Location: Oceanside, California

Price: $3,500,000

Elegant and distinctly Southern Californian, this gorgeous 1960 home by pioneering female architect Edla Muir perches atop the Fire Mountain neighborhood of Oceanside, the third largest city in San Diego County. Muir was known for designing homes for stars like Shirley Temple and Barbara Stanwyck.

Measuring approximately 2,500 square feet, the recently refurbished brick residence combines a unique L-shaped layout with walls of glass, beamed ceilings, wood paneling, handsome built-ins, and hardwood and tiled floors.

A windowed dining area flows into a cozy living space with fireplace, while an additional great room with a curving corner fireplace opens up to an outdoor patio. The spacious kitchen features a brick-clad stove unit, and the master bedroom (also with a fireplace) and a second bedroom occupy windowed corners (there are three bedrooms total).

Outside, the manicured yard includes an infinity pool and spa as well as a brick patio ideally positioned to take in the “270-degree” view of the surrounding ocean and cityscape. Located at 1812 Baily Drive, the property is the only Muir design to be commissioned in San Diego and is offered at $3.5 million.
