Today's Curbed mention of the Craigslist post for a rare townhouse apartment opening at WeHo's fabled Four Gables building, reminded me that there were a couple of even more enticing listings a few days ago for apartments in the fabu La Fontaine building, just a couple of blocks east on Franklin Avenue. (The building's actual address is on Crescent Heights Blvd.)
La Fontaine is also a Leland Bryant building, although in a different, turretless and more severe French Renaissance idiom. Both apartments—a 2 bedroom and a 3-bedroom—were listed at $4500 per month.
There are no interior shots of the 3-bedroom, but the 2-bedroom has a double-height living room and an oeil-de-boeuf off the dining room.
I'm not one to swoon at celebrity, but for those who relish such info former tenants of the building reportedly include Bette Midler, Steve Martin, Cheryl Crowe and Dane Cook.
I'm not sure these apartments are still available, but if I had that kind of dough I'd be on the phone first thing in the morning to find out.
