Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2015
European-based premium real estate brand, Engel & Völkers is proud to support historic activist-made-celebrity, Erin Brockovich, in the sale of her timeless Augora Hills home.
Portrayed by world-renowned Hollywood actress, Julia Roberts in the 2000 biographical film, Brockovich’s environmental efforts became known across the globe, making the activist a household name and her hilltop hideaway a hot commodity. Engel & Völkers Beverly Hills advisor, Alan Bess, is proud to be listing this property. “Listing a celebrity home always offers and added thrill, but in this case, where the home owner was brought to fame through her philanthropic devotion, the sale takes on a deeper meaning,” says Bess.
Set in a family-friendly neighborhood, ideal for children and central to fantastic restaurants and shopping, the home boasts stunning views, a perfect pool, a custom bar and a newly upgraded, classic kitchen. “Property values in Agoura Hills have been on a steady rise and 2015 has been no different,” says Raphael Barragán, CEO of Engel & Völkers Beverly Hills. This comes as no surprise for an area that Barragán, describes as a “unique suburban community exemplified by a commitment to the preservation of its history, a high quality of life, a lively business community, and environmental awareness.” Originally purchased by Brockovich in 1997 for $900,000, the home is currently listed at $2,350,000.
