Elevated slightly above the street in the woodsy confines of Benedict Canyon, this understated 1950s residence offers a nice mix of midcentury details and contemporary updates.

The 1,530-square-foot home has wood floors throughout, along with original wood paneling, planked ceilings, clerestory windows, and a yellow tile shower. The living room is equipped with a skylight and a wood-burning fireplace; the renovated kitchen includes new appliances—including two ovens—and a large center island complete with a breakfast bar.

The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and most rooms have direct indoor-outdoor access. The master bedroom links up with an en-suite bathroom that’s been thoroughly remodeled with porcelain tiles and a double vanity.

The home sits above a garage and storage area on a one-third-acre lot. The grounds include a large patio space surrounded by neatly maintained gardens and walls of vegetation.

Located at 9617 Yoakum Drive, it’s asking $1.995 million.
