Located just off the Sunset Strip, the Spanish Colonial Revival-condo complex called The Andalusia is considered an “elaborate and successful” example of Los Angeles’ courtyard residences.
Built in 1926 and designed by architects Arthur Zwebell and Nina Wilcox Zwebell, the Andalusia is easily identified by its pretty, decorative teal and white garage doors. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003, and now one of its magnificent units has come up for sale with a listing price of $1.65 million.
Noteworthy features include a grand and ornate fireplace, wood beamed ceilings, and arched entryways. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, but the charming tile work there and in the bathrooms appears to be original.
The condo measures 1,423 square feet and holds two bathrooms and three bedrooms, including a master suite with a Juliet balcony that overlooks the property’s courtyard. The courtyard is beset with brick pavers, an original tiled fountain, and lush landscaping. (There used to be a swimming pool in the rear of the courtyard, but, alas, it was removed in the 1990s.)
