For $599K, a groovy 2-bedroom condo in Beachwood Canyon

Minimal and bright

Tucked into Beachwood Canyon is this pastel midcentury condo building that dates to 1958, where a well-maintained two-bedroom unit just got a small price chop. Light-filled and minimal, the condo measures 964 square feet and features hardwood floors, a vintage kitchen, two tiled bathrooms and a balcony. There’s a communal pool and raised beds in a shared garden.

The new asking price is $599,000. That’s still pretty hefty, likely because of its great location in walking distance to the core of Hollywood and Franklin Village.

It was listed for even higher in May, at $610,000, after last selling in 2007 for $515,000.

A couple miles down the road from Topanga’s landmark Inn of the Seventh Ray, you’ll find this angular residence, which was built in 1976. Unlike most traditional A-frames, this one was blessed with a set of wings—guess you could call it a “Flying-A.”

Per the listing, the 1,882-square-foot house has three bedrooms and three updated baths. Interior features include high ceilings, double-pane windows offering stunning views, wood floors, stainless steel appliances, and a tankless water heater.

The 18,521-square-foot property also contains multiple decks and patios, a swimming pool with spa, and a detached guesthouse/studio.

UPDATE: Asking price is NOW $1.8 million.
