You don't need the listing to tell you that this 1959 house, designed by mid-century post and beam experts Buff & Hensman, expertly employs the floor-to-ceiling windows to capitalize on "spectacular mountain vistas and sparkling city lights" of its site in the Cahuenga Pass, but it will. We get it: with sweeping views like this, why not brag? Inside the 2,167-square-foot house you'll find three bedrooms, three bathrooms, an atrium, hardwood floors, and "truly beautiful cabinetry and woodwork." The house was carefully restored by Buff, Hensman and Smith in 2002, according to the Pacific Coast Architecture Database, when, the listing adds, they also made an addition to the house. It last changed hands in 2006 for $1.92 million ($25,000 over asking). Asking price today is $2.295 million.
