This Baldwin Hills midcentury modern by architect Harold Zook is bright, sleek, and charming, from the geometric breeze blocks in the front to the patio with views in the rear.
Built in 1959, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom house opens onto a living area with a commanding granite-face fireplace and wet bar, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the backyard pool. A dining area connects the living room to the kitchen, a modest-sized space with a contemporary look, stainless steel appliances, and updated countertops.
The spacious master bedroom features a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass and a wonderful bathroom with pink-tiled dual vanity and a pink and gray-tiled shower enclosure. The master bedroom opens by way of those tall windows to the backyard, where there’s an ample patio surrounding the kidney-shaped pool.
That patio overlooks treetops and neighbors’ roofs for miles, even offering a view of Downtown in the distance.
The property last sold in 2016 for $1.095 million. It now asking $1.495 million.
