Golden Era Condo at the Legendary El Cabrillo in Hollywood | 1834 Grace Avenue

Live like a Golden Era starlet at this superb condominium located in the legendary El Cabrillo Complex in the heart of Hollywood. And with a high walk score of 95, the property is considered a “walker’s paradise” perfect for strolling to the Sunday Farmers Market, Pantages, and so much more. Long considered one of Hollywood’s most fashionable addresses, this ultra-famous Spanish Colonial Revival landmark was designed by architects Arthur and Nina Zwebell 1927-1928 and commissioned by movie mogul Cecil B. DeMille.

$775,000 | 1 Bed | 1 Bath | 940 Sq. Ft. | Built in 1928 | Historic Cultural Monument #773

El Cabrillo is the only building designed by the Zwebells using brick, a superior construction material as compared to their other courtyard buildings constructed using stucco and wood. According to The New York Times, DeMille used set craftsmen to construct “the phantasmagorial sense of architectural detail at El Cabrillo, which includes a central outdoor Moorish fountain, timbered ceilings, Catalina tile work, swashbuckling wrought-iron hardware and scaled-down versions of Citizen Kane-like carved concrete fireplaces in each apartment.” David Wallace, who once managed the property, said: “It’s like walking into a movie.”

The complex has just 10 units creating an intimate and exclusive community of home owners who take great pride in living at Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #773. The complex’s gorgeous courtyard offers its residents a lush, secure, and inspiring setting upon entry.

Inside, you’ll find the perfect pied-a-terre or a stylish and convenient forever Hollywood home. The living room features a beautiful fireplace, warm wood plank floors, exposed wood beams, and original casement windows.

The two-story living room also has a lovely chandelier, a mezzanine, and a gracefully tiled staircase.

A nicely sized dining room has garden and courtyard views.

While the incredibly chic kitchen seamlessly blends vintage with modern.

Smartly designed to take full advantage of the space, the kitchen has butcher block counters, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, hanging rack for your pots and pans, and outdoor access to a private terrace.

The terrace offers a nice spot to relax in the sunshine with a good book.

Back inside, the bathroom has a sleek soaking tub and great wood beams.

The bath also has a most handsome vanity with plenty of storage.

The unit’s exquisite bedroom has courtyard views and gorgeous wood beams.  As a designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, listed in the National Register of Historic Place, and a Mills Act property, the home offers attractive and lucrative benefits come tax season. You may also have seen El Cabrillo before: Its courtyard has recently been featured in HBO’s remake of “Perry Mason,” Ryan Murphy’s anthology series “Hollywood” and Fox’s hit summer show “911.”
