This home has not one, but two decks to soak in the sun.


Things we love about this property crush:

Step into this two-story Mission Hills home and you’ll immediately think “light” and “bright.” The entry level boasts an open-concept space with a big vaulted, beamed ceiling that makes the room feel huge. That, and the floor-to-ceiling window/sliding door that opens onto a gorgeous deck. It’s easy to imagine al fresco dinner parties that overlook the canyon.

Inside, there’s new hardwood flooring that is begging for mid-century modern furniture. The kitchen features an eat-at breakfast nook with pendant lighting, sleek dark cabinetry, granite countertops, and a new refrigerator and dishwasher.

The master bedroom has an en-suite bath, vanity, and wall-to-wall closets, but the best part is its second deck with loads of space for outdoor furniture. The second bedroom is spacious and the second bath has a tub and subway tiling.

Bonus: The house also has a two-car garage and large under-home storage—perfect for your surfboard and beach gear.
