Pick of the listings: A mid-mod in the hills

At first glance, I thought that was a little helipad in the backyard of this freshly listed mid-century modern house at 626 Vistamont Avenue. On reflection it’s probably where a hot tub might be placed, under the trees with sylvan view to boot. Either way, this looks like an intriguing property.

There’s the setting — a 20,000 sq ft lot of  greenery and trees, with hill views — and the architecture. The house was built in 1959 and has floor to ceiling windows and wraparound decks to take advantage of those views. The rock-wall fireplace is totally in keeping, as are the beamed ceilings and roof overhangs.

There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 1,855 square feet and the home is priced at $799,000 ($431/sq ft).

    I’m curious if there’s a known issue here, maybe foundation? The price seems quite low.

    The price is low because anyone who buys the house will need to spend a gazillion to completely remodel and redo the finishes, interior and exterior. And that’s just to start. It looks also looks very shoddily constructed, cheap. The landscaping will have to be redone as well. It looks like the worst of the ’60s….
