This is one house I’ve always been in love with. Located on a private drive in Eagle Rock, this is a gorgeous and unique mid-century post & beam home by notable LA architect Dick E. Lowry, AIA. I’ve got to take a closer look at Lowry in my next Iconic LA piece. His homes have been popping up a lot lately and they’ve been a great reminder that Lowry is one of Los Angeles’s best, if a bit unsung, architects.

The 2 bedroom house was built in 1961 on not one, not two, but three contiguous lots covering over 18,00 square feet. That’s nearly half an acre! Google map 1404 Oak Grove Drive and you won’t see it. It’s sited up a long and winding drive on a piece of prime Eagle Rock hillside.

Light, space, and form all combine to create this exceptional post and beam. Inside you’ll find wood beamed ceilings, skylights, walls of glass, hardwood floors, and one great stone fireplace.

The kitchen is vintage in the best way. Many of the home’s original elements are in tact or have been finely restored.

1404 Oak Grove Drive has two bedrooms. Each are spacious and have beautiful wood paneling and elegant windows that make the rooms feel deeply connected to the outdoor natural surroundings.

One roomy full bath has easy access to a dreamy private outdoor space. There’s also a second powder room for guests.

The home has plenty of outdoor spaces ideal for Southern California indoor/outdoor living including this large wood deck with serene views of the hillside. It’s perfect for entertaining.

The property has forest-like grounds and lots to explore. Notice how private the property feels.

I just love this portrait of the house.

Another deck has far reaching and expansive views.

There’s also a detached studio work space you’ll fall in love with.

The long list of updates and improvements include plumbing, electrical, and significant structural work.

While all the great shops and restaurants (and Trader Joe’s) on Colorado Blvd. are nearby, 1404 Oak Grove Drive feels incredibly private and secluded and totally at home with its lush and natural surroundings.
