Condo of Angels in Andersonville


Have you ever had an adventure? A real adventure? Perhaps taking a job in another country or city? Leaving all your friends & fam to further your career or simply feel a change of pace is in order? Well we have two good friends that are taking this challenge. They are relocating to the "City of Angels" in the next month or so.

They are leaving behind an awesome 2 bedroom Andersonville condo with big closets, one bathroom (they took out tub and made
a walk-in shower). It's on the 3rd floor, east side of building. My fave things
about the place is the big sunny sunroom in front, and the big back
deck. They have six window boxes and with the southern exposure,
geraniums and herbs flourish. Included is all the deck
furniture and the gas grill. Washer and dryer in bathroom is a joy,
dishwasher and garbage disposal too, and a gas fireplace is low
maintainance and cozy!
The condo is in a 6 unit that they hope to rent by May 1st. They are asking a paltry $1,800 which includes heat and water, a parking spot in a garage, good easygoing neighbors, a fantastic location one block from Clark Street, but still pretty quiet street (Rascher Avenue) with lots of trees and grass.

What did I leave out here? They are swapping out Chicago for LA. Chicago's fun, but LA? The weather, people, architecture, Rodeo, Mann's, the Valley, the Ocean, VINTAGE shops, celebs...

I lived in LA a while back. A condo close to La Cienaga Blvd at the foot of the hills. Not too far from Santa Monica Blvd. Had a great pool & hot tub. Everybody has one. Hung out every day on Rodeo! Had coffee at Starbucks & would walk down to Louisa's & have lunch & wine on the house. Mostly I would just sit outside on the terrace & people watch.

Saw Mickey Rourke when he was going through his first "face-lift" boxing career? Or maybe he was doing a movie? Anywho he came into the restaurant around the lunch rush with red satin boxing trunks, red satin robe, white terry clothe towel on his head & boxing gloves. Yes, BOXING GLOVES! He sat down and tried to eat in his boxing gloves!! Poor thing. Did I mention he was shirtless?

The condo also boasts hardwood floors, bright sun light, high ceilings, everything will be spruced up for you like new & you couldn't enter into a lease with nicer people. So take a moment & think about having your own "Mickey Rouke"  adventure. Sorry, I take that back. That wasn't an adventure, that was a TRIP!

  1. oh, I love the art hanging above the couch... beautiful!

  2. My favorite is that "ART WALL." Cover an unexpected wall with art. It acts as an interesting dimension to an otherwise neglected space.
