A 1958 Post-and-Beam, Now a Restored Midcentury Haven, Asks $1.9M

A possible Neutra design, the current owners spent the last two decades restoring original details and are now ready to pass on the keys.

Another midcentury stunner recently popped up on the L.A. market. The 1958 property is set in the tranquil enclave of Silver Lake and boasts a design ascribed to an architect in Richard Neutra’s office, although the agents are unable to verify the connection. What is for certain, though, is the striking post-and-beam design, which was engineered by the prolific structural guru, Eugene Birnbaum.

Nestled on a quiet lot and surrounded lush vegetation, the midcentury home offers a soothing oasis for new owners. A large, covered outdoor seating offers a welcoming path to the main entrance.

During the last two decades, the 1,139-square-foot dwelling has been tenderly restored by its current owners, who went as far as stripping the interior to expose vertical grain cladding that was covered by years of paint. The kitchen balances original cabinetry and yellow countertops with new appliances and fixtures. Other amenities include a backyard pool, grassy lawn, and raised garden beds. 

Upon entry, a long, open hallway leads into the main living spaces.
