About 1959 Orange Avenue

Situated on the East side of Costa Mesa this artist retreat is one of the very few original Cliff May homes built in the area. For anyone who likes modernist design and has been dreaming of owning a mid-century home this is your chance. The floorplan is open and bright, perfectly designed for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The original footprint of the home is intact with open beam ceilings, polished concrete floors, wood burning fireplace with a natural-edged beam mantel, high-end contemporary fixtures, Wolf gas stove and custom windows that bring natural light into every room. The sellers added an expansive addition to the back of the home, sympathetic to the Cliff May original. The addition has soaring ceilings with remote controlled skylights that open to invite the cool ocean breeze. 1959 Orange Avenue is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with separate laundry room, the lot is over 7200 sq feet and sports a FOUR CAR GARAGE you enter from the alley. Two of the garages are currently used as a wood shop, it could easily be converted to an ADU, a workout room or a home office. The wrap around patio is vibrant with color year-round, the perfect place for entertaining, relaxing, growing vegetables and reaping the rewards from the numerous fruit trees. Situated on the East Side of Costa Mesa you are near restaurants, shopping, parks, schools and all the local attractions. A short bike ride to Balboa Fun Zone, the beach, and piers. This home is truly one of a kind, don’t miss out!
