Peek Inside This Well-Preserved Stunner Near the California Coast

Mid-century modern homes are famous for their large windows and open, airy floor plans. But this specimen in Eureka, Calif., takes those hallmarks to new heights with a whopping 3,367 square feet of living space.

The home is, in a word, huge. It’s also spread across one level, making it feel cavernous in the best kind of way. Take a step back in time through an orange front door to be met with exposed beams and bricks. Inside, a fireplaced living room with soaring ceilings serves as the perfect setting for a sleek sofa and a retro starburst clock. Floor-to-ceiling windows, plus a few skylights, let in light from all angles.

Beyond the main living room is a sparkling solarium, adding to the airy quality of home. (Plant lovers, take note.) Down the hall, a spacious den or home office offers built-in bookshelves and cabinets.

The kitchen, meanwhile, overlooks a spacious dining area that should only be furnished with Danish teak pieces, if you ask us. Aside from a center island with a hood, the kitchen also comes with a wood-fire oven and all the counter space you could ever dream of.

Open a dutch door off the laundry room—also painted orange—to reach the wooded yard. There, a detached shed could serve as a workshop or studio. To top it all off, the place is only a short 7-minute drive to the sandy shores of the Pacific Ocean.

According to that retro starburst clock on the wall, it’s time to put in an offer. This home is listed for $850,000 by Michelle Voyles at Azalea Realty.
