We explored several neighborhoods in Los Angeles, but in the end, B.K., a Dean of College Counseling and English Instruction, was won over by a contemporary townhouse in West Hollywood.
Measuring 1,700 square feet, the two-bedroom home holds a penthouse position in a condo collection located at 7133 Hawthorn Ave. Featuring high ceilings and natural light, it is the only layout of its kind offering a unique three-story floor plan that cleverly separates public and private spaces, along with the entire north-facing side of the home with no shared walls.
The most frequented entrance (each level has its own entry/exit) opens to a hallway with a powder room to your left and a flight of stairs heading up to the main bedroom featuring a deck looking out to surrounding hillside views and multiple closets where B.K. can’t wait to display his 200+ collection of sneakers. Back down the flight of stairs, you walk through a hallway leading to an open kitchen/living/dining space with wall space for his book collection and big screen T.V. Below is the guest room where he plans to hold Zoom calls and where family and friends can hang for the night.
Best of all, the location is on a quiet street between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard.
