Per the Listing: "Fabulous fifties post and beam hideaway above the Sunset Strip with views to Long Beach. This mid-century gem is located on a secluded street in the Hollywood Hills and features an open floor plan with walls of glass facing the city lights and treetop views, while an expansive deck and a verdant back yard provide additional outdoor living space. The two bedrooms and master bath are adjacent to a private side yard area, and the two-car attached garage with built-in storage has direct access to the house. New carpet, fresh paint, and an updated master bath with double-vanity make it move-in ready, or modernize and refurbish to your taste. Some recent upgrades along with a new owner's vision and updating will make this wonderful property shine."
We think everyone can agree that this house has some lovely elements, but as the listing alludes to you'll need to invest some energy and $$$ into renovating the house. The bathroom looks hideous and the bedrooms were probably too small to photograph. Space is limited, so be prepared to do most of your entertaining on the balcony, which isn't all that bad.
