↑ This two-bedroom condo off of Wilshire in Westwood is looking a little spare right now, but we suppose that helps draw attention to the ample 1,402-square-feet of living space. The unit also offers hardwood floors, marble countertops, and views of the Los Angeles Country Club. It’s asking $919,000, with HOA dues of—get ready—$1,436 per month. Those go toward amenities like a pool, fitness center, and valet parking.
