Ray Kappe Architectural Multi-Unit Building

Ray Kappe FAIA – 1958 – The work of Kappe is considered by some to be an extension of the earlier SoCal modern architects like Wright, Neutra & Schindler. This modernist complex was built not long after Kappe gained hands on experience as a draftsman for Eichler Homes and eventually working under renowned architect Carl Maston. The one of a kind apartment complex exhibits a classic mid-century modern aesthetic. Located at the base of the red-hot market in Baldwin Hills Estates, this eight-unit complex was built on a concrete block foundation and includes a secure entry from the alley. The spacious ground floor units feature 10ft high ceilings with their own private enclosed patios. Six of the eight total units have been updated with features such as new flooring, upgraded bathrooms, granite counter tops, and upgraded kitchens with premium fixtures/appliances.  Several of the units have fantastic views of Downtown Los Angeles and Beverly Hills from their private balconies.  The complex is made up of three separate structures located on a large hillside lot with a possibility to create an owner-unit on the property.  Four double-car enclosed garages are securely accessed by tenants through the alley.  Nearby Baldwin Hills is booming with new development and centrally located, making this property an excellent opportunity to benefit from the surrounding growth.
