Natalie Cole’s Westwood Condo Comes on the Market (EXCLUSIVE)

The long-time, luxuriously appointed Los Angeles condominium of the late, great, R&B/pop chanteuse Natalie Cole has come up for sale with an asking price just shy of $3 million. Property records show the unforgettable nine-time Grammy winner, who died late last year of congestive heart failure at the age of 65, purchased the two-unit condo on the 10th floor of the 21-story Grand Westwood high-rise along the upmarket Wilshire Corridor in late 2003 for an unrecorded amount.

Details provided by listing agents Joe Babajian at Rodeo Realty and Michelle Ficarra at The Agency show the south- and west-facing corner condo measures almost 3,600 square feet with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Beige marble floors run throughout the L-shaped, open-plan main living area that’s plenty spacious enough to comfortably accommodate two separate lounge areas and a grand piano, plus a chandelier-lit dining area.

Glass sliders open to an oversized, covered terrace with panoramic city and mountain views, and a breakfast bar divides the dining area from the recently rehabbed kitchen. The celebrity-sized master suite is complete with a sitting area, glass sliders leading to a private balcony, a custom-fitted walk-in closet, and a plushly outfitted — if unfortunately completely carpeted — bathroom with a two-person jetted tub set into a raised platform.

The Grand Westwood, a Brutalist tower distinguished by its striking geometric façade, was built in 1980, and offers its well-heeled residents a staff that provides white-glove valet, doorman, and concierge services, plus top-notch security, fitness facility, and outdoor swimming pool.
