Not quite what I’d Imagine for Tiara Street in North Hollywood

This is what those in the industry call truth in advertising. Of course, even when you’re baring all, you can still leave some details to the buyer’s imagination. Here’s the entire listing description:

This property is hold while the

While the… what? I’m dying to know, and sadly there is no answer forthcoming in the remaining photos. Guess I’ll just have to go see it for myself!

P.S. – This listing apparently went off the market between the time I found it and the time this post was scheduled to go live. Bummer. At least I saved the photos!

    This is in Hollywood?! I bet even the cockroaches wear Prada.

  2. @Denita TwoDragons: *North* Hollywood. In 2009 the L.A. Times had this to say:

    “North Hollywood neighborhood statistics: population: 77,848; median household income: $42,791”

    Nope, no Prada there.

    As for West Hollywood, incorporated in 1984 (cue the Twilight Zone theme music), for the years 2000-2009, the median income was only around $50,000 – that’s what they had – *before* taxes – to try to live with California prices. :(

    Wikipedia says that, overall, Hollywood proper has an even lower median income. The thing is, some of the major movie companies have offices or studios in or near Hollywood, and some of the movie awards groups and museums have space there, too. But the rich folks who make the movies and star in them don’t live there.

  3. RE: “Truth in advertising” for real estate…

    From my understanding, California real estate law is very strict on what has to be disclosed to potential buyers… even whether or not a home is thought to be haunted. Oh, and that “sitting smack on top of the San Andreas Fault” thing, too.

    Looks like this place has had a bit of its own earthquake wear and tear.

    @Emerald63: Oh, I see…sya learn something new every day, LOL! So basically it’s now gone to seed and is no longer the ritzy glam-fest it used to be. I know Austin has turned into a little Hollywood itself, though. I used to see glitterati all the time when I was working downtown as a security guard.

  5. @Denita TwoDragons: Seems it went to seed, but there are some efforts to spruce things up in some areas. Previously, some historic buildings were given legal protection, but now…

    “After years of serious decline, when many Hollywood landmarks were threatened with demolition, Hollywood is now undergoing rapid gentrification and revitalization with the goal of urban density in mind. The Hollywood and Highland complex (site of the Dolby [aka Kodak] Theater) has been a major catalyst for the redevelopment of the area. In addition, numerous fashionable bars, clubs, and retail businesses have opened on or near the boulevard, returning Hollywood to a center of nightlife in Los Angeles.”

    Or so says Wiki. :)

  6. It’s back! Re-listed this morning, with the same delightful set of photos.

  7. @Marty E.: Yes, but the Crawlspace All-Star Wildlife Revue (They sing! They dance!) hired a new band. You just can’t see it.

  8. …while the termites snack, and the pavement cracks.

  9. @JMixx: Methinks the pavement isn’t the only thing on crack around this place………
