Light-filled Koreatown condo with two bedrooms asks $699K

By Elijah Chiland

This airy two-bedroom condo is situated in Koreatown’s elegant Miramonte Terrace.

Now seems to be the time to buy in the building—we spotted another unit in this week’s Curbed Comparisons.

Built in 1922, the Italianate complex is positioned around a central courtyard with vintage light posts and neatly trimmed hedges that frame a stone fountain. This particular unit is outfitted with hardwood floors, French doors, coved ceilings, and access to a private balcony.

The condo has 1,491 square feet of living space, with two bathrooms, a formal dining room, a well-equipped kitchen and pantry, and a walk-in closet in the master bedroom. Building amenities include a barbecue area and a common room with a vintage pool table. The unit also comes with a one-car garage and a second outdoor spot.

Chipper ’60S Ranch in Highland Park’s Arroyo View Estates Asking $1.16M

By Pauline O’Connor

This three-bedroom, two-bath ranch is located just off of Easy Street in Arroyo View Estates, the charming midcentury tract of about 200 homes on the eastern outskirts of Highland Park.

When it last appeared on the market in July 2017, the 1,750-square-foot residence was a real sore for sighted eyes, sporting an abundance of window-bars, popcorn ceilings, taupe carpets, and ecru walls. A year later, there’s been a transformation that would put a slew of ’90s teen movies to shame.

Per the listing, the home has been revamped with new bamboo floors, quartz countertops, windows and sliders, high-end appliances, designer tile, new and vintage lighting, a new roof, a tankless water heater, a new HVAC system, and new landscaping.

Open House Obsession: Welcome Home To The Camellia Cottage, $4M

By Philip Ferrato

Where: 1413 Wentworth Avenue, Oak Knoll, Pasadena
When: Sunday, July 1 from 1:00pm-4:00pm
Asking: $3,988,000
What: Camellia Cottage, a wonderful “cottage” to accommodate long-term guests, originally built as part of the legendary Huntington (currently the Huntington Langham) Hotel’s postwar expansion in the late 1940s, and now a 5-bed, 6-bath home with a swimming pool in the courtyard.

Other cottages had been built during the 1920s in the hotel’s classic Pasadena Mission Style, but this one, built in 1948, is very much in the spirit of William Wurster, the Northern California architect best known for designing exquisitely (and expensive) simple homes for the modest rich. At some point in the late 1980s, most of the cottages were sold off (during the hotel’s post-earthquake hiatus, demolition, and reconstruction) and incorporated into the historic Oak Knoll neighborhood.

In this U-shaped structure of painted stucco, board-and-batten, and softly glowing, white interiors, the classic Mid-Century California Rancho aesthetic has been both preserved and enhanced.

An Homage to Hollis Benton :: Curated By Aaron Moulton

Hollis Benton was a Los Angeles based gallerist whose gallery and exhibitions helped define the visual culture of the 1980s. Curated by Aaron Moulton, Over the Influence Los Angeles’ latest exhibition pays homage to Benton with a stunning group show. In 1980, Benton opened his gallery on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. For nearly a decade, the Hollis Benton Gallery brought together the works of artists whose visions were unique to the era. Benton supported influential artists such as Patrick Nagel, LeRoy Neiman, and Peter Shire. Over the Influence’s “An Homage to Hollis Benton” references some of the collaborations between Benton and these artists. For example, the new exhibition features a nod to Benton’s 1987 hit show titled “Slippery When Wet: Fresh Painting Now” which included the works of Patrick Nagel, Don Sorenson, James Harvard, Robert Yarber and LeRoy Neiman. The pieces of contemporary art exhibited in “An Homage to Hollis Benton” were carefully curated to complement Benton’s legacy as a gallerist, curator, and maverick tastemaker.
