Described by the venerable Courtyard Housing in Los Angeles as "one of the most elegant of the courts," Hancock Park's Il Borghese was designed in 1929 by architect Charles Gault. The Mediterranean-style building also plays a prominent role in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive as the home of fresh-faced ingenue Betty Elms's Aunt Ruth. Located on N. Sycamore Avenue between Rosewood and Oakwood, the condominium complex contains 22 units, one of which has just hit the market. Per the listing, the courtyard-level unit measures 746 square feet and has one bedroom, one bath, a step-down living room with decorative fireplace, French windows, elaborate crown molding, period tile, and hardwood floors. Building amenities include a controlled-access entry, a rooftop terrace, and garden courtyard with koi pond, fountain, and fireplace. Asking price is $550,000, while HOA fees are $334/month. Open house is scheduled for Sunday, May 8 between 2 and 5 p.m.
