La Terrasse, 447 N Doheny Dr
La Terrasse is a newer construction luxury condo development in Beverly Hills. La Terrasse was completed in 2010 and has 20 units. There are five stories, including four penthouses on the fourth and fifth floors.
La Terrasse is on the Beverly Hills side of Doheny (the west side of the street with all the palm trees), and features single story floor plans plus full service amenities. The 01 and 05 stacks are street facing and have nice outdoor balconies. The 02,03, and 04 stacks face the rear and are more private and quiet. A perk with any property in Beverly Hills is that you get Beverly Hills schools.
A drawback of Doheny address is traffic. I categorize Doheny as a short cut street- it has two lanes plus a turn lane. Double pain windows eliminate traffic noise inside.
La Terrasse was designed by Levin-Morris Architects. I think they did a great job with the design. Contemporary buildings can sometimes be plain and blocky. This design has variety and the façade is both engaging and beautiful.
The landscaping in front features palm trees and well ordered shrub beds. The building has a lot of curb appeal.
When you speak with the developer Brian Adler, who also developed Beverly Park, you can tell he really went all out with La Terrasse. The building exterior has attractive Limestone stone cladding which really makes this building standout from other 80’s and 90’s condo buildings on Doheny that have stucco exteriors. The elevator in the parking garage has a huge glass entry and sitting area. The rooftop deck has a floating floor tile system that has no unsightly drains. Otis elevator takes owners up and down. The Viking fridges have matching panels to the cabinetry. There are thirty-two monitored security cameras throughout the building.
The 1,2,4, and 5 stacks are 2br 2.5ba of approximately 2,000 sqft. These floor plans are abnormally large for a 2br floor plan in a condominium, typical 2br floor plans can range from 1,000 to 1,500 sqft.
The 3 stack are the 1br+1.5 bath units that again are huge for 1br at 1,600 sqft. A perk with the 1br units is that they have 2 parking spaces.
The penthouse units are 4,000 sqft 3br 4.5 ba. And are unit numbers 401,402,501, and 502
Hand brushed Walnut flooring gives the units natural warmth. Flexible floor plan allows 2nd bedroom to be easily converted to den. Separate tub and steam shower in master baths. All the doors are solid core Mahogany.
His and Hers finished Walk in Closets.
It might be surprising to buyers that there is a 24 hour front desk; buildings of this size usually don’t offer this amenity. Additional amenities include fitness room with changing bathrooms, a media room with leather theater seating and Hi-Definition 110″ screen Panasonic Projector, with full Kitchen. 10 units have his and hers masterbaths. All park is side by side. Each unit has storage areas.
HOAs range from $1,280 – $2,300
