Though its glory days may be long behind it, its gleam tarnished by the grubbiness of the surrounding neighborhood, we'll always have a soft spot for Hollywood's Le Trianon. Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #616, the French-Norman style complex was designed in 1928 by Leland Bryant. According to census records, the architect, who specialized in deluxe apartment buildings such as West Hollywood's Colonial House and Granville Towers, was himself a resident of Le Trianon. Last sold in 2004, the turreted chateau, located on North Serrano Ave between Hollywood Blvd and Franklin Ave, is once again up for grabs. Per the listing, "The property consists of a six-story tower and small three-story wing overlooking a large landscaped courtyard. This property's roof has been replaced by the seller at a cost of approximaetly $400,000. Below the tower lays a subterranean garage for 20 cars. The asset could benefit from experienced management and operational stability. These units boast of hardwood floors and impressive city views. There is also an amazing 3bed 3 bath penthouse unit that can potentially be ideal for an owner-user." The 55-bedroom complex, which last changed hands for $5.3 million, is now asking $6.8 million.
