Another condo in Hollywood’s venerable El Cabrillo has come up for sale.

Built in 1928 to accommodate newly arrived showbiz folk, the nationally landmarked Spanish Andalusian-style complex was the penultimate courtyard apartment building erected by self-taught husband-and-wife team Arthur and Nina Zwebell before the Great Depression put a premature end to their career.

Located on the corner of Franklin and Grace avenues, the two-story complex contains 10 units. The latest to hit the market is a two-bedroom, one-bath located on the upper level. Character details include beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, archways, a beehive fireplace, wrought-iron sconces, French doors, casement windows, and two balconies. Updates include an in-unit washer and dryer and dual pane glass.

Asking price for the historic unit, which comes with Mills Act tax benefits but no dedicated parking, is $995,000, while monthly HOA dues are $468. Marisa Tranquilli of Keller Williams holds the listing.

Owned by designer Joshua Cain, the unit is housed in the complex’s upper level.
French doors in the master bedroom open to a private balcony.
The kitchen has been updated with modern appliances, including a washer and dryer.
The bathroom has also been updated.
The second bedroom features built-in bookshelves.
The historic complex’s courtyard centers around an Andalusian-style fountain.
