Midcentury charm oozes from this hillside home in Los Angeles, which offers a checklist of period features including wood-panelling, clerestory windows and exposed beams.

The two-bedroom Silverlake property was built by contractor Wayne Fuess in 1957 and has been owned by his family since, which helps explain its well-preserved interiors. Its entrance is set back behind bamboo doors and a planted courtyard, which leads to a light-filled open plan living space – with views of LA as well as the San Gabriel mountains.

Fuess’ daughter updated its outdoor space, installing bamboo fencing and stone seating, which creates a peaceful spot to spy on the local hummingbirds, hawks and owls. Bedrooms also open up onto terraces.

As well as a separate garage, the LA property includes a standalone art studio, wrapped in windows and with plenty of space for an easel or two. Fitzburgh Realty has the listing for 3001 Waverly Drive, which is asking $1.535m.
