The only condo in this week’s roundup, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit is located in West Hollywood’s romantic Hayworth Gardens, a Spanish-style complex built in 1929. The pad is filled with sweet vintage details, from the coved ceilings to the retro tile. Other features, per the listing, include views of the courtyard below and an en-suite bath and walk-in closet in the master. It comes with two parking spaces and an asking price of $775,000.

Up in Glassell Park is this midcentury home. It’s tiny—it measures just 856 square feet—but it appears larger thanks to pitched ceilings and lots of windows and sliding doors. Freshly remodeled, it boasts contemporary finishes, including engineered hardwood floors, quartz counters, and stainless steel appliances. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home sits on a 4,471-square-foot lot and is on the market for $779,000.

The pictures of this home are a little fuzzy, but the location in one of LA’s best neighborhoods, Leimert Park, and the size of the lot, 7,341 square feet, are clear draws. The traditional home holds two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,256 square feet, and features include a fireplace, bay window, and arched entryways. The price tag? $785,000.
