Sold Properties and Pocket Listing Update

The Brentwood home at 650 Firth Avenue has entered escrow for the third time. Listed originally for 9.2 million in January of 2008, the property sold twice previously, after 3 major price reductions brought the asking price down to $5,000,000.  Both of those escrows did not result in successful closings. The estate, designed by  Paul Williams, was built in 1939, a wonderful example of the design and vision of this now-well known architect. The home sits on over an acre of prime land, on one of the most desirable lots in Brentwood. Signature Williams’ floating staircase. Grounds are equally impressive with mature trees and unobstructed views.
