A New Winery & Coffee Place In Town

March 28, 2014

There is a new winery in town called Chandler Reach.  They have taken over the former Canon del Sol spot next to Goose Ridge and Long Shadows.   They offer a Tuscan experience which their tasting room elegantly reflects.   I will have to admit I have yet to taste their wines but have recently enjoyed their coffee.

Woodinville has a new coffee spot!  With the loss of Tully’s there has been a missing coffee connection for the locals.   I mean, we love you, The Commons,  but coffee from San Francisco??

Anyway,  The Designated Driver Coffee Co. is now open at Chandler Reach 14450 Woodinville Redmond Rd NE #107.  They open at 6 a.m. and rumors have been confirmed that the owners of Chandler Reach and longtime Woodinville residents, Len and Jane Parris, founded former coffee icon Jitters in the Overlake area of Redmond.   I guess you can say these are locals that know their vices……

Yakima Valley encompasses significant diversity of climate, topography, and soil; and this diversity yields a broad spectrum of high-quality grapes and wines. Four American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) – Yakima Valley, Red Mountain, Rattlesnake Hills, and
Snipes Mountain – highlight this impressive regional complexity.

This four and a half minute video offers a glimpse of this phenomenal wine growing region.

Hollywood Hill Real Estate News-November

November 7, 2013

hollywood-hill-school-house-thumb.jpgThe hill is hot!   The absorption rate for new listings is under 2 meaning that it is an excellent sellers market and there is only about a two month supply of  housing inventory at the pace buyers are buying.

Year to Date -  Solds:  52  homes have sold priced from $230,000 to $1,685,000

Recent Pending:  10 homes priced from $425,000 to $1,298,000

Active Listings:  13  homes are available on the hill priced from $558,500-$1,986,000.

The current entry price point to buy a home on Hollywood Hill is about $100,000 more than 6 months ago.   $558,500 is the new low for the neighborhood.

On the other end of the spectrum the luxury home market or those homes over $1,000,000 is still a little sluggish.   There seems to be a barrier to the $2,000,000 price point.   It has not been broken this year.  So, there are some fabulous buys in the higher end, luxury,  home market.

Hollywood Hill is made up of approximately 1,400 homes.   The beauty of the neighborhood is that there are homes that were built in the early 1900’s and then throughout the century into the next.   It is a diverse neighborhood and at anytime there may be a property that is older in construction, unimproved or with less square footage that may become available under $500,000.

On the other hand,  the luxury home market abounds with fantastic homes that you could not replicate or build for the price offered today.   Throw in the low interest rates and this is truly a market for both buyers and sellers.

For these reasons,  if you are looking to purchase a home or sell one on the hill it is important to work with an agent that knows Hollywood Hill and can provide up to the minute data on available properties. (If you are not working with an agent and need one for Hollywood Hill – call me at 206-200-9849)
