Impeccably preserved and respectfully restored, this hillside midcentury modern showcases a fresh rendition of a period gem. The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home with one-car garage and .16-acre lot is thoughtfully situated to capitalize both on valley vistas (with sunrise views and ocean peeks) and on the peacefulness and tranquility its unique location affords. Vaulted ceilings and open-plan living areas foster a light and airy ambiance while exposed rafters, redwood paneling, built-in shelving and cabinetry, and an of the era stone fireplace contribute to the 1948 home's vintage appeal. While its original essence has been neatly upheld, such updated elements as new flooring, electrical wiring, refinished redwood paneling, a newer kitchen and appliances, newer fixtures, new sewer line and newer windows prime the 1,348 square foot cottage for turnkey enjoyment. In the sun-drenched backyard, a simple lawn, stone water feature, and trellised sitting area create cozy environs for summertime leisure. For more living space one might add a second story, in turn capturing even greater ocean and mountain views from above.
Perched above town in the San Roque Foothills (on the more desirable, eastern side of Laurel Canyon), the home's rugged surroundings provide access to hiking and a feeling of countryside solitude. Meanwhile, such in-town amenities as Peabody School, uptown shopping, and Hendry's Beach and The Boathouse are luckily just minutes away. www.3208laurelcanyon.com
