Here’s a Hollywood Hills place on the market for less than $1 million. Situated in the Cahuenga Pass area, the 1949 house melds “subtle geometry and nautical efficiency,” says the listing.

Architect Raymond Stockdale—who was behind the recently landmarked Pan American Bank in East LA—designed the two-bedroom home for himself. In the 1950s, it was photographed by great documentarian of modern architecture, Julius Shulman.

The slim kitchen still has its original Douglas Fir cabinets; shiplap, pitched ceiling; and hillside views from the living room.

But the two-bedroom has changed quite a bit since its Shulman photo shoot days. As the listing notes, the bedrooms and bathrooms have been redone, and an unpermitted “bonus space” with retro wood paneling and built-in seats and bookshelves was added to the 5,281-square-foot property.

Also outside, there’s a deck that curves around part of the house for enjoying the hillside views.

Last sold in 2005 for $739,000, it’s now listed for $899,000.
