In Silver Lake’s Moreno Highlands, just a few doors down from R.M. Schindler’s Droste and Walker Residences, you’ll find this unique modernist statement designed by Orange County architect Joseph Kitashima in 1977.

Now on the market for the first time, the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath post-and-beam is an effective blend of California Modernist and Japanese influences.

Notable attributes include beamed ceilings, ceramic tile floors, sliding glass walls, and expansive decks offering picture-postcard views. The 7,789-square-foot property’s grounds contain a koi pond, faux pagoda, and manicured backyard. There’s also a two-car garage equipped with an elevator.

Asking price for the hillside home is $2.295 million, and open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
