Pure Cliff May. No term could better describe this exquisite residence in the Rancho Estates, which was designed by renowned architect Cliff May and built by Ross Cortese in 1954. This property had one original owner until earlier this year, and in keeping with the loving care with which the home was maintained, the current owners have made great effort to preserve the character, spirit and architectural details. Key features of the residence have been updated and include an island kitchen with custom birch cabinets to match original birch paneling, updated bathrooms with designer tile, cork flooring throughout, an expanded master closet, and interior lighting. Functional upgrades include a new rock roof (consistent with the original design), laundry hookups in the garage, a 4” sewer cleanout and an automatic sprinkler system (front and back). This is the rare and much sought-after Lanai Model, featuring a charming covered patio entry that embodies the iconic Western ranch style for which Cliff May is so widely celebrated. And if great design and style were not enough, this property is also situated in a quiet interior location on one of the most desirable streets in the Rancho Estates. If you desire classic midcentury modern architecture in a safe and close-knit community, bordered by 800 acres of park with bike path to the beach, then you must experience this special property.
