Sky's Gorgeous New Listing in Hip Highland Park - 5656 Aldama st. 90042

5656 Aldama st. is my new Preferred Realty and Loan listing in the hot LA neighborhood that everybody seems to ask me about, Highland Park. Highland Park is a hilly and historic area in Northeast Los Angeles (NELA to the locals) just North of Downtown LA. "HLP" runs along the Arroyo Seco and 110 freeway and has many beautiful views of Downtown and the San Gabriel Mountains from its palm tree lined streets. HLP is on the upswing and is gentrifying quickly just like Silver Lake did 10 years ago as artists, musicians and creative types flock to the lush valleys and hillsides. New restauraunts are opening on York Blvd each month and the Highland Park Art Walk is getting bigger all time. In the last couple of years Highland Park has blossomed into a hip, fun and stylish neighborhood. It is very centrally located on the East Side of Los Angeles, no more than 10 minutes from Downtown LA, Pasadena, Glendale, Burbank, Silver Lake or Echo Park. There is a Metro Stop to allow train access all over the city and there are three freeways nearby making it a short trip to anywhere. Prices in this neighborhood are lower than neighboring South Pasadena and Eagle Rock but home prices in the zip code 90042 is steadily increasing as more and more people discover the area and move in.

My listing at 5656 Aldama is situated essentially in the middle of Highland Park nearby both the York Blvd. and Figueroa Blvd. commercial areas. This historcal home has been painstakingly renovated and brought back to life as a stylish oasis. The grounds of the home are very lush, with tall mature trees all around. This is a "Green" house in every sense of the word.  In the front yard are drought tolerant succulents on top of xeriscaping to be very water conscious. Giant old bamboo trees line the North side of the property and provide shade and privacy with an Asian flair.
