The interior is dotted with wooden doors and “original hardware,” like a wrought iron chandelier in the dining room.

A bedroom to the left of the foyer has two large picture windows and a wood-burning stove; a bedroom to the right has a wall of closets, a bay window and an en-suite bathroom.

The living room is more than 350 square feet, with a pitched, double-height ceiling and sliding-glass doors that open to a balcony. On one side is a kitchen with a breakfast bar; on the other is a third bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and balcony.

On the market for the first time since 1976, a cozy and compact home with a dramatically pitched roofline is ready to welcome a new owner to one of the city’s most charming neighborhoods.

Those eyeing the Los Angeles real estate market will have the chance to bid on a 1963 A-frame in Eagle Rock beginning February 12 with the starting price of $699,000. The three-bedroom, three-bath residence previously housed a geologist and professor emeritus at nearby Occidental College, whose son writes in a statement, “The home was designed for people to enjoy. The vaulted ceilings are a sheer delight for their acoustics, and even more, for the view they afford of the San Gabriel Mountains.” The main living floor enjoys a floor-to-ceiling glass exposure that invites guests out onto a partially-covered terrace, from which you can glimpse the rock outcropping that gives the neighborhood its name. Says communications manager at Deasy/Penner & Partners Justin Juarez, “A-frames are uncommon in Los Angeles, making this a unique commodity. The view, the natural light, the character all make this a very appealing house.”
