Hot Property of the Week – 04/11/12

2203 N. Beachwood Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90068

Asking Price: $529,000

Two bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms in 1,200sq.ft

Walter C. King, Architect. The Chateau Beachwood, 1937. Purportedly built by Warner Brothers to house female starlets, Chateau Beachwood has a rich Hollywood history, with past residents including Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe. Converted to condominiums in 1989, the building features 10 units that boast decorative character elements including strip-oak flooring, magnesite stairways, “wedding-cake” relief plaster, and wood casement windows. 2203 Beachwood’s corner influence provides for substantial natural light and includes two spacious bedrooms, original master bathroom, powder room, living room, dining area, and kitchen with adjacent laundry room.

I went to the broker’s open on Tuesday and this condo really is worth seeing, it is by far the first condo that has really excited me in a while. At this price, this condo is the best single family home alternative you’ll find. With only one common wall by the staircase you are surrounded on three other walls by large windows facing west, south and east, ensuring the unit is bathed in sunlight all day long.
