Per the Listing: "Stylish Mid-Century home with well-articulated architectural elements creating strong visual interest. Extensively remodeled with surfaces and materials that honor the integrity of the period yet facilitate the demands of contemporary living. Open and balanced floor plan, inside/outside living, abundant sunlight and ocean breezes. A true 4 bedroom, graciously proportioned den/playroom/multi-purpose/formal living room. Inspiring classic California garden entry. Wide and deep backyard with full-sized salt water + solar heated swimming pool. Modest ocean views."
It's a very, very handsome property. Too bad about those "modest" ocean views, though. Per the LA Times archives, the home was advertised as one of those state-of-the-art Medallion Homes built during the '50s and '60s, boasting all electrical appliances and hookups. The homes came with a little circular gold plaque emblazoned with the outline of a family and the motto "Live Better Electrically." Apartment Therapy did a nice write up on the homes several years ago, and there's also a YouTube video of one of the original Medallion Home commercials.
