“The house is basically a time warp,” listing agent Joseph Chiovare said. “It’s almost all original.”
The 3,000-square-foot home, designed by noted local architect John Galbraith in 1961, was ahead of its time when it debuted. But it’s still in style thanks to its sleek lines, walls of glass, and open floor plan.
Of course, a few things in the home have changed. The original broker’s listing from the ’60s boasted “13 telephone lines,” “200 light switches,” and a “hi-fi stereo system,” Chiovare noted.
And speaking of changes, the price has gone up since the home hit the market five decades ago. But Chiovare said $ 1.9 million is “a great price for the area and the view.” He said he’s already fielded multiple offers for the home.
Nestled into a canyon, the home literally feels above it all—and apparently there’s little reason to leave. The sellers have called the address home since 1971.
Despite their long residence, the sellers renovated only the granite countertops and floor in the kitchen, the agent said.
Those gleaming white terrazzo floors? “They’re almost all original,” he said. “They’re as nice today as the day they put them in.”
When you’re not staring down at the floor, you’ll be gazing at spectacular city and mountain vistas, which include the Santa Anita Park, downtown Los Angeles, and Catalina Island. “I can’t figure out what time is better, either day or night, because they’re both incredible,” Chiovare said.
This video hints at the vistas you’ll experience, with nobody peering back at you. You can’t see any neighbors aside from the ones below you, “and you feel like you’re on top of the world,” Chiovare said.
You may want to invite the locals over. With its bar, pool, and patio, this place was made for partying. To get in the mod mood, just pipe in a little Frank Sinatra.
