What say we jump in the Way-Back Machine and pay a visit to 1963, courtesy of this frozen-in-time residence in the Hollywood Hills?

Now seeking its second-ever owner, the Cahuenga Pass post-and-beam was designed by architect Richard E. Nevara, whose CV includes a stint overseeing the architectural design department of America’s largest construction and civil engineering corporation, Bechtel.

Perched high off the street above a two-car garage, the 1,438-square-foot home has two bedrooms, two baths, an open-plan living-dining area, and a long galley kitchen. Per the listing description, its original exterior red cedar siding has been restored, “but little else other than necessary maintenance has been done.”

Beyond the wide, shaded porch and baby-blue front door is a slew of classic period features, including beamed ceilings, wood-paneled walls, built-ins, hardwood and tile floors, jalousie windows, formica countertops, and sliding glass doors.

On a 10,499-square-foot lot, the well-preserved home is listed with an asking price of $1.2 million. Open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
