Spectacular residence in Koreatown’s Chateau Chaumont building

One of the most coveted residences in Koreatown’s Chateau Chaumont building is up for grabs.

Designed by Kenneth Macdonald Jr., the architect of Downtown’s Spring Street Arcade Building and Glendale’s Southern Pacific Station, the 1928 historic building is the best French Chateau-style condo complex to line the streets of Koreatown. The Mills Act-approved structure stands elegantly at 855 S. Serrano Ave. Restored in 2006, the 15-unit complex retains its hotel-style lobby, controlled access, secure parking, and many original details.

Like Cliff Fong and photographer Johnathan Ducrest’s former residences, this three-bedroom home offers an updated take on its original charm. A tad under 2,400 square feet, broad picture windows line the interior, letting in tons of natural light. Features include hardwood floors throughout, a bygone-era-style French plaster mantle surrounds the faux fireplace in the living, and coved ceilings. Two of the three bedrooms are ensuite, with one of the rooms offering a spacious balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee.

When you feel like stepping out for a little entertainment or a bite to eat, you’re near the Wiltern and The Line, which holds the “Commissary, a sun-soaked, greenhouse-inspired restaurant famous for its weekend brunch buffet (shout-out to the prime rib carving station); Pot Lobby Bar for happy hour Moscow mules and old-fashioneds; and Break Room 86 for karaoke and dancing.”

It is currently listed for $985,000 with monthly HOA dues of $547.
