Sleek and Modern Split-Level

You know a house just like this — it’s the one you drive by all the time and think “I wonder what it’s like inside.” Well, here’s your chance. For me, I’ve watched this house for over 10 years. And until 2014 — it was just a cool-looking house with lots of potential. In 2014 it was flipped for a cool $1.1M and now it’s back on the market for a little more (times change, and so do prices). 

This house is a great starting point. Add in the right decor and you’re most of the way there. If I have any complaints — anything that sticks out that could be improved upon — it’s that the renovation was a little safe. This home is missing some of the bespoke details that let you know it’s not just a nice house, but a personalized one. That, and the backyard — it could be so awesome. It’s a large lot and the upstairs balcony means you’ll have a commanding view. But it needs a pool and outdoor entertaining space. In the world of $1M+ homes in North Tustin — I think that’s just an expectation. 

And as for my first complaint — what do I mean about personality? The absolute best flips I’ve ever been through are the ones that don’t look like flips at all. You want a home that feels personal — like someone put their own thoughts into it. But there’s also a danger, especially with modern homes, of trying too hard. Good design is effortless. Good design doesn’t look like design at all — it just “is.” And I think this one is missing bespoke details that look like they came about as a result of someone living there. Make no mistake, it’s a wonderful renovation — but it just needs that something extra to make it to the next level.

With inventory levels this low in North Tustin — a modern *anything* is pretty rare.
