Here's a last-minute Christmas present for the mid-century modern fan on your list who appreciates a little challenge. Located in the Corbin Palms housing tract, this post and beam was built in 1955 by the celebrated modernist architecture firm of Palmer & Krisel, with landscaping by Garrett Eckbo. Per its listing, the 1,926-square-foot residence features "open-beam ceilings, wide expanses of glass, clerestory windows, along with an expanded floor plan that includes 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living/dining room, family room, and bonus room." However, the copy goes on to note, "significant deferred maintenance will necessitate a thorough restoration," which would explain the lack of interior photos, as well as the low, low asking price of $395,000.
