Described in David Gebhard and Robert Winter's An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles as "exhuberant Streamline Moderne," Santa Monica's historic Voss Apartments were built in 1937. The 15-unit complex was owned by the same family for 75 years, but recently changed ownership. Perhaps coincidentally, a couple of apartments also recently became available; one, a studio, appears to have already been rented, but still up for grabs is a first-floor one-bedroom. Sadly, the Craigslist posting for the apartment is begrudging with both photos and details, saying only that the unit is "Bright, clean & quiet with southern exposure, dining room, hardwood floors with beautiful interior details like curved ceilings and wall niches." Monthly rent for the apartment, located two blocks south of Montana Avenue, is $2,395.
