A beautifully preserved midcentury modern home by William Krisel is on the market in La Jolla, California. Built in 1962, it retains all the enticing elements of the era—with a few sympathetic updates—starting with its gently sloping roof, soaring tongue-and-groove beamed ceilings, and walls of glass.

Measuring just over 2,000 square feet, the Drogan-built residence features three bright bedrooms, two full baths, and a wide-open living area anchored by a fireplace and encompassing an open kitchen, dining area, and family room. This space is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling backyard-framing windows that create the sensation of seamless indoor-outdoor living.

Outside, the large backyard boasts grassy lawns, a concrete patio with fire pit, an additional trellis-covered seating area, as well as other shaded seating opportunities created by the roof’s deep overhangs. A two-car garage rounds out the property, located at 5433 Avenida Fiesta. It’s offered at $1.549 million.
