The minute you enter the enchanting courtyard of the recognizable pink El Cordova condos you are transported to a 1930's movie set. In fact, you might recognize this space because it was the backdrop for the movie La La Land. The quintessential Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in the courtyard carries through to this charming one bedroom, one bathroom condo, an upstairs corner unit at the rear of the complex. A neutral color palette and abundant natural light create an inviting and peaceful living space. Exposed wood beams, wood floors, decorative tile, and arched doorways are a few of the fantastic features this home has to offer. An alcove off the living room has built-in drawers and added shelving, making it perfect for a home office or reading room. Spanish tile floors, decorative tile counters, and a classic old stove add to the vintage appeal of the kitchen. A quaint breakfast nook is a cozy spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The large bedroom is a serene, welcoming space and with both sets of windows open, you can enjoy cool ocean breezes. The bathroom has all the vintage character you would expect from a property that has been featured in such books as Long Beach Architecture, and Red Tile Style: America's Spanish Revival Architecture, among others. Laundry facilities are located outside the kitchen door, one flight down and there’s a subterranean storage area. Formerly known as Rose Towers, this lovely condo complex is located in the heart of Alamitos Beach, just blocks from the beach and 4th Street Retro Row and convenient to East Village Arts District, Belmont Heights, and Belmont Shore. Along with the historic charm of El Cordova comes an opportunity to save money on property taxes through the Mills Act. Units in this coveted complex rarely come on the market so don’t miss out on this gem.
