For mid-century glamour, this condo is about the tops (cheesy staging aside)–not only is it in the fabulous Wilshire Terrace building (built in 1958 and designed by Victor Gruen and Associates), but it also belonged to former actress Audrey Wilder and director Billy Wilder, who made some of the greatest LA movies of all time (Sunset Boulevard, Double Indemnity) and some of the greatest romantic comedies (Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, Sabrina). Audrey died last year and now their long-time apartment is up for sale. It has two bedrooms, four bathrooms, “large entertaining spaces, high ceilings, fantastic sunlight, beautiful city, mountain and ocean views (on a clear day),” a kosher kitchen, a den, an “enormous” master with dressing area, and built-ins. The building has a valet, pool and spa, gym, and hair salon, and is notoriously one of the few co-ops in town–purchases must be all-cash and approved by the board. Asking price is $1.049 million with monthly HOA dues of $2,812. · 10375 WILSHIRE Unit 12FSP [Redfin] · How the 1958 Wilshire Terrace Building Got Its SoCal Glamor [Curbed LA]
