These Are The Tiniest Condos You Can Buy In L.A. Right Now
While tiny houses might be all the rage among people looking to downsize their lives, it's hard to find a place to put a tiny house in a dense urban environment like Los Angeles. However, you can buy a tiny condo.Neighborhoodx has compiled the smallest apartments up for grabs in Los Angeles this month, and it seems as though their top 10 consists mostly of condos that are under 500 square feet, but still over $200,000. Let's take a look, shall we?
The most wee apartment is in Westwood, and it's one you can only acquire if you can get an existing condo owner to snap it up for you. It's a rose-colored maid's room with a bathroom, coming in at 230 square feet. It will also cost that condo owner $225,000 a year.
Then there's this 352 square foot condo in Westwood for $300,000. Sure, it's tiny, but it has a teal stove and the building has all sorts of amenities, including a pool, gym and basketball court.
This Glendale condo is only 439 square feet and will cost you $217,653, but it's got a funky color wall. It would not be fun to be hungover here, but at least you don't have to decorate. This is also the cheapest condo on the list.
The most expensive is a place in Playa del Rey where $385,000 will net you 384 square feet and an attached one-car garage. It seems a little cramped and the kitchen is very narrow, but you can walk to the beach, so you might as well ditch your car and turn the garage into an art/yoga studio.Other items on the list include a quite fetching 449 square foot condo at Franklin and LaBrea for $315,000 and a 358 square foot condo in Woodland Hills for $219,900 that has a very nice pool.
