Open House Report, Los Angeles: Two Crisp Condos and a Mews House Open This Weekend


LA’s most interesting residential direction is in tightly-packed, multi-level dwellings, well-connected to intimate outdoor spaces with private roof-top decks with views over the neighborhood. They’re modestly but carefully designed, taking their cues from the minimalist lofts in Venice and West Hollywood and the work of Mid-Century architects like Richard Neutra. Here are three in the Los Feliz/Atwater Village/Eagle Rock area just right for someone interested in design.

3341-1/2 West Rowena Avenue, Los Feliz, 799,900 (pictured above)
New construction infill in a vintage neighborhood, the stylish 3-level, 2-bed, 2.5-bath units have direct access to 2-car carports underneath. Meanwhile we’ll be happy with the view of Los Feliz and the polished concrete floors— not much in the way of images online and worth a visit in person. Estimate HOA dues of $199 a month. Open Sunday, April 8 from1:00pm to 4:00pm

4288 Perlita Avenue, Los Feliz/Atwater Village, $599K
Midway between Los Feliz, Glendale and Pasadena, this 24-unit project of “mew’s houses” have nothing to do with cats and everything with a re-interpretation of Mid-Century design and LA minimalism, just very close together. The crisp 3-bed, 2.5-bath units have polished concrete floors and wall-filling sliding glass doors to bring the outside in. Built in 2010, no mention of HOA dues in the listing, or “green” features, but there is air conditioning.  Open Sunday, April 8 from1:00pm to 5:00pm

4776 Rock Row Drive, Eagle Rock, $539k
Part of a project completed in 2010 by Heyday, the same people who brought us the DIck+Jane houses, this resale is a 2-bed, 2-bath, 3-level unit that just came on the market. Nice outdoor space, garage, plus solar power and all the other elements that LEED certification requires. HOAs of a whopping $98 a month. Open Saturday, April 7 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm
