If we were a fresh-faced kid who'd just moved to town in pursuit of the Hollywood dream, we'd want to live at Le Trianon. Commissioned in 1928 by Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks and designed by the illustrious and prolific Leland Bryant, the French chateau-style complex and its neon sign were declared historic-cultural monuments in 1995. Apartments in the restored six-story complex, located on North Serrano Avenue between Hollywood and Franklin, don't come on the market all that often, but today on Craigslist, we spotted a posting for an available share in one of the building's two-bedroom units. Up for grabs is "a large unfurnished bedroom with 11 1/2 ft. high ceilings, hardwood floors, 2 large French windows, 2 large closets and lots of light and cross breezes." Per the listing, "the architectural perks of the apartment include but [are] not limited to: high ceiling, gothic archways, moldings, hardwood floor, original 1920’s mosaic tiles, fireplace." The future roommate will share the kitchen, living room, dining room, and a "pristine" bathroom. Monthly rent is $875, including utilities and wi-fi.
