Nestled alongside the Cahuenga Pass, just south of Universal City, is this dashing midcentury modern home that appears to have been kept in pretty good shape since its 1954 construction.

Per the listing, the home was built for a boom operator employed by Cecil B. DeMille. Many original details are still intact, including most of the kitchen, which boasts sleek chrome handles on the cabinetry and a vintage Western Holly oven with a porthole-style window.

Other interior features include cork floors, wood-paneled walls, beamed ceilings, and clerestory windows. The living room is illuminated by a long wall of glass, and a stone-floored nook to the side has built-in shelving and a brick fireplace.

The home has three bedrooms and its two full bathrooms have been recently updated. It leads out to an enclosed backyard with a pergola-shaded patio.

Sitting on a 6,185-square-foot lot, the house also has large front and side yards, with a carport equipped with an electric charger.

Asking price is $1.048 million.
