Fullerton Mid-Century Modern Estate(ish)

Homes like these really check all of the right boxes: large “throwback” style estate lots. Great schools. Privacy. Sprawling one-story designs. And lots of cool mid-century modern elements.

In this home, we’re particularly impressed by the walls of glass in the main living area as well as the cantilevered hearth fireplace. Cool stuff. In the bathrooms you’ll find the original floating vanities (don’t replace them!) and tile. But these are just finishes. Something I’m absolutely loving in this particular house is the entryway landscaping. The front door is well-recessed and there is a beautiful staggered concrete path and modern pergola / breezeway.

But yet, and this is just being honest, the house falls a little flat. Why? As homebuyers, (and really, as humans) I think we try to compartmentalize our thoughts and our purchase. But a home isn’t just the house. It’s the people. It’s the activities. It’s the furnishings. It’s the way it “feels.” This house looks “nice” — but it has the heart of a stunner. It’s just not dressed for success. But that’s where you come in. This one needs the right owner. With over 20,000 square feet of land, there’s no shortage of room to spread out. It’s got the right ingredients, just needs the finishing touches.
