This late-era midcentury modern home in La Jolla, a community in San Diego, California, appears to sparkle thanks to the glint coming off of the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Measuring 1,817 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths, the 1968-built residence, which has been updated since then, boasts many of the era’s best features, including a soaring great room with beamed ceilings, a large stone hearth that divides the split-level living area, open kitchen and dining, and, of course, sliding glass doors and clerestory windows.
The two bedrooms, one ensuite, are predictably spacious, while a small patio, porch, and backyard offer a healthy dose of outdoor space. Two sizable balconies provide additional outdoor entertaining opportunities. But with the ocean right there, everything is almost secondary.
With a few more tweaks—namely replacing the kitchen counter and sprucing up the bathrooms—this property could really shine bright. Located at 5409 Moonlight Lane, it’s offered at $1.75 million.
