Hot Property: 1310 Laveta Terrace Featured in the LA Times!


1310 Laveta Terrace - Hot Property
1310 Laveta Terrace // Los Angeles 90026

 

Shock rock legend Alice Cooper has a duplex for sale in Echo Park at $1.299 million. No, this isn’t an investment property he happens to own — it’s a space he has used as a writer’s retreat when in town creating music for himself and the Hollywood Vampires.


The two-unit house was built in 1927 and maintains its Spanish-style roots with arched windows and passages. The 2,027 square feet of interiors, however, look fresh and new with updated kitchens, bathrooms and light walls. The singer-songwriter-actor completely renovated the duplex when he bought it in 2006 for $700,000.

Pam Franklin Cycles, Raises Money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society

Pam Franklin - Cycle 1

June 3rd, 2018

Pam Franklin participated in the 27th Annual “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – Lake Tahoe,” a charity cycling event for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS). The awe-inspiring ride was a 100-mile ring around Lake Tahoe, through California and Nevada, with spectacular scenery, clean mountain air, great food and more.

Pam Franklin - Tahoe 1 Pam Franklin - Cycle 2 Pam Franklin - Tahoe 3

Pam trained several months for this event with an organization called Team in Training, a national fundraising arm of LLS. With her hard work and dedicated efforts, she was able to raise $5,130, nearly twice her stated goal. And, as a group, Team in Training raised over $4,000,000!

 

These donations will help fund treatments that save lives every day. These include immunotherapy, which uses a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. We are extremely proud of Pam for her tireless efforts in support of this life-saving work.

Pam Franklin - Cycle Fun

“Thanks to all the wonderful, generous Podley agents and staff who supported my effort!” – Pam
