The Chateau Chaumont, designed by Kenneth Macdonald Jr., the architect of Downtown’s Spring Street Arcade Building and Glendale’s Southern Pacific Station, is the best French Chateau-style condo complex to line the streets of Koreatown.
Interior designers like Cliff Fong and other creatives are drawn to this 1928 building for its historic charm, architectural details, and natural light. Photos were taken when photographer Johnathan Ducrest put this residence on the market show off a thoughtful remodel. He returned the home to its former glory by updating the galley kitchen with new countertops, appliances, and a fresh coat of paint and gutted the bathroom, reports Curbed.
When Ducrest lived here, you entered this one-bedroom, one-bath condo measuring 1,200 square feet through a modest foyer painted jet black. Past the entrance is a light-filled living room featuring historic windows, millwork, moldings, hardwood floors, and a wood-burning fireplace.
Adjacent to the living room is a formal dining room leading to the galley kitchen with Bosch appliances, LG washer/dryer combo, quartz countertops, marble backsplash, and ample cabinets.
On the opposite end of the residence, there’s an oversized bedroom with ample storage and many built-ins. The bathroom is also on this end of the home and includes Hansgrohe hardware, Duravit fixtures, a built-in medicine cabinet with LED lighting, and a defogger. Additional features include designer light fixtures and custom California closets.
The home last sold in June 2017 for $650,000. Listed by Joel Kelner, the asking price is now $665,000 with HOA dues of $337 per month with the bonus of the building currently being considered for Mills Act status.
