On the market for the first time ever is this fun midcentury modern in the hills just west of the Silver Lake Reservoir. Completed in 1958, the two-story residence has no architect listed on its building permit; however, its structural engineer was Eugene Birnbaum, whose office was located in the late, lamented Yolk building, and who designed most of California’s IHOP restaurants.

Measuring 3,589 square feet, the well-preserved home contains three bedrooms, a living room, dining room, sun room, and kitchen on its upper level, and a generous guest suite with one bedroom, one bath, living room, and kitchen on the lower level.

Architectural features include paneled walls, sliding glass doors, terrazzo floors, two stone fireplaces, and built-in seating, storage, and electronics. There’s also a darkroom and a two-car garage.

Located at 2073 Redcliff Street on a 9,038-square-foot lot with panoramic views, the property is asking $2.15 million. Janice McGlashan of Coldwell Banker has the listing.

The family room features wood-paneled walls, a river rock fireplace, and a built-in TV.
In the well-preserved kitchen, a built-in banquette has a view out to the grassy backyard.
Windows on the upper level frame postcard views of the Reservoir and San Gabriel Mountains.
The master suite is lined with built-in shelving and cabinets.
Downstairs, there’s a separate guest suite with one bedroom, one bath, living room, modern kitchen, laundry, and private entrance.
The backyard contains a sizable lawn and a river stone fountain.
