I think at some point you have to ask the question, is it still a Cliff May home? I’ll save you the trouble, in this case I think it is. And I’m going to tell you why. People do all kinds of renovations / modification / reimagining in the Ranchos. Some of it wonderful. Some of it okay. And some it just plain awful. I don’t judge a home like this based on whether or not it is original (okay, maybe I do a little bit). I don’t even judge it based on whether I think, if alive today, would Cliff May have done something similar. Rather, I look at whether the modifications make the house work better as a house (something Cliff May was VERY interested in, btw) AND wonder whether this furthers the idea that the Cliff May homes were meant to represent. These homes were about indoor-outdoor living and clean, modern style where everything has a purpose. The windows aren’t original, and neither is the stucco exterior. But I this home is also easier to maintain and has been expanded for modern convenience.

An excellent and beautifully executed remodel of this Cliff May pool home has added to the charm and space while staying true to the original design. This lovely, sunny Rancho home is the definition of inside/outside living. From the soft cream walls, open beams and vaulted ceilings to the delightful celestial windows and multiple french doors this home is enchanting and feels like a 5 star resort. The Master en-suite has two sets of French doors opening to the backyard on one side and the pool and patio on the other side. The rooms open up to the large patio area and big pool, allowing the breezes to flow through and the sunshine to pour in. The bedrooms are generous and the baths have been updated. The open floor plan characteristic of these homes has an all new kitchen, a large island, dining area and living room looking out at the pool beyond. Privacy, a Cliff May design focus, lends to the experience of this home with multiple outside gathering spots. A wonderful mid-century home where you'll enjoy entertaining family and friends. In a great neighborhood near El Dorado Park this is a wonderful place to come home to...
