SETTING This house is on a winding road in Eagle Rock, a neighborhood in northeast Los Angeles, between Pasadena and Glendale, known in part as the home of Occidental College. Most of the houses are single-family; this A-frame faces the San Gabriel Mountains to the north. Colorado Boulevard, a commercial strip that stretches into downtown Pasadena, is within a mile.

The front door opens to a foyer with a brick floor, overlooking the lower-level living room with its exposed beams and glass wall. A bedroom to the left of the foyer has two large picture windows and a wood-burning stove; a bedroom to the right has a wall of closets, a bay window and an en-suite bathroom.

The living room is more than 350 square feet, with a pitched, double-height ceiling and sliding-glass doors that open to a balcony. On one side is a kitchen with a breakfast bar; on the other is a third bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and balcony.

OUTDOOR SPACE The lot is sharply sloped, with natural landscaping.
