This Storybook Village in the Heart of L.A. Wants $1.45M

For the first time ever, this mini Danish village, plunked as it is in the middle of L.A.'s Koreatown (duh), is on the market, asking $1.45M for a storybook-style "studio court" designed in 1921 by prolific L.A. muralist and Denmark transplant Einar C. Petersen. Now flanked by a seafood restaurant and thrift shop, Petersen's studio complex—five buildings encompassing six units—is a little out of place, though, to be fair, its thatched roofs, stucco walls, and stone pathways would probably make it stick out just about anywhere. Dubbed a "Hansel-and-Gretel-style bungalows court" by Curbed LA, the complex was designed to replicate Petersen's Danish hometown. He kept a studio there until his death in 1986, and, until now, the listing, a designated historic-cultural monument, has remained in the family. More photos, below.
