Salvator Xuereb? Who?

BUYER: Salvator Xuereb
LOCATION: St. George Street, Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $915,000 (purchase price)
SIZE: 1,974 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: Classic Spanish with charm and character in Franklin Hills / Los Feliz. Lovingly preserved, this beautiful home retains many original details popular to the 1920s era. Features include; wood floors, formal entry, sunken formal living room, formal dining, breakfast cove, built-ins, fireplace, original picture windows, basement bonus room, large yard, new landscaping, bolted foundation, copper plumbing, automatic sprinkler system and so much more.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Yesterday Mister Big Time wanted to know who purchased the fairly modest house on St. George Street in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles through an entity called The Queen Street Trust. The answer is...drum roll please...the house was purchased by a gentleman named Salvator Xuereb and his wifey, writer Nikki Toscano.

No babies, we did not know who either of those people are either until Lucy Spillerguts, one of our cohorts in digging up information, sent us a link to the man's acting resume on IMDB. Mister Xuereb, whose name we think is pronounced Shoo-rebb, may not be a household name, but since the early 1990s he certainly has appeared in a lot of television programs one or two times. Which is sorta sad, right? Somebody, please, call Mister Shoo-rebb and give him a regular gig on a television show. He's good looking, knows his way around a set, and he's got two kids and a wife to feed. And now he's got a mortgage to pay. Somebody. Call him.

The Spanish style house is really quite charming and lovely and while it's not what we've come to expect from the rich and famous, Mister Shoo-rebb is not rich and famous, so this house seems totally appropriate for a barely working actor and his writer wife.

Mister Big Time was skeptical of the "large yard" that was noted in the listing, and the photos above show just how large, or small, the yard really is. You decide. Big or little?

Your Mama appreciates that original detailing remains intact on the property and there are plenty of happy making features, such as high, coved ceilings, a fireplace, and proper entry way that make it a house in which Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter would be comfortable. We don't cotton to the big houses much (the idea of a live in or daily maid to clean a huge house makes our skin crawl), so the modest size works for us. Of course, we'd prefer electronic drive gates, a big view, and a swimming pool in a neighborhood a little farther West.

I'm in love with all authentic Spanish bungalow houses. Thanks for another Spanish 'fix' Mama :)

This house is quite nice, especially the living room. And the yard (with no pool, yeay!) is as much as I'd want. I don't know this guy is either, but I hope he got a similarly nice house.

Very nice family home. I'd buy it-then add some color to the walls!

This looks like it was created by the same architect/builder as the 2 story apartment I rented on Palmerston Place in Los Feliz.....(the big peachy-orange building with underground parking half-way up)
