Built in 1958, this two-bedroom home is nestled among the trees on a quiet street in Beachwood Canyon. The 1,882-square-foot home was last purchased in 1995 (for $235,000) and is currently owned by Oscar-nominated costume designer Rita Ryack, who tailored wardrobes for films like How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Hairspray.
A bit of that festive aesthetic is on display here, with an array of patterned wallpaper designs on display throughout the residence. The vintage kitchen has been well preserved and, though the stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher look new, the gas range and double oven are very era-appropriate.
The 1,882-square-foot home includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with a den, office, and attached garage. The airy living room opens to a large balcony shaded by the many surrounding trees.
Situated on a steep 6,766-square-foot lot, the home also includes a walled front courtyard with tile flooring and plenty of room for a garden or outdoor seating.
Additional features include hardwood floors, wide windows, glass sliding doors, and a rare basement level with plenty of additional storage space.
Asking price is $1.299 million. An open house is scheduled for Sunday between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m.
