I HAVE A VERY SOFT SPOT FOR THIS HOME. I bought my first home, a Cliff May in Tustin, for $575,000 in 2005. It was in very similar condition — good bones but it needed some aesthetic help. But the great things about these homes is that they clean-up well. Some paint, unified flooring, and a few good garage sale / antique store / Ikea runs and you’ve got yourself a stylish home at the very affordable end of the spectrum in Orange County. If you can afford a $500k condo, you can probably qualify for this house. There are some bigger changes down the line you’ll want to make — that front wall needs to come forward to better frame the courtyard. But this is the perfect home for someone who is high on design aspirations and style, but not so much on downpayment. This home is available for 5% down or maybe even less.
