The graceful Colonial-style home, which dates to 1920, has come on the market for the first time in … [+] decades at $5.75 million.

Hilton & Hyland

Stories of property values increasing by 5,000% over the last fifty years are not uncommon in states like California—in 1970, the statewide average home price was $24,300 and is as of early this year just under $800,000.

Nevertheless, it is still shocking to hear of price increases like that of a recently listed home in Los Angeles’ Windsor Square. The last time the property traded hands was in 1969 when it was purchased for just $60,000, or approximately 1% of today’s $5.75-million asking price.

Built in 1920 with designs by residential architect Robert D. Jones, this stately structure features a traditional Colonial-style facade with columns, a line of dormer windows on the roof and an ornate balustrade above the front door.
