Located at 610 S. Van Ness Ave., Windsor Row intersects the bustling and hip Korea-town neighborhood with the leafy residential streets of Windsor Square and nearby Hancock Park.

WINDSOR ROW was designed by Electric Bowery Architects.

Replacing a run-down house and crumbling parking lot full of abandoned vehicles, the new townhouse project is made up of two facing contemporary four-story structures designed with six townhomes on each side, centered on a gated courtyard shared by residents that includes a stream that meanders along fresh landscaping. Each townhome includes a direct entrance to a work-from-home office suite, an outdoor patio, roof deck and private two-car garage.

FULL HEIGHT sliding glass doors off the living room provide an indoor-outdoor space.

Dubbed as a refined modern retreat among the urban landscape of Los Angeles, Windsor Row aims to redefine what a community of architectural condominiums can look like.

“It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before,” said agent Michele Sanchez as she revealed to us last month the master suite complete with a walk-through closet, spa-like bath and an enclosed terrace. “The aesthetic is very unique in that it is both modern and warm.”

KITCHENS include a Thermador appliance package, stainless steel range, built-in wine fridge and a leathered Quartzite kitchen island.

On the main level of each home, an open floor plan combines a great room and a dining room with high ceilings, a central fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors. A modern kitchen comes equipped with custom cabinetry, a Thermador appliance package and a large kitchen island made of leathered quartzite.

Electric Bowery Architects

The team behind the project’s design is Venice-based Electric Bowery Architects, known locally for its work on the Neuehouse building and Paley restaurant at the former CBS Headquarters.

MASTER SUITES include walk-in closets, spa-like baths and private terraces.

“Electric Bowery does some really cool stuff, but I love that they’re a homegrown, Los Angeles-based firm, so you know that you’re getting an architect that understands SoCal living and what people are looking for,” said listing broker Joshua Gaunya on the building’s design pedigree.

In fact, Electric Bowery had input and influence on all of the finishes in the townhomes, down to the faucets, door hardware and counter selection. “They didn’t just deliver the plans and leave it to the contractor. Everything was approved by them,” said Gaunya. “The architect has pushed the envelope to create row houses with a modern aesthetic that will attract a diverse mix of homeowners that include families, small business owners and even those looking for a place that they can lock and leave.”

Like a single family home

MASTER BATHS include Brizo faucets and Kohler sinks, separate toilet rooms and freestanding soaking tubs.

According to Gaunya, living in a high-quality townhome like those of Windsor Row is more like living in a single-family home than a traditional condo project. “You don’t have the interior hallways, and you have direct access to your home via the front and the garage. There’s no one above or below you, so you don’t have to worry about noise.

“In some ways, Windsor Row has an east coast vibe in that it resembles brownstone and row house projects often found in Boston or New York City,” Gaunya adds.

A newly-built single-family home in Los Angeles, that is both modern and well-designed, can sell for more than $3 million, maybe much more, depending upon the neighborhood, explained the Deasy Penner Podley team. Windsor Row is an opportunity for people who can’t afford those homes to still get into contemporary new construction in a highly desired neighborhood. Prices start at $1.88 million.
