Associate Partners Laura Brandt and Rachel Ashton, sought-after real estate specialists based out of Partners Trust’s La Cañada Flintridge office, recently represented the sellers of a record-setting $10.5 million sale. Within the past three years, both Laura and Rachel have swiftly become top-producing agents and, as of recent, have exceeded all expectations with the highest recorded home sale in La Cañada Flintridge history.
The 11,269-square-foot home, located at 4110 Woodleigh Lane, sits beyond a gate entry upon a highly-coveted 2.3 acre lot in a prime locale. Evocative of an Irish Country Manor, the home—built in 1928—last sold in 2004 for $5.75 million and subsequently underwent three years of dramatic renovation, updating and expansion.
The present architectural is comprised of five bedrooms, five full baths and three half baths, as well as a formal library, screening room, an open wine cellar adjacent to a billiards room, in addition to countless other living spaces. Detached from the home is a two-story guest house, contiguous to a three-hole golf course.
This past May, both Brandt and Ashton acquired the listing as an exclusive off-market property and sold the home within a mere two months. This astounding $10.5 million deal far transcended the previous La Cañada Flintridge record of $7.85 million. In an interview with local newspaper Outlook, Laura emphasized how this transaction serves as a presage of the increasing value of La Cañada real estate: “Just in the last year, the high-end market (homes selling for $5 million or more) had much more movement and that’s a good sign for the future stability of the market.”
Congratulations to both Laura Brandt and Rachel Ashton on this incredible, record-breaking deal.
