This modern residence in Los Feliz was built in 1951 and is now making its first appearance on the market since 1999.
Located in the hilly Oaks neighborhood (right next to the Lloyd Wright-designed Samuel-Novarro House restored by Diane Keaton back in the ’90s), the home has 2,600 square feet of living space and plenty of outdoor space to take advantage of the woodsy surroundings.
The four-bedroom, two-bath home sits at the end of a long drive on a quarter-acre lot with multiple patios and a beautiful, pergola-shaded sitting area surrounded by treetops and other vegetation. Another brick courtyard includes a small fish pond.
Parts of the home have clearly been updated over the years, but plenty of vintage features remain, including wood-paneled walls, beamed ceilings, glass sliding doors, and red brick fireplaces in the living and dining rooms.
Other features include built-in shelving, a partially enclosed outdoor dining area, and an intriguing hidden bar between the living and dining rooms. A separate office space is located next to the home’s main entrance.
The house sold 18 years ago for $599,000. Asking price is now $1.725 million.
