Looking for that character filled home? Check out these 5 between $600,000 and $800,000

I have a client who lives in what is arguably the best condo conversion LA has ever seen. In the heart of Beverly Hills this building was lovingly restored to its original grandeur by one of the cities best known developers. With the original crown moldings, original hardwood floors, and original windows these units provide each resident with old Hollywood glamour with the best modern conveniences money can buy. From the viking appliances in the newly remodeled kitchen to the marble countertops and subway tile in the bathrooms these units leave the home owners wanting for nothing. That being said, having lived in her unit since the conversion was completed in 2007, J is ready to move on. But finding the luxury and the finishes she has become accustomed to, is much easier said than done.

With my previous Hot Property of the week, https://realrealtyla.wordpress.com/2011/12/24/realrealtyla-8/, matching all of her criteria bar price, we have continued our search to find J the perfect two bedroom, character filled home under $800,000. Below are my 5 top contenders currently on the market.
