4839 Gould Avenue, La Canada Flintridge

This is one of those houses that you notice when you drive by...at least I do!  It has always been one of my favorites on Gould.  I run by it a couple of times a week on my 5:45 am run...always take a little look to my right..and always think to myself what a beautiful home!

I was so excited when I got to meet the owners about a year ago and was able to see the property.  They have lived in the house since 1959!  Really...1959!  Such sweet owners that are cute and hip for their age!  They met with us a year ago to start thinking about what they needed to do in order to get their house ready to sell for 2013.  They've done a pretty good job plugging away at the house and were open to us coming in and doing just a few tweaks at the very end!  It is so hard when someone has lived in their house for so long...chairs in certain places you don't really want to move, etc.!  Luckily I think this house should be OK just they way it shows because it is such a lovely family home.
