Walls of glass, a fun front door, and a fun, zig-zagging roof are just few of the stand-out elements in this 1953 house, located in a hilly area of Mt. Washington near Highland Park and Eagle Rock.

Inside, the living room features not only floor-to-ceiling windows but also a large statement fireplace with built-in bookcases and wood-paneled walls. Wood floors run throughout the three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence. The whole place has groovy midcentury look.

A modest rear yard is supplemented by a deck and mountain views. The house is approached by a curving driveway and has carport parking fronting the home.

The property has been on the market twice in the last three years, surfacing first in 2015 as a fixer-upper and then again in 2016 with a spruced-up look and slew of largely sensitive updates.

The house is listed now for $1.149 million.
