If you’re an aspiring collector of pedigreed properties, this modest modern by Greta Magnusson Grossman in the Cahuenga Pass might make an excellent starter home.

Nestled beneath towering trees on a private lane off of Lake Hollywood Drive, the hillside home is one of a pair the celebrated Swedish-born designer built in 1954 for client Frances Nelson, who commissioned the joint property with the intent of living in the upper structure and renting out the lower one. The compound was eventually subdivided, and in recent years, both Nelson Houses have served as rentals.

While quite compact—832 square feet, to be exact—the two-bedroom, one-bath post and beam feels larger thanks to its high ceilings, clerestory windows, walls of glass, covered front deck, and expansive side patio.

Other features include hardwood floors, high-end appliances, central heat and air, and a one-car carport.

Last sold in 2006 for $600,000, it’s now asking $925,000.
