Given the extent to which our fair metropolis's landscape is dominated by the various European Revival, Craftsman, Mid-Century Modern, Modern McMansion, and Cheapo Home Depot Flip architectural styles, it's always a refreshing change of pace to see one of Los Angeles's less-common Streamline Modernes pop up on the market. This particular specimen is located on South San Vicente Boulevard in Beverly Grove, about a block east of Lawry's Prime Rib. We're guessing that the 1936 structure was originally a multi-family dwelling, seeing as it's got a fireplace, but at some point it was converted to commercial use. Per the listing description, the 2,700-square-foot building currently houses "seven office suites; each with its own bath; separate entrances; and access to an interior courtyard and private garages." Along with the brick fireplace, other nice details include transom windows, crown molding, built-ins, and French doors. Sited on a 4,510-square-foot lot, it's asking $1.585 million.
