This Laurel Canyon home combines a woodsy, cabin vibe with touch of glamour. Built in 1926, the house includes built-in woodwork, high ceilings with exposed beams, an imposing fireplace, and lovely windows.
The listing copy mentions the residence’s “rock and roll history,” but doesn’t drop any names. Laurel Canyon was once home to a stream of big-name musicians in the 1960s and 1970s like Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Carole King, so it’s not a stretch to believe that at some point, this house on Lookout Mountain Avenue was connected to that scene.
The residence’s kitchen sports fantastic blue and white tilework, which, along with the vintage-looking stove, give this wing of the house a solidly retro feel.
The two-bedroom home includes a step-down den and a rear patio. And though it is certainly rustic in appearance, it includes the modern convenience of central heating and air conditioning.
Last sold in 2007 for $809,000, it’s now listed for $989,000.
