Propped up on stilts, this lofty two-story residence in Montecito Heights maximizes the views from the verdant hillside lot upon which it’s perched.

Built in 1964, the home was designed by Canadian-born architect John Pugsley, who drew up plans for numerous homes in Pasadena and Northeast LA during the midcentury era.

This particular house blends distinctively modern style with a woodsy, rustic charm. Outside, the 1,410-square-foot home is adorned with wood shingles, overhanging eaves, and pergolas. Inside are wood floors, walls of glass, and multiple indoor-outdoor access points.

The house has three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, with balconies overlooking the forest-like surroundings. The open living and dining area flow into the kitchen, which includes a built-in breakfast bar.

Sitting on a 6,156-square-foot lot, the home is fronted by a two-car garage. In the back are neatly landscaped pathways and benches, alongside bamboo chutes and a small, stone-lined pond.

Asking price is $830,000.

Wood floors and sliding glass doors can be found throughout the house.

Opposite the kitchen is a built-in bar nook,

Multiple rooms open up to balconies alongside the house.

The upper level balcony looks out across the neighborhood.
