It’s still got some midcentury flair

Built in 1955, this lovely ranch-style house in Santa Monica is on the market for the first time ever. “Lovingly maintained,” as the listing notes, the three-bedroom home features redwood siding and a charming, rustic exterior.

On the inside, it’s got a few details that nod to its midcentury origins, including modular wood shelves in the living room (not original), a stone-clad dual-sided fireplace, and exposed beams that line the ceilings of the communal rooms.

Outside the main three-bedroom house, there’s an outdoor rock fireplace underneath a breezeway that connects to the garage. The 600-square-foot garage has been converted into a studio with a full bathroom and a laundry room.

The 8,000-square-foot lot also has room for a pool, “depending on the size,” notes the listing.

The asking price is $2.65 million.
