Location: Long Beach, California
Hot new item in Long Beach, California: an updated 1953 single-story home designed by Cliff May, noted midcentury SoCal architect and father of the dreamy California ranch. The three-bedroom, 1,130-square-foot residence has been updated to a modern polish, most noticeably in the open kitchen where there are glistening quartz countertops, glass mosaic backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. Plenty of original features have been kept intact, however, including Mistlite glass dividers in the dining area, birch paneling, as well as all the doors and windows.
The exterior has been meticulously redone as well. There's extensive wood decking with built-in canvas shades leading out to a sunken fire pit and seating area. The drought-resistant landscaping surrounding the home are also well taken care of, with an automatic drip irrigation system. It seems the only thing missing is a pool.
