Hot Property: Santa Fe Springs 'Extreme Makeover' home listed

April 28, 2009 |  1:37 pm


The Santa Fe Springs home that was the subject of an ABC "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" remodel in 2005 has come on the market at $999,000. The 4,267-square-foot home has nine bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Phil and Loki Leomiti paid $161,000 in December 1998 for the then three-bedroom home, according to public records.

The expanded home was intended to house the Leomitis and the orphaned Higgins clan, five siblings ages 14 through 21 whom they knew through church, but a rift developed and a legal battle ensued.

Now the Leomiti family has decided to move on, according to the listing agents.
