A “true” mid-century modern home designed by iconic “Cliff May” and located in the highly desirable Ranchos Estates. Built in 1953, this home exudes the authenticity and character of the era emphasizing open concept living, abundant natural light, connection to the outdoors with an open-air central courtyard, clean architectural lines, original tongue & grove beamed ceilings, walls of glass clerestory windows, rich birch paneling, and “L” shape floorplan accentuating all the elements of Cliff May's authentic design. In 2018, the current owners spared no expense with outstanding quality upgrades: birch kitchen and bath cabinetry, custom designed and built by master carpenter Steve Marderosian, oversized island, custom recessed lighting, polished concrete floors, sky lights added, laundry area, modern bath, custom birch and douglas fir built-ins, central air/forced heating upgrades, and roof restoration to enhance insulation and disguise electrical components. The “Little Free Library” the owners installed allow for neighbors to exchange books
