Los Angeles | $599,000
A one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit in a historic condominium complex
Designed in 1942 by Reginald Davis Johnson, the Village Green is a highly regarded example of a modernist garden city. The low-rise residential buildings face an open green space, and the site is landscaped with mature trees and paths intended to give city dwellers a taste of the country. The complex was designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 1977 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
The complex is in the Baldwin Hills neighborhood, about a 10-minute drive from Culver City; downtown Los Angeles is 20 minutes away.
Size: 961 square feet
Price per square foot: $623
Indoors: This is a second-floor unit, with a footpath leading from the sidewalk to the front door, and leafy trees in the yard. Beyond the front door, stairs lead to the main hallway; at the top of the landing is a doorway to the living room.
The living space is sunny, with windows facing some of the complex’s treetops and refinished hardwood floors that continue into a windowed dining room.
