The second house was a large home in Ortega Forest. Lifted straight out of the 70’s the home had not been occupied for some time but had been meticulously maintained the former owners despite the fact that it was vacant. Remember Papagallo and Lilly Pullitzer, the home seems to have been frozen in time from that era with lots of turquoise blue, lime green, terrazzo floors and matching furniture. It was a large pool home with over 3,000 SF and the buyers snapped it up within a matter of days. The list price was $395K and the house sold for $370K.
