A house that's belonged to one owner for 50 years is a blessing and a curse. You get lots of fabulous 1958 style, but then you also get warnings like "Buyer responsible for all termite work & retro-fitting requirements." This house in the Briar Summit area near Mulholland and Laurel Canyon is being sold in a trust sale; the deceased was only the house's second owner. The house sits on a third of an acre and has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a pool, concrete floors, and some seriously psychedelic wallpaper. Asking price is $979,000.
