Here’s a listing location scouts and set designers oughtta get to know. On the market for the first time in nearly half a century, this Culver City residence was built in 1961, and has been frozen in time ever since.

Located at 5961 Wrightcrest Drive in the subdivision known as Blair Hills, the four-bedroom post and beam calls to mind the work of such midcentury modern masters as Buff and Hensman, A. Quincy Jones, and Rodney Walker. Measuring 2,311 square feet, it features tongue-and-groove ceilings, terrazzo floors, wood paneled walls, built-in furniture, a stacked-stone fireplace, and walls of glass framing cinematic views.

On the other side of all that glass, there’s a sizable swimming pool, a patio lounge area, and manicured gardens. The .3-acre property is also close to the Stoneview Nature Center, Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, and the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook.

Asking price is $1.789 million. Kelley and Todd Miller of Keller Williams have the listing.

On a clear day, you can see forever.
Terrazzo floors, vaulted ceilings, a stacked-stone fireplace, and sliding glass doors leading out to the pool make a persuasive case for California modernism.
The spacious, space age kitchen has a built-in dining table and custom cabinetry galore.
There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Stanley Kubrick would feel right at home in this room.
The property sits on a 12,895-square-foot lot.
