Designed by Kenneth Macdonald Jr., the architect of Downtown’s Spring Street Arcade Building and Glendale’s Southern Pacific Station, the 1928 historic building is the best French Chateau-style condo complex to line the streets of Koreatown. The Mills Act approved structure stands elegantly at 855 S. Serrano Ave. Restored in 2006, the 15-unit complex retains its hotel-style lobby, controlled access, and secure parking, along with many original details.
Similar to Cliff Fong and photographer Johnathan Ducrest’s former residences, this three-bedroom home offers an updated take on its original charm. Measuring a tad under 2,400 square feet, broad picture windows line the interior letting in tons of natural light. Features include, hardwood floors throughout, a bygone-era-style French plaster mantle surrounds the faux fireplace in the living, and coved ceilings. Two of the three bedrooms are ensuite with one of the rooms offering a spacious balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee.
When you feel like stepping out for a little entertainment or a bite to eat you’re near the Wiltern and The Line which holds the “Commissary, a sun-soaked, greenhouse-inspired restaurant famous for its weekend brunch buffet (shout-out to the prime rib carving station); Pot Lobby Bar for happy hour Moscow mules and old-fashioneds; and Break Room 86 for karaoke and dancing.”
Currently listed for $985,000 with monthly HOA dues of $547.
