Downtown Los Angeles Homes For Sale – Lofts with Private Outdoor Space Balconies and Terraces

The great outdoors can be difficult to reach when one is cooped up in a condo with no yard. A private outdoor space such as a balcony, patio or terrace can make a world of difference. #dtla #balcony

Nearly everyone can get cabin fever, irritability and listlessness from confinement, when they are stuck inside for too long. Many Downtowners are not willing to sacrifice a spot where they can easily step right outside their own door to get some fresh air and sunshine. Many have pets that don’t want to be shut inside all of the time also. A private balcony or terrace solves this problem. While every resident in DTLA has a walkable neighborhood to stroll, fetch coffee, food and entertainment, about 15% of Downtown condo units have a private outdoor space where the resident can sit and enjoy a piece of their own outdoor turf.

Here is a list of Downtown area lofts and condos for sale with private outdoor space such as balcony or terrace:

738 S Los Angeles St #302 Historic Core 810 sq ft $475,000 DETAILS
1111 S GRAND AVE #418 South Park 800 sq ft $599,000
