Located along the Arroyo Seco in the Garvanza section of Highland Park, this “mid-century modern gem” mixes steel with walls of glass.
The 2,600-square-foot house, which dates to 1967, is described as “waiting to be restored.” It’s being sold by the original owner, for whom it was built, and contains most of the original features, listing agent Richard Perez tells Curbed.
The towering fireplace and the boxy living room shelving unit in the entry and living room exude the timeless style that has made midcentury design so popular again.
Up the stairs from the tall and airy main room of the house, the master bedroom features hillside views and a master bathroom with double sinks and a sunken tiled tub. In all, the house has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms (including one with a rainbow-creating overhang), all with light and charm.
Behind the house, the rear yard is a “clean canvas” with not much landscaping, so there’s the opportunity to create an urban oasis from scratch.
The house is listed for $949,000.
