This Marina del Rey, California home is for all you mid-century fans.
It is deceptive from the street – in fact, the house is downright ugly in terms of curb appeal:
Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, “ugly” might be too strong. But we can all agree it is severe, right? How about meh?
However, look at the backside of the home:
It’s quite the sanctuary!
The interior is the biggest treat of all. Current owners have kept the 1957 house in mint mid-century condition with mostly original features and period decor.
This home was designed in 1957 by Daisuke Dike Nagano. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and is for sale for $1.675 million.
Visible below is the wood accordion room divider which is original to the house:
The preserved kitchen is just phenomenal.
All original appliances!
Gotta love those huge glass walls that blur the boundary between indoors and out:
I’m not sure if the wallpaper in the bedroom (below) is original, but it certainly does have a 1960’s-1970’s vibe to it….
The bathrooms pop with bold color and vintage fixtures…
Blessed be the owners who had the foresight to keep the original sinks, cabinets, and formica countertops.
This retro-fab home has plenty of built-ins and eye-catching color combinations.
The backyard gets some good western sun and has the Palm Springs mid-century feel about it – even though the house is located in the seaside community of Marina del Rey.
