Hard to beat the views

Well, here’s a statement house if we ever saw one. Sitting quite literally in the shadow of the Hollywood Sign, it was constructed in 1953 and sports a sleek midcentury design with walls of glass and sliding doors that accentuate its impressive views.

The 3,381-square-foot home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with an open living room, dining room, and kitchen. Interior features include beamed and vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows, built-in shelving, and a large brick fireplace in the living room.

The house sits on a one-third-acre lot with a grassy lawn, wraparound deck space, and a kidney-shaped swimming pool. Flanked by trees, the home opens directly to the backyard, which looks down into Griffith Park and the city beyond.

Of course, the house may not be there for long, as the listing notes that buyers could “start from scratch to create your dream retreat.” For a preservation-minded (and very wealthy) buyer, though, it’s a modern-style residence bound to impress your friends.

Asking price is $3.3 million
