Location: Eagle Rock, Los Angeles
Nested in the hills of Eagle Rock, this mid-century post-and-beam is one of just a few four-bedrooms listed under $1 million in the neighborhood right now, with its asking price right at the area’s current median sale price. The property is just east of the 2 Freeway and less than a mile from where the main commercial stretches of Eagle Rock and York Boulevards intersect. Most lively these days, of course, are restaurants with outdoor dining patios, such as Max City BBQ and Zweet Cafe on Eagle Rock, and Hinterhof — a vegan beer garden — on York. Occidental College, where Barack Obama spent his freshman and sophomore years, is just a five-minute drive east.

Built in 1963 and on the market for the first time in 16 years, 2727 Dicturn Street is structured like a pair of vertically stacked boxcars. On the upper level is an open-plan living and dining area defined by tongue-and-groove ceilings, exposed beams, and glass walls facing the hillside. Also on the main floor is the kitchen, which has been renovated with quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and bar seating. The main floor is rounded out with a master bedroom with a skylit en suite bath. The lower level has three additional bedrooms (all on the smaller side), a full bath, and a family room that opens up to an enormous concrete deck, which comes with a chevron-shaped fire pit and built-in seating overlooking terraced gardens of succulents, Italian cypress, and silk floss trees. The house also has a (small) fully fenced front yard and a detached two-car garage.
