In these teardown-happy times, it’s always a pleasant surprise to encounter a vintage home that has retained the characteristics it was born with. So we were more than delighted to make the acquaintance of this new listing in Trousdale Estates that’s just hit the market for the first time in nearly 50 years.

Completed in 1959, the Loma Vista Drive time capsule is one of a handful of homes in the exclusive development designed by the gifted Rex Lotery. Made of wood, glass, and stone, the 4,683-square-foot home has five bedrooms, four and a half baths, high ceilings, clerestory windows, two floating fireplaces, and a bevy of built-ins. Other features include an expansive lawn, a swimming pool, and carport.

The .61-acre property is listed with an asking price of $7.495 million—here’s hoping it finds a preservation-minded buyer!
