LIVE/WORK LOFT IN LEGENDARY CHEROKEE STUDIOS
It’s a brave new world; one in which living and working at home has become the norm. But is it always legal in multi-family or condominium settings? Here, at the iconic Lofts @ Cherokee Studios, it is a way of life! This top-floor, live/work 1,232 sq.ft. 2BD/2.5BA loft has a clean, modern aesthetic, an open floor plan, and a private balcony with retractable metal screens that can be opened for amazing city views—including DTLA’s skyline—or closed for ultimate privacy. There is also a large storage closet on the unit’s balcony.
The loft’s living and dining areas gleam with natural light from both ends of the unit. The home’s wide plank FSC wood floors show plenty of grain for that high-design look. The space is pre-wired for Surround Sound. There is a powder room here for ease and convenience (2.5BA’s total in the unit).
The loft’s kitchen has stainless steel appliances including a Bertazzoni range, Bosch dishwasher and refrigerator, built-in microwave, and range hood. There is ample storage in its FSC custom upper and lower cabinets, as well as additional pantry space. Expansive, glimmering Caesarstone counters make kitchen prep simple. A Herringbone-patterned tile backsplash accents the space.
The residence’s master bedroom is en-suite; its master bathroom has dual eco-luxury Hansgrohe water efficient fixtures, dueling Duravit sinks, Toto dual flush commode, and a tub/shower combination (with seamless glass enclosure).
The live/work loft’s guest bedroom (both bedrooms are downstairs from the living areas) could be used as an office, gym, or recording studio. The guest bathroom includes a step-in shower (with frameless glass enclosure) and a floating sink cabinet.
Other features of #11 include: In-unit stackable LG washer/dryer. 2 tandem underground parking spaces are included. Dedicated tankless water heater.
The building’s common roof deck (there are 12 units @ Cherokee Lofts) offers breathtaking 360-degree views of the Hollywood Hills, the Griffith Observatory, and the Pacific’s waves. The building was designed by Pugh+Scarpa in 2011 with a clear intention to pay homage to the original structure which housed the legendary Cherokee Recording Studios. Notables who recorded on-site include Bowie, Elvis, Jackson, Hendrix, Sinatra, and Petty. Today, it is a LEED Platinum Certified building (a rarity in live/work construction), as well as an architectural award-winning mixed-use residence.
The loft is conveniently located close to the Melrose Shopping District and The Farmer’s Market/Grove. Whole Foods is a hop away at Santa Monica and Fairfax.
