This singular three-bedroom home in Sherman Oaks was built in 1954 and is now available for purchase for the first time since then.

Per the listing, the well-preserved ranch home was designed by notable Southern California architect Robert Byrd, who is (sadly) best known for designing the Benedict Canyon home where Sharon Tate was murdered by members of the Manson family.

Like other houses by Byrd, this one includes a particularly striking brick living room fireplace and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. Other features include built-in seating and shelving, wood paneling, and beamed ceilings.

The rustic kitchen looks mostly original, with wood cabinetry, a custom-carved wooden countertop that juts out into the room, and a vintage oven with a porthole window.

The 1,555-square-foot residence sits on an 8,378-square-foot lot that includes a grassy backyard, gardens, a brick patio, and an attached two-car garage.

Asking price is $985,000. An open house is scheduled 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday
