While Whitley Heights is justifiably renowned as a bastion of 1920s Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, its roster of historically designated structures also contains a smattering of homes erected after World War II. Among the handful of late-era properties making the cut is this striking specimen tucked away behind hedges on Grace Avenue.

Built in 1949, the two-story residence is an appealing mixture of International, Streamline Moderne, and Hollywood Regency styles. Standout features include hardwood and cement slab floors, a wood-burning fireplace, original tile, a glamorous wrought-iron balcony railing and banks of casement windows framing cinematic views of palm trees, the Capitol Records building, and other LA landmarks.

In addition to the top-floor balcony, the three-bedroom, three-bath home features several other options for al fresco enjoyment, including a brick patio and a canopy-shaded dining platform. Mercifully, the property also comes with a two-car garage.

Last sold in 2013 for $1.6 million, it’s now listed at an asking price of $1.975 million.
