Tucked into the Cahuenga Pass and “just three houses from Mulholland,” as the listing notes, this midcentury modern residence was designed by renowned architecture duo Buff and Hensman.

The estate was built in 1961—and it looks as groovy as ever. Set back from the street at the end of a private and gated driveway, the house is replete with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that capitalize on incredible vistas. Terrazzo floors and “period correct” tile bolster the midcentury feel.

The house recently underwent a thorough but sensitive renovation that added built-ins and new cabinets designed to blend with the original features and architecture.

The property spans .65 acres and also contains a post and beam guest house, which sits photogenically nestled next to the pool.

Last sold in 2013 for $2.199 million, the estate is now listed for $3.8 million.

Walls of glass abound.
New additions and original features meld seamlessly.
Hardwood floors run throughout.
Even the bedroom offers up expansive vistas.
