Mid-Century on Melrose
Mad Men building with modern updates, at 1740 Melrose Ave, #802. This 3 bedroom, 1.75 bath penthouse just listed at $449,900 features 180 degree city, sound & mountain views seen through floor-ceiling windows from all major rooms. Even more sun shines in through skylights to combat our dreary days.
Upgrades have been made, but I would take this one back in time and make the most of original ’60s detailing around the wood-burning fireplace and in the massive sun room/deck that runs the length of the unit. No tiny bedrooms here – especially the oversized master with generous en suite bathroom. Matt hates the wrought iron railings, but I think there’s plenty of potential for this one to be a retro knockout.
