In Los Angeles, it seems that when people think about condos, they think about West Hollywood, the Westside or maybe Downtown where there is a large concentration of lofts. If you do consider yourself an East Sider, but feel like you’re more suited to condo living, never fear! There is a thriving condo market in Los Feliz and Silver Lake that tends to fly under the radar. I’ve written before about the pros and cons of single-family homes vs. condos, and there are a lot of well-priced homes in the Silver Lake/Los Feliz area. But not everyone wants the responsibility that comes with maintaining a house. That’s where condos come in. Check out some of what these areas have to offer!

1701 Clinton St.
2br/1ba in 843 sq. ft.
Located in the Lago Vista complex in Echo Park with panoramic views of the lake, the mountains and the city. Super cool building designed by architect Allyn E. Morris, this two-level unit needs work, but I’ve seen some amazingly redone units in there, and this top-floor diamond in the rough could be among the best with the right touch! Open kitchen and living area with balcony, plus pool.
