855 N Croft Ave
Los Angeles CA 90069

855 N Croft is a newer construction architectural 33-unit condo building in Beverly Center near West Hollywood. Developed in 2010 by Larian Development, built by Torkian Construction, and interior design by Arroyo Interior Design.

Architect Zoltan Poli of SPF: Architects designed 855 Croft in a modern style. The building is easy to pick out from the crowd because of its Colorful deep blue exterior which is in stark contrast to traditional designed 850 N Croft across the street.

855 Croft is a new iteration of design. Noteworthy for its striking geometries and integration of indoor/outdoor space usually a special privilege only reserved for houses (which SPF designs a lot of)- this building has some of the best balconies in the city. These creative spaces subvert conventional wisdom.  

The Developer didn’t get that great outdoor space without some difficulty. They need a variance from the city for rooftop decks and extra building height on the 4th floor, in exchange for the variance the developer added more vegetation at the street level to get the approval from the neighborhood. The Thick Hedges have really filled out now coming in at 10-year mark.

For context, keep in mind this building caused quite a fuss in the neighborhood when it was being built because it was quite revolutionary at that time. It had a big influence on a lot of the new Development you are seeing now in Melrose Pl, and West Hollywood Design District.

117 S Doheny Dr | Summerset Condominiums

Summerset Condominiums
117 S Doheny Drive
Los Angeles CA 90048

The Summerset – 117 S Doheny Dr is a 42-unit condo conversion building in Beverly Center. Built in 1972, the building was converted to condos in 1980 by Laurentian Development Co. The original condos came with wall-to-wall carpeting, draperies, ceramic tile kitchens, and balconies. This building has a Beverly Hills Look to it. I like the Awning- but don’t be fooled, no doorman here. This building has low HOAs. The HOA is currently planning to redo the exterior and lobby in the near future. One thing I like about these floorplans is the very big living rooms.

121 N Croft is a 29-unit mid-rise condo building located in Beverly Center. Built-in 1972, the HOA has been fixing the building up- they have already painted the exterior, and replastered the pool, and painted the hallways and installed laminate flooring in the hallways. CURRENTLY redoing the lobby, repurposing the rec room as a gym, and investigating adding in unit laundry to each unit (the 03 stack is testing it). This location is very walkable with 3rd Beverly and the Beverly Center all within 5 minutes walk. And don’t forget about the Grove and LACMA nearby also! The architect for the building was Samuel Wacht. Originally built as apartments it was later condo converted.

928 N Croft Ave | Luminaire

No properties found

Luminaire
928 N Croft Ave
West Hollywood CA 90069

928 N Croft Ave is a 12-unit newer construction modern condo building in the West Hollywood adjacent neighborhood of Beverly Center. Built in 2007, by Developer Marc Guetta – these condos have high-end finishes and Big SQFT. The Building has low HOA dues because it doesn’t offer a ton of amenities, just a nice rooftop deck. One of the things I love about 928 N Croft is the location right between Santa Monica Blvd. and Melrose Place. I don’t know why, but this building has a Santa Monica Vibe to it. I think the builder did an amazing job on the Landscaping. There is a lot of Slate tiling on the main walkway and in balconies, and sand glass. Light is good because they put in big windows.

Appreciation:

10 out of the 12-floor plans are single-story, and two are townhouse style. The two first floor units in the back are townhouse style (#102 and #103). The building has a mix of 1,2, and 3 bedroom floorplans. 

The floorplan layouts are a bit confusing because of the two townhouse condos on the 1st floor, and there are only 4 condos on the 3rd Floor penthouse level. 304 and 303 split the space of 104 & 202 for a bigger floorplan on the top level. Condos #01 and (105, 203, 304) face the street- 302, 102, 303, 103 face the rear. 

(3x) 1 BR sqft  1,000 to 1,250  PRICE $950,000    to $1,000,000

(5x) 2 BR sqft  1,800 to 2,000  PRICE $1,400,000 to $1,600,000

(4x) 3 BR sqft  2,000 to 2,200  PRICE $1,700,000 to $1,800,000

 One thing I like about these condos is the “beefy” balconies, with slate tile flooring and sand glass and stainless steel railings. You can have a BBQ out there, or plenty of space for a table and 2 chairs. Some of the condos on 2nd and 3rd floor have views.

The finishes in these condos standout- Custom Italian cabinetry by Bontempi, Cesaerstone counters, Bosch appliances. Bisazza tiles for the backsplash and bathrooms. Elica range hoods, under cabinet lighting, soft close doors, Deep soaking tubs by Zuma. Slate balcony floors. Walnut hardwood floors throughout living areas, Berber carpet in bedrooms (don’t love the berber). The master bathroom tile flooring oddly doesn’t match because it is neutral browns and the building color scheme is neutral greys. Mitsubishi Ductless HVAC, Lutron lightning dimming systems, Security video, and intercom Siedle.  

Smart floorplans, with open square kitchens to large combined living room and dining room. The living rooms have an attached balcony. Every bedroom has a bathroom.

