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.

There are 4 stories, condos are the 4th floor are top-level condos. The elevator in the building is old and could use replacing. The hallways are a little dreary, however, the lower price/sqft and next to Beverly Hills location are two of the leading to buy at the Summerset. Being a condo conversion, there is community laundry and no Central HVAC. The Bedroom and living room have a Wall HVAC. 



Elevator (Elevator is old and needs to be replaced)

Parking & Laundry

1 Bedroom condos get 1 parking space and 2 bedroom condos get two parking spaces. Two car spaces are Tandem. There are storage lockers in the garage. The building has 1 guest parking space. I will say the parking spaces seem a little smaller than normal. Big SUV and truck might not fit. 

Community Laundry Room

The building has Community laundry however in some condos you can install in-unit laundry. The community laundry room is in the parking garage. There are 3 washers and 3 dryers.
