Packed with pedigree and beautiful bones, it’s a wonder that this midcentury-modern, perched high in the Oakland Hills, isn’t asking well over $1 million. Fret not—a home this special will most certainly spark a bidding war.

Designed in 1959 by noted architect John Hans Ostwald—who conceived this delirious daydream fodder13015 Skyline Boulevard comes with four bedrooms, three baths, and 3,742 square feet.

It also boasts soaring ceilings (with a delightfully sharp peak), concrete paired next to wood, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, exposed beams, globe lighting, fireplace with floating hearth and metal cladding, and wraparound deck.

The home, as stunning as it is, is in need of some TLC. And much more could be done with the expansive and wooded .83-acre lot upon which it sits. Overall, though, a prime piece of history.

Asking is $985,000.
