Perched atop a hill, this two bedroom, two bath home is giving us #doorsofinstagram vibes right off the bat with a bold orange front door. Built in 1963, the inside doesn’t disappoint with mid-century features, such as the dramatic floor-to-ceiling fireplace that separates the entryway from the living room.

The rest of the upstairs has an “open flow” between the living room, dining room, and kitchen, which features bi-color cabinets. There’s an ample outdoor patio off the living room with views of the Santa Monica Mountains. Being on a hilltop cul-de-sac, there are 180 degree views from the home. There’s one bedroom upstairs.

Downstairs, there’s a second bedroom and a flexible area that could be used as an office, media room, family room, or a large sitting area for the master bedroom. The flex area has a door to a second outdoor patio. Both bedrooms have a wall of closets.

The house has an updated roof and a two-car garage (there’s also ample street parking). The property is listed for $799,000 with Sotheby’s.
