Agoura Horse Property - Custom & Equestrian Real Estate by Nona Green

 
Friday, July 13, 2012

A custom home is designed based on the lot it sits on. It is also defined by the fact that it is truly unique and one of a kind. It is especially designed to meet the specifications of the client who commissions the construction.

There was a home that recently sold in Old Agoura that was one of several in the area constructed from the identical house plans. The homes are not distinguishable from each other except for their respective locations.

It probably doesn't matter to the buyer that the home has many "twins" in the same town. The situation does bring up the question however; a seller should be careful when presenting his home as a custom home, especially if he is aware that the home is one of several and by definition, not custom.

There was a lawsuit recently filed by a homeowner who thought he was buying a unique, one-of-a-kind home. He happened upon an identical property that had been constructed using the same house plans. The seller did not know about the existance of the other home yet was found quilty of misrepresentation. The architect also sued for copyright infringement, claiming that he did not authorize the copy-cat home.

GOODBYE to National Park Service Thousand Oaks Visitor Center - closing this weekend.

HELLO to King Gillette Ranch new Visitor Center - first 'green' construction project for the Park Service. Bio-diverse, historical and scenic, the Ranch was purchased from Soka University in 2007 after many attempts to develop the land had failed for environmental reasons. This is an important acquisition for the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and Calabasas. Real estate along Stokes Canyon just became more desirable for equestrians. Horses are allowed, yet there is not yet a designated trailer parking area. Trailer rigs might be better off parallel parked just north of Mulholland on Stokes Canyon Rd. which is plenty wide for a truck and trailer to u-turn. There is a park access point right across from Stokes Canyon so you don't have to walk the horses along Mulholland to the main park entrance. There is only a couple of miles of trails at this point. If ever the park cuts a connector trail to Malibu Creek State Park, then King Gillette would be a worthwhile destination for riders. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed beyond the Vistors Center. Be the first to visit the park while before the cigarette butts take over: http://lamountains.com/parks.asp?parkid=670

I hope your dogs were not freaked by the fireworks last night. I went to a party and while I was gone, my retriever scratched screen doors to shreds (trying to get inside the house) and then dug her way out of the yard and started running in a random direction until a neighbor (thank you Dr. Peter Roth - Agoura Hills orthodontist and animal lover) found her a mile away from the house. Jeez, you'd think a so-called hunting dog would just "deal with it". Next year, I'm giving her a Valium and not letting her out of my sight.
