Dear friends and neighbors,

I just listed a very special home North of Montana, and the owner has asked me to extend a special invitation to just my circle of influence.

If you’ve seen this property before, it’s now redone and a must-see. Given the stale sameness in new construction today, this beauty offers the architecture of yesterday, complemented by modern updates.

Already an exclusive neighborhood of Santa Monica, North of Montana is becoming even more so: it boasts the highest rate of real estate appreciation in Los Angeles, due to a “surge of international buyers and executives from the growing Silicon Beach tech hub.” (LA Times) Montana Avenue is full of fine shopping and dining, including many restaurants serving organic and locally grown food. There are gyms and pilates or yoga studios aplenty – anyone who is into fitness is trying to get in to North of Montana if they can afford it. Staying healthy is a way of life here!
