Built in 1959, this Los Feliz home is looking sharp almost 60 years later, with plenty of original details intact.

The 1,312-square-foot home has an unusual bridge-like layout, with the kitchen suspended above the driveway. The living room opens to an elevated back deck that provides east-facing views across the LA River.

Inside are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, complemented by a storage room and a detached guest unit. The home’s many vintage features include pitched ceilings, glass walls and sliding doors, cork floors, and some lovely wooden cabinetry. The spacious living room is equipped with cinderblock walls, a fireplace, and built-in bench seating.

The bedrooms boast wood-paneled ceilings, and the master opens to a long, private balcony.

Sitting on a 7,969-square-foot lot, the house has a terraced backyard, from which it’s possible to take in more of those views.

Asking price is $1.2999 million. Open houses are scheduled Tuesday, July 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Thursday, July 5, between 5 p.m. and 6:30 pm.
