About 844 South Lucerne Boulevard

When discussing the subjects of urban density and quality of life in major metropolitan areas, the general consensus is that the two constructs are incompatible. Land in our area is scarce, sacred, and when new construction is planned, it rarely includes plans for open spaces, leaving its denizens to travel elsewhere to find their own verdant experiences. Prior to WWII, the City of Los Angeles' landscape was dotted with apartment and condominium buildings that incorporated lush gardens and enclosed yards which, as Barbara King wrote in 2014 in the Los Angeles Times, 'No architectural style evokes L.A. more than courtyard apartments. They're romantic, private, and magical.' Courtyard buildings bring people together through the design of the building and common, central areas which, in this case, is the locus of the property. Like many of Southern California's properties, this property is a period revival. The overall design of the building borrows elements from European classical architecture. But rather than focusing on any one particular style, the builder chose a combination of Spanish Colonial, Andalusian, and Mediterranean Revival styles to create an independent style of architecture that has withstood a century's worth of developers and wrecking ball. Converted to luxury condominiums in 2001, the four-unit complex maintains nearly all of its original character-defining features. This second-floor unit represented here has a grand, two-story foyer, oversized Palladian windows, original hardwood floors, high, wooden-beamed ceilings, and a large, formal dining room. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite features tall, double windows that overlook the courtyard, ample closet space, and a vintage dressing room. The second and third east-facing, light-filled bedrooms are at the rear of the unit and could double as the perfect space for today's at-home work needs. The kitchen and breakfast room are quite large for a 1920s structure and the added bonus of having in-unit, private laundry facilities along with two, dedicated parking spaces makes this offering the perfect housing opportunity. Lastly, if you are looking for a final component to aid in your decision to buy, the large, community pool is all the reason you need!
