Handsome midcentury in the prestigious Los Feliz Oaks lists for $1.7M

With landmark views and original architectural details mixed with modern-day creature comforts, this handsome midcentury in Los Feliz Oaks is everything.

From the curb, all you see of 5605 Hill Oak Dr — sited on a 10,866-square-foot elevated knoll — is its low-slung roof line, windows, and a brick wall enclosing the patio.

Built circa 1952, the single-story post and beam dwelling opens to the living room anchored by an oversized stone fireplace offering impressive views of the Griffith Observatory and lush green scenery from the surrounding hills. To the left are two bedrooms and a den. To the right are the open living-kitchen-dining room and an office off the dining area enclosed with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors.

Inside the two-bedroom, three-bath residence measuring 2,228 square feet is a beautiful blend of untouched architectural details, including period bathrooms decorated with original wallpaper and authentic vintage sinks and fixtures.

On the market for the second time since it was completed, the home last sold in 1988 for $510,000. It’s now listed with Michael Maguire and Victoria Messengale asking $1.699 million.
