Per the Listing: "Penthouse in Miramonte Terrace, one of LA's last remaining buildings from the 1920's and a piece of history. You will love the fountain courtyard, the hammock, and the two large storage rooms. The location of this top floor unit is possibly the most desirable in the complex; with no common walls, except for those below, and your own rooftop terrace above, you will truly enjoy the privacy here. Views of Downtown LA, Hollywood Hills, and evening city lights are enough to put pen to paper. Inside this home you will find a perfect balance of vintage and modern. Hardwood floors throughout the unit. The master bedroom with 100% wool Godfrey Hirst carpet and newly remodeled bathroom. The master also has a separate entrance with a bonus area that has served as an office and now a nursery for the changing needs of the current owners. The chef's kitchen was remodeled this year and windows were repaired and restored in 2014. This penthouse is truly a rare offering and not to be missed."
As the numerous framed "Stuff White People Like" posters and prints subtly hint, this unit is the residence of Christian Lander, the writer who turned the gentle mockery of a certain demographic into a cottage industry. In 2011, Lander's wife, Jess, gave the home decor blog PopSugar a tour of the condo, which you can view here, should you care to. According to public data, the couple purchased the unit in 2010 for $430,000.
