A rustic midcentury cabin in need of TLC has hit the market in Los Angeles’ La Crescenta neighbourhood.
The shingle-clad fixer-upper was built in 1956 in the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains on a leafy 9,536 sq ft plot, surrounded by trees. The cabin home itself is just under 1,000 sq ft and has hardwood floors, wood-beamed ceilings and sliding glass doors.
The midcentury cabin is showing signs of its age however, and will need a top-to-toe renovation to realise its full potential. But the Los Angeles property – on the market via Coldwell Banker for $850,000 – has some pretty spectacular views from its artist’s studio, and with a hefty dose of elbow grease would make for a handsome creative retreat.
