Real Estate Report: The Most Expensive One-Bedroom House in LA Does Not Do “Cozy”


The Basics: A 1-bed, 1.75-bath ranch house on a .36-acre lot with a pool. Originally built in 1953 and extensively remodeled, it first hit the market in March, 2009 asking $4.995M. Unsold, it went off the market and reappeared this week priced at $3.75M. We’re not surprised it’s the most expensive one-bedroom house in Los Angeles.

Not So Basic: A no-surface-left-behind renovation resulted in an almost completely open plan and reduced the number of bedrooms to one.

What We Love: The wide-open, undecorated expanses completely lacking in any concession to “warm” or “cozy” plus the ’50s-vintage hedges surrounding the property.

Not even a hanging fixture over the dining table:

The only thing hanging on a wall is the television in the master bedroom:

For keeping your fans at bay:

Possibly the perfect house for someone who has another house nearby to contain the detritus/clutter of life/children or a great place to work out the kinks in that screenplay.
