 It was a twin.

The architecture and exteriors are awesome. Plumbing, electrical, closets, etc... Not so much

Did you live in a row house? Gotta love that Philly architecture.

Philadelphia. I think the newest house we lived in was built in the 1920s. The house I lived in most of my childhood was built in the 1860s.

No I totally hear you. It's not that hard to do some cosmetic upgrades. It's all just factors in the decision calculation.

I'm not from California. I grew up in houses built in the 1800s. I like newer homes because they are built for modern life. Closets, garages, laundry near your bedroom, enough outlets. I grew up with none of those things but it's so much better having them. But by my standards almost everything in Irvine is newer :) I definitely did not plan on new construction when we started looking, it was just the best fit for us based on our criteria.

$3.8M for La Vita?   I’ll take this any day of the week.  Privacy and serenity is 10x more than La Vita.

What’s wrong with you isolationists.  I chat with my neighbors pretty frequently.

Was that a joke?  People in Irvine don't even say hello to each other, let alone have conversations with their neighbors.

Uhhh, Hello. We say hi and talk all the time. Look at TalkIrvine, there is your proof.

Whick neck of the wood are you from?😀

But of course.  Anonymous online personas are well known to be perfect proxies for real life behavior.   Some of the keyboard commandos on here barely have enough time to hurl insults at each other, what with the multiple arguments they get into with their next door neighbors on a daily basis.  Riiiiiiigghhht.

Plan 4s Flooding the Market.  Exodus.  I say too ambitious.  Wealthy are not buying $3.5+ million homes now.  <5 pending entire Irvine that's $3.5+ million.  Needs to be low to mid $3 million for 119, 111, and 97.  and high $2 milion for 79

Sales volume is down but prices are still high. Must be that lag that’s coming in December.

Just a matter of time until he gets convicted/pleads...curious to see if he steps down.

Quote
California GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter's wife Margaret pleaded guilty on Thursday to conspiring with her husband to "knowingly and willingly" convert campaign funds for personal use and has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.

Both Hunters previously pleaded not guilty to federal charges that they had stolen a quarter of a million dollars in campaign funds to furnish their lavish lifestyle.

Margaret Hunter appeared alone with her lawyers in a federal district court in San Diego before Judge Thomas Whelan, where she changed her plea in the high-profile case. The congressman did not appear with his wife on Thursday.

She acknowledged she was a member of the conspiracy and as part of that conspiracy, she and her husband spent more than $10,000 on a family vacation to Italy on the campaign credit card, knowing it was well outside the family's budget. Duncan Hunter attempted to set up a one-day tour of a naval base in Italy to justify the trip.

I knew before the election he'd win but my best guess now would be his wife falls on the sword with her guilty plea and takes the brunt of the heat.

That guy is gonna get schooled in Florida.  Desantis will win easily.  And to the consternation of many, Duncan Hunter, in San Diego (if he doesn't pull out) will win his seat again.  Mark my words.

You don't understand how this work then...she is getting off easy so she can testify against Hunter.
