123 N Kings Road - Boutique Lofts Near the Boutiques

123 Kings Rd - View from StreetWithin walking distance of the Beverly Center, the Grove and all the excitement of Beverly Boulevard are the twelve new residences at 123 N Kings Road. Protected from the street by the de rigeur wooden-slatted fa├žade, these multi-level townhouse style condo units blend concrete, wood, glass and a heap of stairs into comfortable dwellings at the center of this high-profile shopping and dining district.

Updated September 4, 2010:  After disappearing for a long time, 123 N Kings Road is back on the market.  The project ran into financial difficulties is now in receivership (i.e., rather than the embattled developer or bank selling the project,  the court appoints a 3rd party to supervise the disposition of the condos) Bottom line: these excellent units are priced to sell at $579,000 - $799,000, a competitive $430/sq ft.  

It's difficult to comprehend that eighteen months ago, when the project debuted, the units were priced from $949,000 - $1,185,000.  This high-end Pugh + Scarpa design will satisfy modern aesthetes as well as well-heeled urbanites who want to be at this swanky crossroads (get your coffee at Kings Road Cafe just across the street.)

Entry to the units is off a central courtyard. On the ground level is an open kitchen-living area with ¾ bath and steps leading to a mezzanine office-sitting-area (in 8 of the units). Up another level is the bedroom and full bath. Up another flight of stairs is access to the rooftop deck. (Cancel your membership at the gym, you’ll do plenty of walking if you live here.)

The finishes are high-quality. The units give the air of clean simplicity, to be enhanced by the owners’ personal touches.

The rooftop deck, a great place for a gathering, is accessible from the units’ top floors and has excellent, unobstructed 360 degree views. Margaritas and martinis are sure to follow.

The bedrooms are in general large, and the ceilings are high (true throughout the units.)  The white wide-plank floors look very cool.  

One of the more spectacular features is the master bath.  Walk up a few steps and enter a loft-like space with dual sinks, floating cabinets, excellent tile and finishes.

The complex is presented by Abitar Development. Units come with two parking spaces. HOA costs are lower than most comparable complexes.
