Sometimes we worry that SoCal will start running low on its stock of trapped-in-amber mid-century houses, but then another one pops up on the MLS and we're distracted by a fabulous staircase, like the one in this 1964 specimen. This is the house's first time on the market since it was built and it appears to have been very well kept up. It comes with nearly an acre, deeded beach rights, and "so much amazing potential." Ruh-roh, we don't like the sound of that. Asking price is $2.95 million.
