1200 N Sweetzer: 10 Superb, Stylish Condos in West Hollywood

1200 N SweetzerUnits at 1200 N Sweetzer Avenue, a cool, styling, very exciting 10-unit building, have just gone on sale at the corner of Norton and Sweetzer Avenues in West Hollywood. Among brokers and bloggers, the building is getting a lot of buzz -- most of it excellent. This is a pedigreed project: the architect, Aleks Istanbullu,also designed the Biscuit Lofts in the Arts District Downtown.

1200 N SweetzerThese units range in price from $799,000 for two 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath ground floor units (approx 1,250 sq ft) to $1,449,000 for the 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath penthouse (1,802 sq ft) with a 782 sq ft rooftop deck.

1200 N SweetzerThis is excellent, contemporary design. High ceilings. Abundant natural light. Use of eco-friendly materials. Plus some of the greatest roofdecks within blocks.

1200 N SweetzerThe location between La Cienega and Crescent Heights, Fountain and Santa Monica Boulevard can’t be beat. O-Bar, Griddle Cafe, Joey’s CafĂ©, Barney's Beanery, Hugo’s, Trader Joe’s, Gelsons, Palihouse, Chateau Marmont, Greenblatt’s Deli, Standard Hotel, Sunset Tower Hotel and Equinox Fitness are all steps away.

1200 N SweetzerBathroom finishes include Kohler fixtures, Caesarstone, and custom wooden cabinetry.

1200 N SweetzerWindows are large, giving excellent views from some units of the Sunset Strip, the Hills, and the Los Angeles basin.

1200 N SweetzerThe ceilings are high -- you won't feel cramped around here.

1200 N SweetzerKitchens feature Jenn-Air or Kitchen Aid refrigerators, Bertazzoni ranges and hoods, and Bosch dishwashers.

1200 N SweetzerHardwood floors are stained an attractive cherry color. Even the lower floor units are appealing.

The only catch may be the price: units range from $629/sq ft (largest ground-floor unit) to $804/sq ft (front penthouse). This is leagues above the $/sq ft of recently sold units (of slightly less stature) in West Hollywood. Now it's time for the buyers to decide what they think about these units. In this writer's opinion, kudos should be extended to the team that brought this excellent project to market.
