his future home. Naturally, homeowners who opt to design their home this way should be prepared to make multiple decision on every facet of the house. The good news is a custom home will be able to accommodate personal preferences on the details that will not be so easily possible with a standard home design.

Having custom home style designs is not necessarily expensive. This is a misconception that has been proven wrong by the tiny home movement that has been gaining traction in the recent years. It is true that a custom home can be costly, especially if the design a homeowner wants is grand. However, for people who have simpler tastes it can be a more economical option. Architects are able to design according to a client’s budget by making the construction less complicated and maximizing building materials.

The main thing to for clients to keep in mind when opting for custom home style designs is to have a vision of the type of home they want. It would be best if they are able to be extremely clear about what they want. But if that isn’t possible, at the minimum having a clear general idea for the architect to work with is helpful in setting the final design towards the right direction. If a client has no idea what they want, an option is for them to look through the architect’s previous designs for inspiration. From there, they may be able to pull design details that appeal to them and eliminate those that do not.

It goes without saying that finding the right architect for the client’s custom home style designs vision is very important. Most architects are able to do a variety of home designs, but their work will often reveal a personal predilection. Often, this personal preference is the architect’s best design ability. Therefore, it is important for a client to do his research on his chosen architect. For example, if a client wants a modern home design it would not be ideal to hire an architect who specializes in traditional home styles and design.

I Just Completed Another Custom Built Luxury Home in Los Angeles

I’m Celebrating on the L.A. Miracle Mile

New Luxury Home Listing for Sale 405 N. Kilkea Los AngelesMy company Diditan Luxury Home Builders has just completed this beautiful modern real estate development this week after many months of hard work and effort my excellent crew put in to help make this custom built home a reality. This contemporary luxury mansion is in a thriving located at 405 N. Kilkea Drive in the heart of the “Miracle Mile” near the Beverly Center in Los Angeles.  There are so many reasons you might want to own a luxury property like this one, but, one thing for sure is that it will stand out as an immediate contender the instant you set eyes on it.

Hollywood Style

Adorned by its many Art Deco theaters that once entertained audiences with the likes of Rudolph Valentino and Greta Garbo, Miracle Mile is one of the most desirable Mid-Wilshire areas to own a home. Set aside its low crime rate and easy access to other popular neighborhoods you are left with the three primary reasons why smart investors are buying luxury homes in this area: housing market trends, amenities, and love.

Find Love

According to Trulia, 73% of Miracle Mile residents are single, 70% are college educated, and the median age is 36. If you are looking for your soul mate then Miracle Mile is an ideal place to setup base if your criteria partially includes educated 30-something urbanites. With its droves of athletic clubs, trendy bars, cafes, and museums you could be living smack in the center of an area filled with interesting people that match your lifestyle.

Read more about this listing on my company website here:

The interior offers neutral hardwoods throughout, and a bright open floor plan that seamlessly blends the kitchen with the main living area. Natural light enters the home from multiple windows at varying heights, giving it the energy of a Sun Palace. A floating staircase hints a mid-century modern design that, set amidst the natural tones and architectural styling, conjures Danish modernism.


Eat, Shop, Ingest

Miracle Mile is a gateway to discovery. Within a short stroll’s walk you can visit Little Ethiopia off Fairfax and eat with your hands without having to worry about disapproving glances from your wife. Just east is Koreatown where you can spend a decade exploring its various culinary opportunities.

If you want access to convenient shopping Beverly Hills and Melrose are less than 5 minutes away by car, even in LA traffic. Miracle Mile is most famously known for its Museum Row; locals can stroll down to LACMA and ingest Edgar Degas’ contributions to Impressionism, or take the kids to the La Brea Tar Pits and learn about our prehistoric past.

The Petersen Automotive Museum is a great place to appreciate beauty and power, as they have some of the rarest mint cars in the world like the 1954 Mercedes W196. When you invest in a Miracle Mile home, you also buy endless opportunities to entertain even the broadest interest ranges.

Property Values Keep Going Up

There is a reason why developers keep building investment properties and custom homes in Miracle Mile. According to Trulia the average home sales price in this hot spot to call home soared from $600K to $1.123,500 in the span of only a few years with a price per square foot that increased by 5% in the last year alone! A smart buyer shouldn’t limit his criteria for buying a home down to the property specs alone but also look at his new home as an investment. Checkout the Zillow specs here.

Schedule a showing. Envision. Entertain ideas. If you are handed the keys, take joy in those next steps to add your own signature to the utopia of you.
