Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I moved to LA from the Midwest in the mid 1990s and have called LA 'home' ever since. Since 2001, I have bought, renovated and rented out historic LA homes and enjoy making your visit to LA memorable and enjoyable. I live in another house in the same neighborhood so I'm a moment away should you need anything at all. I love this home and this neighborhood and work in the area. Outside of caring for this house, I'm a Digital Entertainment Marketing executive and part-time UCLA Instructor. I love this vibrant city and know it inside and out; and I look forward to having you as my guest.
Why the Owner Chose Mid-Wilshire, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
This property is a very special 1920's era duplex that captivated me with its charm, open layout, romantic balconies, wood floors, barrel ceilings and celebrity past. British glam-rock musician, Marc Bolan (T. Rex) lived in this home in the 1970s with his wife, Grammy nominated Gloria Jones - so this home has great vibes! She was the first singer to record the song, Tainted Love.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Completely renovated yet retains an old Hollywood glamour feel and is uniquely LA. Top quality 500 thread-count linens, down comforters, variety of down pillows to suit tastes, organic soaps, top quality beds.Full stocked kitchen designed for cooking.
