In news that should come as no surprise, the one-bedroom condo in the Arthur and Nina Zwebell-designed courtyard complex the Andalusia that hit the market a couple of weeks ago is now under contract. But happily, here comes another Zwebell unit to swoon over, this one in Hollywood’s enchanting El Cabrillo.

Built in 1928, the nationally landmarked Spanish Colonial complex on the corner of Franklin and Grace Avenues differs from the other Zwebell courts in that it was constructed from concrete block instead of wood and stucco, to mimic an adobe effect. The complex has 10 units; the one up for grabs is a two-story townhouse measuring 1,350 square feet.

Along with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it features newly refinished hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, two fireplaces, elegant wrought iron work, painted tile, French doors, casement windows, period sconces, multiple balconies, and private patio and basement space.

Asking price for the historic unit, which comes with Mills Act tax benefits and one garaged parking spot, is $1.3 million, while monthly HOA dues are $574. Marisa Tranquilli of Keller Williams holds the listing.

Though just a few steps from Franklin Avenue, El Cabrillo’s courtyard feels worlds away.
