Charming Mt. Washington Retreat

Is this too good to be true? A character-filled ground floor unit in the coveted Mt. Washington enclave that feels more like a home than anything else out there. And it IS better than anything else out there: a one-bedroom on paper, but there is also a separate den (no closet) which could be a perfect 2nd bedroom for guests, or for your home hobbies and projects. And then – in addition to all this – there is a creative detached room (think: art, home gym or office) with terra cotta flooring, crisp white walls and a glass door that opens to your own private fully enclosed back yard, adorned with mature landscaping and drought-tolerant greenery, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining. Yes, you read that right: a private gated yard, just for you. Recently renovated, the kitchen features floating shelves, butcher block counters and organic white tile and brand new white appliances, including a dishwasher! Updates include renovated bath, new dual-pane windows, and bamboo floors. Wait, there’s more: also included is a private laundry room with side-by-side washer/dryer and utility sink. This gated Spanish 2-unit intimate community features a common landscaped front yard and low HOAs. A must see!

The Rental Girl ( is a full service Real Estate brokerage specializing in residential leasing and sales. We have been serving renters and landlords since 2004. We work with thousands of Los Angeles renters each year, and many of these renters are qualified to buy, but can’t afford or find a home in a neighborhood they want to live. In 2016, a client of ours introduced us to TIC ownership and we saw immediately how many renters and entry level buyers in LA could benefit from a TIC market here. We met with Sterling Bank, who was working actively to pioneer a TIC market in LA, and other San Francisco vendors. And so began our research on TICs. Since then, we have helped bring many TIC units to the market, and we have many new TIC communities coming soon. With every new TIC building that hits the market, more renters, landlords and realtors are discovering TIC sales and the TIC movement is growing rapidly. We love to share our accumulated knowledge, and support our real estate colleagues, landlords and renters and the TIC community.
