Photos: This Kooky Nautical-Themed House From 1958 Is Up For Sale

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

This kooky three-bedroom home up for sale in the Hollywood Hills is a welcome reprieve from the modern celebrity mega-mansions that typically get all the attention.

Located on the 7700 block of Firenze Avenue, just off "star-studded" Woodrow Wilson Drive, this house from 1958 has enough of a quasi-nautical theme that Curbed LA has dubbed it a "ship house." Coming in at a cozy 3,881 square-feet, it features plenty of high-ceilings, pretty spacious living spaces, a second-floor loft complete with fire place, skylight, large backyard deck, a hot tub, and enough colors to make your head spin. Peep the weird arrow (?) structure on the front of the building.

It can be yours for just $1,585,000 and you might have to act fast—it was last on the market in 1971 when it sold for only $43,000.
