It’s great to come across a property that has a lot of really good things going for it (great “bones”, as they say) and yet could use a little updating, allowing a new owner to turn it into a gem with their own thumbprint on the work. This 3 BR / 2 BA mid-century designed in 1950 by AIA architect Cornelius Deasy as a Neutra study and used as his own family residence is a fine example of such a property. In fact, I would call it a diamond in the rough.

 his back yard view of the house captures the essence of a quintessential 1950’s California home, with one entire side opening up to a patio and pool in the backyard.

 The home features an open floor plan with classic post and beam ceiling and floor to ceiling windows. And a special treat is the not-so-common heated slate floors.

 The kitchen is a room that could benefit from a facelift. But even still, it’s hard to not appreciate its period authenticity. I particularly dig the glass faces to the cabinet doors.

 The den and third bedroom, which also works well as an office, both enjoy access to the backyard patio and pool.

 The bedrooms are not overly large, but there is a quality to them that recalls an artist's retreat. Maybe it's the quality of the light that streams in through the room's transom windows.
