A quintessential remnant of Old Hollywood, Grace Avenue’s charming El Cabrillo was designed in 1928 by formidable husband-and-wife team Arthur and Nina Zwebell for Cecil B. DeMille. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Spanish Colonial Revival condominium complex contains 10 units, one of which has just hit the market.
Measuring 770 square feet, the one-bedroom, one-bath unit’s vintage features include beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace with carved mantel, thick plaster walls, wrought-iron accents, built-in shelving, and casement windows looking out to the complex’s lovely courtyard fountain. Updates include central HVAC, Bosch kitchen appliances, and a stackable washer and dryer.
Asking price for the ground-level condo, which comes with one deeded garage parking spot, is $795,000, while monthly HOA fees are $424. Open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
