Located alongside Wattles Garden Park in the Hollywood Hills, the midcentury modern Schustack Residence is a well-preserved example of the explosively popular period.
The house was built in 1957 and designed by architect Howard Lane (a one-time student of Mies van der Rohe), who mostly did commercial design with big-name firms like Pereira & Luckman, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and AC Martin, the listing says.
The four-bedroom house features clerestory windows, beamed ceilings, a dining room, and a large and airy living room.
At least two of the bedrooms have pegboard walls, a cool utilitarian touch. The house’s two bathrooms are boldly decorated, featuring radiant blue-green tile and fun wallpaper reminiscent of old timey advertisements.
The rear yard features a kidney-shaped pool and plenty of space for sunbathing—the approximately 19,000-square-foot lot is largely flat.
The house has only been on the market once before, selling in 2013 for just over $2.1 million. It’s now listed for $3.49 million.
