If private outdoor space is at the top of your home buying checklist, you don’t want to miss out on 3454 Reynolds Avenue. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom single-family home, located at the base of Montecito Heights in Los Angeles, sits on a long, narrow sloping lot that has been divided into three distinct garden tiers.

From street level, the two-story, 1,360-square-foot home looks modern, but rather modest. It’s partially clad in corrugated metal with a contemporary exterior door and a narrow planter made from warm wood slats.

The entry level offers an industrial loft vibe with high ceilings, polished concrete floors and ample natural light. The open-concept space boasts room for lounging, dining or working and there’s a three-piece bathroom with a sleek vanity and black matte faucet.

Climb the spiral staircase to the second story, which houses two bedrooms, a full bathroom and a small landing area with hardwood flooring throughout.

What the master bedroom lacks in closet space it makes up for in natural light. The ensuite bathroom features a shower and tub combo, large format tile flooring, and a vanity setup that’s identical to the one downstairs.

The second bedroom is currently being used as a home office and offers city and hillside views to distract you from the mundane task of responding to emails.

On the other side of the home, there’s an open kitchen with a large farmhouse sink, white countertops that appear to be quartz and a matching four-inch backsplash. The dark cabinetry delivers high contrast against the chrome hardware and stainless steel appliances and the space can also accommodate a small dining table.

The included washer and dryer are located outside under a covered structure and the three-tiered yard is entirely fenced in with redwood. The first level provides shade from mature guava and banana trees and would be the perfect spot for alfresco dining. Climb the spiral staircase to access the second level, dotted with drought-tolerant plants that are native to California.

Level three is flat (well, once you haul your cookies up yet another staircase) and features a towering date palm and several raised beds for growing herbs and veggies.

3454 Reynolds Avenue is equipped with central air conditioning and a security system. It’s within walking distance of Ernest E. Debs Regional Park, which offers a scenic, five-mile hiking loop and a pond with surrounding picnic areas. Live in close proximity to Downtown Los Angeles, Highland Park and Dodger Stadium — the Eastside is your oyster!
