'Modern Tropical' Mid-Century Ranch (Cliff May)

Built in 1953, our home is a classic Cliff May Post and Beam in one of the most highly sought after historic neighborhoods in Los Angeles County. Located in the Rancho Estates, our one story home offers tons of natural light coming in from entire walls of windows and high ceilings. The kitchen has a large white waterfall island and offers ample space for prep and product. There are numerous mature plants throughout the home that offer a subtle tropical atmosphere including a 10 foot fiddle leaf fig tree in the kitchen. Plants are changed out often to ensure they look healthy and vibrant. The home is decorated with custom high end mid century modern furniture coupled with eclectic furnishing, art, decorations and large persian rugs that provide options for different backdrops. In 2018 the entire house was renovated with modern touches that were respectful to the architecture of the home. The backyard has a custom mural replicating Hokusai's Great Wave that can be seen from large windows from the living room.