128 N Swall Dr | Le Chambord

No properties found

One of the Best Buildings on the Block! Beautiful Elegant French Condos for Sale in Beverly Center

Le Chambord
128 N Swall Dr
Los Angeles CA 90048

Do you want to practice your french? Le Chambord is fancy, and superb. I personally love these condo’s Living Room French Windows, and the balustraded balcony. 128 N Swall is a newer construction, 30 unit, low rise condo building in Beverly Center. Built-in 1991 by developers Goldrich & Kest, the complex has an Old World European styling with symmetrical columns, balustrade balconies, French doors, hard-stone Marble & Granite and 2 elevators. Traditional furnishings fit best. However, you can have fun and break the rules!

I love this building. It is one of the best buildings in Beverly Center and sells for about $200,000 less than comparable condos in Beverly Hills on Oakhurst, which is great if you don’t need Beverly Hills schools. It’s a quiet building, with an active HOA. Whenever I walk the hallways in the summer I get the shivers, because they are freezing cold! I think every owner here locks their thermostat at 60 degrees! If you are looking for a condo for sale in Beverly Hills, look no further than this gorgeous building! 

Location

128 N Swall is located in the best condo neighborhood of Beverly Center (although some would argue for the West Hollywood area of Beverly Center). 128 N Swall neighborhood is located right NEXT to Beverly Hills. It definately has the Beverly Hills feeling about the neighborhood. In the last 5 years with the comeback of the Beverly Center and growth on 3rd street, the walkability has dramatically increased- it was average before, and now I would say above average. 128 N Swall in between Beverly and 3rd. Condos are a short walk to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, the mega shopping mall the Beverly Center, and the nearby cities of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

There are so many dining options! Celebrity Hotspot the Ivy is a block away. Trendy Lemonade is on Beverly. Bristol Farms grocery is on the corner of Doheny and Beverly. Both 3rd St and Melrose have a number of restaurants as well as the Beverly Center. New Comer Henry’s is quickly rising, and the Granville across from the grove are nearby.

If you need some new furniture to decorate your condo, the best of the best furniture retailers in Los Angeles are located in the area. The Pacific Design Center with the great blue whale is up Robertson. Restoration Hardware’s new “RH Modern” store is across the street from the Ivy. Italian Furniture maker Minotti has a store on Beverly. Basically, every company you see in Elle Decor or  Architectural Digest has a showroom in the area.

Robertson offers high-end retail clothing stores such as Chanel, Michael Kors, The Kooples, Jovani’s, All Saints, and Greg Chapman’s.

Are you a Starbucks person or a Coffee Bean Person? Whichever side of the fence you are on,  both coffee shops are across the street from each other at the corner of Beverly and Robertson. Now there is a Blue Bottle to for all you third-wavers- yes your coffee tastes better. 

With such a prime location, why would you not want to look at this condo for sale in Los Angeles next to Beverly Hills?

Real Estate

Turnover Ratio? 3.5% or about 1 condo a year.

Record sale: $1,050,000 8/25/2016

Appreciation: 4%

128 N Swall is 4 stories, with the Condos on the 4th Floor being the Penthouses. There are 8 condos on each floor, except for the first floor which only has 6 condos to make room for the entry (‘02) and the gym and conference room (‘04).

All of the floor plans are single level and have 2 bedrooms + den and two and a half bathrooms.

Square footage ranges from 1,350 sqft to 1,762 sqft. Bedrooms are a split layout. Condos have grand formal entries flanked by four vertical columns, marble floors, and raised ceilings. This is a great opportunity to decorate with an intricate stone inlay. A circular pattern would align with the cove ceiling above. If a new marble flow is out of the budget, a circular rug also does the trick, if you want to add some Oomph to the Entry.

Off the Entry is a Powder Room and Laundry Room. The Laundry room has space for side by side washer and dryer with some cabinets above.

The Main Room has three spaces the work with each other- the Living Room, Dining Room, and Den. Den’s can work for a bedroom but they won’t be very private. The dens work great for libraries, offices, play areas, and hobby rooms. The formal dining room comfortably seats 6. Living Rooms are about 250 sqft to 300 sqft and have a huge stone mantel fireplace as a focal point. The fireplace can be set up to burn wood or use gas.

condo for sale in beverly hills floor layout

Connected to the living room are french doors that lead out to a private Balcony. Condos in the ‘01, ‘02, and ‘03 stacks have street-facing views of Swall. Stacks ’04 and ’05 face the interior courtyard with the pool and spa, and ’06, ’07 and ’08 are street-facing to Clark.

Kitchens are galley style and have granite countertops. There is a nice breakfast area room for a round table and two chairs that is a nice place to sit and have your morning coffee while reading the paper. The Stove is gas.

Bedrooms have a split layout. Each bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom. The Master bedroom is larger in size than the other bedroom suite and has a walk-in closet and large master bathroom. The master bathroom has a separate tub shower and double vanity.

Penthouses have a large round skylight in their foyers.

For the time being the HOA does not allow wood flooring on the 2nd, 3rd and fourth floors, but they have been talking about revising the CCRs.
