Property Description

Sheltered behind a privacy fence of clear heart redwood and the canopy of a mature Palo Verde tree- find this well updated example of architect Cliff May's 1954 Rancho Estates home. Floor to ceiling windows and polished concrete floors create a seamless transition between indoors and out, making the home feel much larger than its measurements would indicate. A skylit and open plan kitchen of custom walnut cabinetry topped with Caesarstone is at its center, with a large island workspace. The rich walnut seen here is utilized elsewhere as paneling and built-in storage to great effect. Jack and Jill guest bedrooms feature May's signature window walls, obscure glass panels, and clerestory windows to invite natural light into every corner. Both bathrooms have seen sophisticated renovations- with Carrerra marble tile at the guest bath and a glass tile in the primary bath chosen to complement the original terrazzo shower pan. The primary bedroom, living room, and dining area all feature window walls that open directly to the patios and gardens, expanding living spaces outward. The surrounding gardens and landscape provide areas of sun and shade, as well as places for entertaining and outdoor dining. A raised Ipe deck encompasses a fire pit to create a central gathering place. The detached two car garage is well situated at the front of the property, fortifying the classic mid-century modern compound. Located in close proximity to the spectacular 800 acre El Dorado Park and nature preserve, as well as to the San Gabriel River path and its direct access to Seal Beach. Tree lined streets, excellent schools, and a sense of community that rivals just about any in the city.
