The West Hollywood real estate market seems to surprise a lot of people that I speak to. Some prospective buyers are surprised at how high prices can go, some at just how little you can get into the market for. Whether you’re looking for a high-end, totally done four-bedroom house or a small condo that won’t break the bank—but still right in the heart of WeHo—there’s something for everyone on the market right now. Prices are still great, interest rates are still low and the inventory is there. Right now there are 45 single-family homes for sale in West Hollywood, with an average price of $1,094,000. There are also 174 condominiums, with an average list price of about $570,000. Here are a few prime examples of the variety of properties on the market now.
346 Westbourne Drive
This one’s a beauty! One-of-a-kind, meticulously remodeled mini-compound with main house, guest house with kitchen and bath and a second-story guest apartment with kitchen, bath and laundry in a private, South of Melrose cul-de-sac street. It has a beautiful pool and is perfectly situated behind private hedges with great light and groomed grounds with private front and backyard play areas. Both beautiful guest apartments are rentable, and the lower guest house opens as a large pool house. Perfect for a family or those seeking great spaces for guests.
8949 Rosewood Ave.
Beautifully remodeled “designer-done” Spanish home featuring two bedrooms, two baths and a separate den. This one has a stunning kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, Viking appliances and a wine cooler—and who doesn’t need one of those! Beautiful hardwood floors, as well as a private backyard, and for those who really value their privacy, the front yard is hedged and gated. Close to all the best shops, bars and restaurants too!
8901 Rosewood Ave.
Another sweet little casa on Rosewood. This one has been published in Better Homes and Gardens and is really a special, serene little house. Dark walnut floors and a remodeled, open kitchen that opens to a peaceful, private backyard. Barrel-vaulted ceilings and a large picture window in the living room that looks out to a lovely, hedged front yard. Detached guesthouse in the back, and a short walk to all the best shops and restaurants on Robertson, Beverly and Melrose.
949 Kings Road, PH1
Who doesn’t love a penthouse view? This top-floor unit on Kings Road comes with a whopping 1,400-square-foot private terrace that wraps around the unit with doors opening from every room, offering jetliner views from all directions. Better yet, if you really like it quiet, this is the one for you, as it has no common walls. Remodeled to perfection with new kitchen and bathrooms. Recessed lighting, fireplace, new hardwood floors—the works!
970 Palm Ave. #116
Listen, you don’t have to be a big baller to set up shop in West Hollywood. This adorable little abode on Palm Avenue puts you smack dab in the middle of Boystown. This baby gets lots of light, has newly redone bamboo flooring, virtually unused appliances and has a great pool for working on your tan. Central air and one parking space—this is the one!
