Adding a dash of cool ranch dressing to the market in Long Beach is this three-bedroom midcentury modern by the influential and prolific Cliff May.
Located near El Dorado Park in Rancho Estates, the tract of 700 residences May designed for developer Ross Cortese, the house was built in 1954, but has been extensively updated.
Along with quintessential California modern features such as vaulted, beamed ceilings, walls of glass, clerestory windows, and an open plan, the 1,383-square-foot home has been souped up with quartz countertops, white concrete floors, terrazzo tile, custom cabinetry, and designer light fixtures. Per the listing, it’s also got new copper plumbing, an updated electrical panel, and a new security system.
Exterior features include a guava tree-shaded patio and barbecue area, a pink pool and spa, and a “multipurpose studio,” converted from the property’s two-car garage.
3065 Stevely Avenue is listed with Nate Cole of Coldwell Banker at an asking price of $998,000. Open houses are scheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
