Beautiful custom built mid century modern ranch, designed by Alfred Wilkes circa 1951 in the VERY COOL San Rafael hills. This delightful home has had 2 owners since new and is uniquely sited on its terraced lot, taking advantage of serene views from 3 sides of floor to ceiling glass. Truly the ideal floorplan for modern S Cal living with patios on both sides of the living room. Handsome original architectural details abound, combined with thoughtful updates to the kitchen and master bath. The graceful floorplan offers a separate master suite at one end of the house and 3 large bedrooms in a separate wing, each with peaceful views of treetops and the hills beyond. The sunny kitchen features new SS appliances, quartz counters and a lrg upholstered banquette that acts as the central hangout of this dazzling 50s gem. Outdoors are 3 large patios for entertaining as well as a large grassy area. This home offers a rare combination of integrity and optimism not often found in the market today.
