When Nook Sales Experts match a buyer with their dream home, the only thing as important as architectural style is the neighborhood. Luckily, each neighborhood in our regions has its own distinct flavor, and it won’t be hard to find your perfect match. That’s why we’re bringing you the #NookNeighborhoods series, where every Wednesday you’ll find cool history and culture to make sure you don’t overlook an area that could have the best nook for you.

The first time I was introduced to Melrose Avenue, I felt at home. It reminded me of Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts: not where I grew up, but where I grew into myself. Back in the 90s, that area was for the freaks, the teens and young adults who had nowhere to fit into the world except for “The

When someone says “Silver Lake,” you likely have a visceral reaction, a distinct memory, a favorite place. The Silver Lake Reservoir alone houses a dog park, playground, community center, jogging, strolling and picnicking areas. Not to mention that necessity of life, water.

Everyone has their own version of Silver Lake, and for #FastFactsFriday today, here are some fun facts you may not know:

  • Red Car Line. One of the more nostalgic pieces of history in Silver Lake is the Red Car Line. The trolley isn’t just in this neighborhood, but there are sections of land that make no sense unless you understand their place in the original trolley lines. Before moving to Los Angeles, all I knew of the Red Car was from Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but we can’t

Here at Nook, we have a passion for people, places and properties. There is a reason that we say people first, for what makes a neighborhood special if not the people who live there? Welcome to #TastemakerTuesday, where we’ll feature the visionaries in our favorite nooks who are dedicated to building a better community through their talents.

After learning about Jaime Derringer, no one can ever tell me again that being a hyphenate (a person who is active in more than one occupation or sphere) is confusing:

The key element that ties all of her interests together is design; specifically, the art in design and how it affects your life.

While getting happily lost in her blog design-milk, I found new adventures in capsule hotels, ghost kitchens, rooms

What can we add to the overwhelming love being shared for Frank Lloyd Wright’s birthday? There’s no need to pile onto the think pieces of Fallingwater’s significance or the public’s first impressions of The Guggenheim. At Nook, we value our role as specialists, poised to find the gems of houses perfect for every one of our clients. We’ll take the same route today for the anniversary of arguable our most prolific architect of the twentieth century.

  • Wright’s “gas station of the future” is still in business today. One year before

If you like living in the heart of a city but still want people to know your name, the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego should be on your list. With festivals and community events year round, it is often called the “Historic Heart of San Diego.” And truly, any neighborhood who has a statue commemorating their original

How does it feel to enter a mid-century modern home? Nook’s resident expert, Elias Tebache, has ideas:

“I believe that a home has to provoke some type of emotion at first sight and has to be functional and that's exactly what these homes are. There is an overwhelming joy when stepping into a mid-century modern home: the open flow, natural light, and just overall function of these homes is something to be desired.”

Maybe it’s because the mental health benefits of letting sunlight into your home have been proven, including better sleep, a more positive outlook on life, help with symptoms of autoimmune diseases, and even lessening of Alzheimer’s syndromes. Most of these result from maintaining a normal circadian rhythm, allowing your body to fall into

Eichler lived in a Frank Lloyd Wright home, the story goes, and thus his lifelong journey to mid century modernism began. Combining the feeling of indoor and outdoor spaces into his design, Eichlers brought a more airy option to the growing suburban middle class. It is estimated that around 11,000 homes in the Los Angeles and San Francisco region are true Eichlers. Built with materials readily available to everyone post-war, buying an Eichler home could really be seen as an embodiment of the American Dream. With the exposed posts and beams, floor to ceiling windows and skylights, an Eichler means open areas, not boxy rooms, and the spirit of letting the outside into your home.

The architectural style of an Eichler home must have felt like a dream

You may remember how excited we were to introduce 67 New Dawn, a multi-family home for sale in the prestigious Irvine neighborhood of Northwood Pointe.

You may remember it well, in fact, because it sold just four days after going live.

Even with multiple offers on day three, after a broker preview and open house, realtor Todd Bousman knew when the right family walked through the door because the “parents were staring at the soaring two story cathedral ceilings and their kids were already fighting over which room was theirs…”. Todd didn’t want to rush them through the beautiful home, even though he had a hard time choosing his favorite parts, since the Irvine home boasts such intimate spaces and large entertaining areas.
