The historic and verdant Village Green garden apartment complex in Baldwin Hills offers more than 40 acres of green space, and this three-bedroom condo unit looks directly out onto some of that acreage.
The emerald green backdrop appears out the windows of the living room, bedrooms, and dining area.
Inside, the residence features comely parquet floors, paned casement windows, a brick fireplace, a retro kitchen, and two outdoor spaces—a front porch and a spacious, enclosed back patio. The dwelling’s two bathrooms appear to be original, and like the rest of the home, meticulously maintained. Plus, having two stories means you are your own upstairs neighbor—eliminating an oft-repeated reservation about condo living.
Built in 1942 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Village Green is eligible for tax breaks under the Mills Act, though the condo buyer would have to do the work to get them.
Located at 5471 Village Green, the nearly 1,600-square-foot condominium is well-located for getting to work on the Westside, in the South Bay, or in Downtown. It’s listed for $799,000. plus monthly HOA fees of $519, with Stephen Shiu of BRC Advisors.
