On a hillside in Los Feliz’s Franklin Hills, this singular midcentury home features angled windows, oak floors, a remodeled kitchen, and an asymmetrical vaulted ceiling that give the place a cool inside-of-a-ship look. Unlike most boats, however, this 2,400-square-foot residence is an airy, bright, and spacious place to hang your hat.

Built in 1963 and designed by architect Stephen Alan Siskind, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house features multiple outdoor spaces, including one with a built-in barbecue area and fireplace.

The grounds also include a detached studio—a striking glass-and-steel cube backed by a floor-to-ceiling glass window that gets Griffith Observatory views.

This property last sold in June 2016 for $1.625 million. It’s now listed for $1.785 million.
