While they may be nice to look at, we can't help but feel a tad disappointed when we learn that a listing has a fireplace that is merely decorative. (Especially if it's a faux fireplace that was never intended to have anything burn in it--what's the sense in choosing that over, say, a built-in bookcase?) Happily, the description for this 1930s townhouse now available for lease in Mid-Wilshire contains no such letdown. In addition to a working fireplace, the two-story unit features three bedrooms, one and a half baths, living room, formal dining room, a circular built-in breakfast nook, vintage tile, hardwood floors, a dishwasher, a laundry room with washer/dryer hookups, a built-in vanity, and a detached one-car garage. Monthly rent for the pet-friendly townhouse is $2,495.
