MCM 911 - Cliff May Rancho Needs Major Reno

3068 Kallin Avenue, Long Beach 90808
This 1955 Cliff May-designed 4 bedroom / 4 bath Mid-Century Modern Rancho is in some serious MCM 911 condition!  Anyone looking for a renovation project should be interested in this courtyard-style home located in the 800 acre El Dorado Park located in Long Beach.   3068 Kallin Avenue, Long Beach 90808 has got great bones and waiting for someone's love.  Redfin shows it is currently listed for $489,000.  Listing courtesy of William Smith.
Located within the Rancho Estates tract, you will find the property to be quiet and serene.  With over 1,270sf* of interior space, plus a converted two-car garage to allow for an additional 500sf*, provides plenty of room in this open floor plan.  The interior lot is allowed to be fenced-in entirely due to the specific zoning code for this particular neighborhood.  You can maximize your living space by creating outdoor gardens throughout the 5,300sf parcel.
The tract itself is a quiet area as it is bordered on two sides by the 800 acre El Dorado Park, which limits traffic through the neighborhood and provides a throw-back in time when kids can play in the neighborhood streets without the worry of heavy traffic through the community.  Having the Park close by allows on to take advantage of Southern California nature providing a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city life.  This neighborhood is bordered by the San Gabriel River bike path.  Anyone who knows, knows you can ride from your Rancho to Seal Beach using the bike path. 
You can visit the Cliff May Home Registry to find a list of homes designed by the architect providing you with and interactive Map and the ability to add your own Cliff May designed home to the registry. The home is in poor condition and agents are asked to accompany all showings through the listing agent.  Buyer to investigate all findings.  Short Sale alert.  Depending on the offer, this listing (MLS#P786128SC) may move out of a Standard-type sale and go into a Short Sale transaction with only one lender involved.

If you are interested in seeing this listing and would like to schedule a showing, feel free to give me a call, 213-305-8537 or contact me through modernhomeslosangeles.

In the meantime, have a modern day!
