Location: Del Mar, California

Price: $2,595,000

Here’s a basically untouched 1960s home coming at you from Del Mar, a beach city in San Diego County, where there sun shines nearly all year ’round and the midcentury moderns are plentiful, too.

Designed by well-known Bay Area architect Robert Klemmedson, the 2,974-square-foot four-bedroom is on the market for the first time ever and boasts virtually all original details. These include the beamed ceilings, teak wood paneling, walls of windows, cork flooring, and time capsule kitchen with Chambers stove.

A huge stone hearth anchors the living room, which features floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open onto a deck (one of several throughout the residence). A dining room by the kitchen, as well as most of the rooms in the split-level house are all illuminated by generous glazing.

Set on nearly half an acre, the time capsule even glimpses the ocean through Torrey pine trees. Although a refresh of the interiors is necessary (to replace those carpeted floors, for one), the property located at 437 Pine Needles Drive is move-in ready. But it’s going to cost you a pretty penny: It’s offered at $2.6 million.
