Architect Max Maltzman mastered a myriad of building styles, from the Art Deco-influenced Charmont Apartments in Santa Monica to the Spanish Colonial Revival Sam Sharpe triplex in Los Feliz.

The Majorca in Hancock Park more closely resembles his design of Hotel Sahara on the Las Vegas Strip, a modern “jewel” that opened eight years earlier. Built in 1960, The Majorca is a a boxy five-story building at 531 North Rossmore that holds 28 condos screened partially behind a breeze block grill. One of those units, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, has come up for sale.

In its 1,547 square feet, the condo has oak floors, lots of natural light, recessed lighting, and a semi-open floor plan with a living room that ties into a dining room. Those spaces feature a brick wall, floor-to-ceiling bookshelf, and sliding doors that open to a concrete balcony with views of the Wilshire Country Club and the glamorous El Royale.

Unit No. 406 has a washer and dryer and comes with two garage parking spaces. It’s listed with Derek Lester and Joe Reichling at Compass, with an asking price of $1.095 million and monthly HOA fees of $508.

Oak floors extend into the kitchen, which is equipped with quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances.
There’s space for a breakfast nook.
Both bedrooms are splashed with natural light.
Both bedrooms also feature pretty views of treetops and hills.
Both bathrooms have been updated with rain showers and stone counters.
The balcony can be accessed from the living room and kitchen.
