A 1958 Midcentury With Stunning L.A. Views Lists For $2.2M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo

On the market for the first time in 10 years, this classic midcentury home was architect Ray Kappe’s first commission.

Designed in 1958 by Los Angeles architect and SCI-Arc founder Ray Kappe, the Waymire Residence is a stunning example of classic midcentury style. With sweeping city views and much of its original character still intact, the 1,906-square-foot home can easily serve as a blank canvas for period-appropriate updates.

Now, for the first time in the last decade, the three-bedroom, two-bath property is being listed for $2,200,000. Scroll ahead for a glimpse inside, as well as a look at a few vintage photos of the house when it was built.
