Owned by actor/director Vincent Gallo since 2009 (when he bought it for $2.34 million), the four-story, 4,300 square foot penthouse in downtown LA’s historic Biscuit Lofts is now back on the market. After briefly listing it for $3 million last year, Gallo relisted it last month with the help of Keller Williams agent Frank Bruno for $2.599 million, a price tag amply justified by the property’s incredible design, both inside and out.
Judging by the layout and interior, the fact that Nicolas Cage once lived here isn’t even the biggest selling point! The penthouse has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and boasts an in-unit elevator, pristine stainless steel appliances, industrial-size windows set in sandblasted brick walls, gorgeous maple wood floors, floating staircases, soaring ceilings and more. The multiple levels and living spaces lend this loft a truly open, airy feel.
And the fun doesn’t stop there–there are 3 incredible outdoor spaces from which to choose: a living/screening area, a private balcony off the master, and a rooftop deck for a total of 3,100 square feet of usable outdoor living space. And as if those weren’t tempting enough, the breathtaking 360-degree view of Los Angeles–from downtown to the mountains–is pretty much the icing on the cake.
And then there are the perks. HOA fees are $874 per month and include three parking spaces as well as building amenties like doorman services, a saltwater pool, barbecues, a firepit, and a gym. Since the building is a registered historic-cultural landmark, property taxes are greatly reduced. And for the foodies among us, The Biscuit Lofts are located directly above what is arguably one of downtown’s best French restaurants, Church & State.
