Located at the corner of South Hobart and James M. Wood Boulevards, Koreatown’s French Chateau Apartments was designed by architect Arlos Sedgley in 1937 and designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 2005. Now a condominium complex, the well-preserved Chateau contains 10 units, one of which has just popped up on the market.
Measuring 1,170 square feet, the one-bedroom, one-bath unit’s period details include parquet wood floors, dentil crown moldings, wainscoting, built-ins, and lovely original tile, while its modern updates include a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and central heat/air. It also comes with a modest-sized back patio and three underground parking spaces with direct access into the building.
Further sweetening the deal for the historic unit is its Mills Act tax benefits—according to public records, the property tax for 2015 came to just $1,349.
Last sold in 2013 for $460,000, the condo is now listed at $599,000, with monthly HOA fees of $343.
