This newly built cliff-side mansion overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Southern California comes with an ambitious $32.5 million asking price. It’s one of the most expensive homes for sale in San Diego County, and that price tag puts it in the running to break a local record in the picturesque beach-side community of La Jolla.

Perhaps more interesting than its potentially record-breaking price is the fact that the home was designed and constructed by Las Vegas-based builder Blue Heron, which almost exclusively designs and builds luxury mansions in the Mojave desert.

“I would consider us the authority and the experts in luxury real estate in all of Las Vegas without a doubt,” said Blue

South Berkeley house fire displaces at least 2 people Friday

Berkeley firefighters rescued an elderly woman from a burning house Friday afternoon after a fire broke out in one of its bedrooms, authorities report.

Firefighters had to take the woman out through her bedroom window because flames had reached her interior doorway when they got inside, said Interim Deputy Fire Chief Keith May. The woman declined medical care at the scene.

May said the fire displaced two people in the single-story home, and that the American Red Cross had responded to help them secure shelter.

The Berkeley Fire Department was dispatched to the fire, in the 1900 block of Stuart Street (near Martin Luther King Jr. Way), at 2:52 p.m. The first crew got to the scene at 2:54 p.m. and saw black smoke coming from the residence.

“Within a moment or so, one of the residents had fled out of the house saying someone was still inside,” May said.

The Suburban Home Of Denver’s Wealthy

Some 80 years ago, a group of concerned citizens banded together to form a coalition whose sole purpose was to protect their little town of Cherry Hills Village from encroaching commercialization.

The area’s pastoral beauty with wide-open fields sprinkled with patches of cottonwoods and placid bodies of water had attracted the attention of Denver residents looking to escape the city—it also drew the attention of developers looking to add businesses and industrial plants. Thus, the Cherry Hills Improvement Association was born and thanks to their efforts, Cherry Hills Village remains commercial-free to this day.

Santa Barbara’s famed Slavin House still searching for buyer

Slavin House in Santa Barbara has it all: impeccable mid-century modern lines. An outdoor pool with an expansive ocean view. A star designer — Richard Neutra — who was “one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century,” according to the LA Conservancy. 

This legendary mid-century modern home is up for sale in California’s Central Coast, but even in the state’s breakneck real estate market, Slavin House is languishing.

Callahan couple devastated, discovered dream home was listed

CALLAHAN, Fla. – A Callahan couple was shocked to find out that their property was listed on Zillow without their knowledge when a realtor came to their residence and started pictures.

Susan and Kris Jones said a person posed as a realtor posted the property and refused to take it down unless they paid him.

The couple recently moved out to a home on almost 3 acres in Callahan.

“We turned 50 this year. This was our dream property,” Kris Jones said.

Everything was going well until they were put in the middle of a scam.

Jonathan Daugherty, a local realtor, said he sees incidents like this all the time. He said it happened to his neighbor.

“They have a 1.2 million lot. We look on Zillow one day, and they had it for sale for 285,000,” Daugherty said.

He said he’s had 10-11 fraud cases in the past 10

Buying a Waterfront Home Can Boost Your Property Value by

90210 (Beverly Hills, California), 11962 (Sagaponack, New York, AKA the Hamptons), and 10007 (Tribeca, New York City) are zip codes known for being home to some of the most expensive real estate in America. But get this: There’s one feature of a home, condo, townhome or apartment that has nothing to do with the footprint of the property itself, or even what it looks like inside, that can actually make a massive difference in a home’s property value.

According to a report by the home warranty company, American Home Shield using Zillow data from February and March 2022, a home’s view can drastically impact how much it’s worth. Not all views move the needle the same amount, however.

Here are three styles that stand out—positively and negatively.

Vacant home becomes problem property on Detroit’s east side

DETROIT – A vacant home has become a problem property for the residents on Detroit’s east side.

One man says he’s been calling the city and officials about this problem property, and Wednesday night, Local 4 is helping him get answers.

The abandoned home sits in a neighborhood right across from the Stellantis Mack Assembly Plant near St. Jean and East Warren Avenue on the city’s east side.

64-year-old Kenneth Holloway is sick and tired of the condition of the home next door on Beniteau Street.

“This place right here, man, is terrible,” said Holloway. “We have to look at this and deal with this every day. I can’t go in the backyard. You hear animals and things rubbing back there. It’s a lot of garbage and stuff that was left behind. No one is doing nothing.”


Neighbors moved out of the home months ago, and ever since

City of La Crosse and Rivercrest Village compromise on

Rivercrest Village

The city of La Crosse wants to nearly triple the rent for a lease on land occupied by the South Side mobile park Rivercrest Village.

A lease is likely to be renewed between the city and Rivercrest Village after officials reached a compromise on rent rates for property located in the mobile home park.

On Thursday, the Finance & Personnel Committee approved to drop the annual rate from the previous proposal to $5,000 after the owners pushed back and said they wouldn’t agree to the original, higher price.

The property in question is a small segment of the large South Side mobile home park that the city came to own after the construction of the Pammel Creek floodway channel. The city has rented the property out to Rivercrest Village since 1997.
