Here is a great web site where you'll find lots of info about this charming complex, built in the early 1940's; http://villagegreenla.net/history.html.
The HOA for this short sale is $404.69 and this includes maintenance of the impeccably groomed 68 acres, including a putting green, clubhouse, as well as a 24 hour security team. This nationally recognized historic property also offers activities such as outdoor jazz concerts in the summer, Easter Egg hunts, a fall hayride event, etc.
These units start at around $195k (and were priced at roughly $300,000 during the height of the market). The 1940's vibe gives the entire area a charming retro feeling once you enter the grounds. Most of the units maintain the original architectural details, including the 'milk man bottle shelf!' The residents are a loyal bunch, but they beg me, as their realtor, not to tell 'too many' people about it...as they don't want it to change!
Here is a published quote from a long term resident, "The apartments are well designed and built with quality, with lots of closet space and windows. Many units feature wood burning fireplaces, large balconies, and every unit comes with a large enclosed patio and a single car garage. Guest parking is plentiful. Visitors always comment on the beautiful mature trees in this urban forest, and the amazing sense of serenity and quiet in the midst of a bustling city. It feels nothing like the rest of Los Angeles, or anywhere else for that matter! It was designed to foster a sense of community, and that feeling still exists. It really is an oasis of calm and beauty, and we are all passionate about living here."
This is a charming area, with very well priced units. Definitely check these out!
