Cool Home Crush – English Tudor Cumberland Heights Home

We Sold This English Tudor in Cumberland Heights 5 Years Ago

In September, 2015 we sold Bob and Martha’s English Tudor with a pool sized yard on 1027 Cumberland Rd. It was in Glendale’s historic Cumberland Heights near Brand Park.

We loved Bob, were obsessed with the vintage soul of this English Tudor, and we were a tiny bit intimidated by Martha. She was a force of nature.

Martha wouldn’t let me touch a single detail in her immaculately kept home. It killed me, but I respected the heck out of Martha. She and Bob were in their eighties and moving to a completely different part of the state.

It took a while before we attracted a buyer who got the soul of this amazing home and were not influenced by the Martha-ness.

It’s Back As A Cool Home Crush!

The current home owners have kept the soul of Bob and Martha’s home, but it is completely transformed. A huge part of that process was as simple as removing the wallpaper and painting with fresh and current neutrals. This one change, alone, will make a huge difference in the sales price.

I am NOT going to think about “what if”. Water under the bridge. Really.

This English Tudor With Pool Sized Yard Ain’t Gonna Last

I am sure this puppy will go in a red hot FLASH.

If you are an unrepresented buyer give me a call. I wanna sell this home to a worthy buyer so bad i can TASTE it!!

Sometimes all you need is different furniture

Strip the wall paper and install new light fixtures. Voila!

Martha loved her wallpaper. And, I will say this room was warm and homey in the “before” shot. But the “after” is crisp and clean like a great cup of coffee.

This is the most transformed room – it was Bob’s hideout (from Martha). Paint on the paneling, ditch the 70’s curtains, POOF!

The power of paint and furnishings to completely transform a space is astonishing. Martha would cry over painting the woodwork around the doors and windows.

The attic is reorganized into a whole suite of rooms. The kicker? It’s all done with furniture.

The current owner spent the most money on improving the yard. It is killer-diller.
