Designed by prolific modernist builder Cliff May, this terrific midcentury ranch home is now seeking its first owner since 1954, when the house was constructed.

The three-bedroom residence is located in the Rancho Estates neighborhood of Long Beach, where May and partner Chris Choate designed around 700 tract homes in the early 1950s.

As the listing notes, the 1,639-square-foot home is one of the bigger models constructed in the neighborhood, and it includes a wide open living and dining area, roomy bedrooms, and two bathrooms.

Many of the home’s original features have been left intact, and it includes vaulted and beamed ceilings, built-in wooden shelves, walls of glass, clerestory windows, and a brick living room fireplace. The bathrooms have some nice wood paneling, as well as some retro seafoam green shower tile.

The house sits on a 5,801-square-foot lot with a lush backyard and a brick patio space accessed from multiple rooms of the home. There’s also a separate side patio with a pergola and a two-car garage.

Asking price is $799,000, though the listing does indicate that the house is in need of a bit of repair, so keep that in mind if you’re thinking of making an offer.
