305 Arnaz Drive
Los Angeles CA 90048
Arnaz Grove is a 4 story, 16 unit, contemporary Mediterranean style condo building in Beverly Center. Built-in 2004 by Dariush Khakshouri of Wellesley Manor Corp, these condos are quality construction. The developer also built 325 Arnaz next store a year later – they are very similar. I love the landscaping in front- with a row of 40 ft. king palms and planter beds. This building is one of a handful of newer construction buildings in the Beverly Center neighborhood. When an Arnaz Grove condo comes for sale they usually sell fast and in multiples. Since the building doesn’t have any major amenities, the HOA dues are low, even with Earthquake Insurance coverage.
Arnaz Grove is Beverly Hills adjacent and walking distance to Cedar Sinai hospital. This location has a high walk score because of its proximity to restaurants and cafes on 3rd Street and the high-end retail of North Robertson. The newly renovated Beverly Center + Beverly Connection shopping mall offers plenty of stores for whatever your favorite brand is, and the West Hollywood design district is not far.
There are several sit down restaurants within a five-minute walk from Arnaz Grove- one of these could be your new home away from home for those evenings when you aren’t in the mood to cook in your beautiful new kitchen. Or you can rotate!
For Grocery Stores, there is a Trader Joe’s on the ground level of 8500 Burton, Beverly Hills Ralphs and Bristol Farms on the corner of Beverly and Doheny, and the West Hollywood Pavilions.
This neighborhood is very quiet and Safe.
There are 4 condos on each floor- stacks 1 and 2 face the street (across the street are some beautiful jacaranda’s that bloom each year) and stacks 3 and 4 face the rear. There was about a $30,000 premium for street facing units when the building originally sold out, but since these condos rarely come on the market (it’s a small building), prices are determined by market demand.
All condos are 2BR/2BA, between 1,400 and 1,500 sqft. Floorplans are single story.
The developer installed bamboo hardwood floors in the living rooms, entry, and dining rooms which were somewhat unusual finish for the year built. Bedrooms are required by CCRs to be Carpeted except for the 1st floor. Kitchens have stainless steel appliances, cherry shaker cabinets, and bullnose granite countertops. The condo has gas, so you get a gas range. The Living Room has a balcony and gas fireplace.
The master bedrooms suite has its own finished walk-in closet, and private master bathroom with double vanity, frameless shower, and separate soaking tub. The tile in the bathroom is travertine.
There is a common area water heater and boiler on the roof that supplies hot water to all the units. Windows are Milgard, and all the doors have chrome hardware and raised panel solid core doors.
Prices Range $850,000 to $1,000,000

The HOA is not very receptive to rentals because I believe in the past they had some problems.
