The living and dining rooms of many vintage Eastside homes and apartments are often separated by a built-in book cases or a simple archway. But the divider in this Angeleno Heights apartment is relatively unique because the curved archway swoops down to the floor and then curls up before ending in pedestals on either side of the room. Has anyone seen this before?
Robin Coles, property manager for Hollywood Hills Apartments, which is renovating the apartment building at the corner of East Edgeware Road and Calumet Avenue, said the plaster archway is apparently original but only one unit – on the ground floor – in the 1924 building has such a divider Coles said the new owners never considered eliminating the curvaceous room divider. “We want to keep it original as we can,” Coles said.
The renovation of the one-bedroom apartment is expected to be completed by the New Year, when it will come up for rent for $1,595 a month.
