Why we have a crush on this property

What’s white, blue, and breezy all over? This A-frame for sale in coastal California.

Built in 1966 by Miller & Crowell Architects, the three-bedroom home is a five-minute walk from the beach. It’s been extensively renovated and updated, and now offers a sparkling new kitchen (with a blue marbled backsplash, sleek white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances), plus new bathrooms.

The home’s airy double-height living room steals the show. Painted white and brightened by huge windows, soaring ceilings, and stylish globe lamps, the room is a stunning lesson in the art of neutrals. It’s also warmed by a fireplace and boasts a set of glass doors that open to a patio.

A spiral staircase leads to the lofted second floor, where there’s another living space and three spacious bedrooms. One bedroom opens to a top-floor deck, where there’s a gas fire pit, a shaded area, and plenty of room for a dining set and lounge chairs. The patio below offers enough space for a hot tub and another fire pit, to boot.

Other perks include a three-car garage and two parking spaces. This very ‘60s property is listed by Adam Janeiro with City Living Realty for $933,500.
