A rarely available corner townhome in Walter C. King’s landmark Chateau Beachwood is currently up for grabs.
Designed in 1937, the 10-unit French Normandy-style complex is rumored to be built by Warner Brothers to house their female starlets. Previous residents are said to have included Marilyn Monroe (believed to have lived in this same unit), Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Anne Heche, and Madonna.
2203 N. Beachwood opens to 1,200 square feet of light-filled space holding two bedrooms and one and a half baths. From the street to the interior, well-preserved period details of Hollywood’s bygone era include high ceilings, “wedding cake” relief plasterwork, the original primary bathroom, strip-oak hardwood floors, oversized casement windows, magnesite stairs, original art deco balustrade, and a magnificent turreted exterior.
Listed with Peter Lavin & Alastair Duncan, the townhouse is asking $895,000 with HOA dues of $400 per month.
