Location: San Mateo, California
This midcentury modern cutie in San Mateo in northern California was designed by local architect Mogens “Mogie” Mogensen and was completed in 1955. Completely renovated since then and with all of the best features of the period in tact, the 1,790-square-foot single-story residence ushers in the sun from all sides, creating a sunny, welcoming home in which to relax and entertain.
The L-shape layout accommodates three bedrooms, two baths, a living area with walls of glass on two sides, a large open kitchen, and a dining area—all with views toward the backyard and terrace. There’s even a courtyard out front.
A gently sloping roof and tongue-and-groove beamed ceilings add height and drama to the interiors, which are characterized by pale mint and gray walls and wide-plank light hardwood floors. Each of the bedrooms boasts full-height windows, too.
Period-appropriate furniture would bring this property back to its former glory days, though it’s move-in ready as it is. Located at 3119 Sunset Terrace, it’s offered at $1.798 million.
