Just in time for the City Planning Commission's vote on an anti-mansionization ordinance for the Beverly Grove neighborhood, this fine specimen hits the market. It looks like just the thing neighborhood activists are trying to prevent, though since no square footage is given, we can't be absolutely sure. Taking the place of an (admittedly unlovely) 1927 house, this typically boxy number--or "modern, cutting edge and rearranged design with retro reclaimed wood accents," depending on your perspective--has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Like so many of the new houses in this area, there's an openish floor plan, loggia, small pool and spa, a nice array of balconies, and name-brand kitchen. It also seems to have kinda low ceilings upstairs, but maybe that's just the pictures playing tricks. It's on the market for $2.799 million.
