Surrounded by tall trees and meandering garden paths, this woodsy house in Laurel Canyon is looking for its second-ever owner.
The handsome, late modern home was built in 1979 by USC-trained architect Barry Gittelson. Its tall exterior is sided with dark wood planks, camouflaging it somewhat along the tree-covered hillside it sits on.
Inside, the 2,314-square-foot residence has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a formal dining room, kitchen, living room, and reading nook neatly arranged on landings and split levels surrounding floating staircases. Features include wood floors, beamed ceilings, built-in shelving, casement windows, French doors, and a fireplace in the upper level living room.
The house is flanked by large deck spaces that provide treetop views and room for outdoor seating and dining. There’s also a small one-bedroom bungalow on the property with its own bathroom and a separate garage.
The residence sits on a quarter-acre of land with a hilly garden and stairs alongside the house. Asking price is $1.9 million.
