Amazing midcentury beach house

It was love at first sight when I spotted this San Francisco beach house from 1949 by architect Ernest Born in The NY Times. The current owner has built an addition as a separate house, connected to the original via a glass tunnel, but other than that, everything is left unchanged. Decorated with both vintage and reproduction midcentury items that truly fits the spirit of the house, the atmosphere is relaxed and cozy but still airy, and with the addition of modern and personal things like a built-in surfboard rack and flat-screen tv's, the feel is not at all like a museum or period show home.

    Åh vad glad jag blir av att se att du är igång och bloggar igen! :) Imponeras av din förmåga till nya fynd. Själv är jag också igång igen, även om jag har dragit ner ambitionsnivån lite. Ha en fortsatt skön sommar!

    The glass tunnel look absolutely stunning from the outside, how I would love to visit this place in person. The high ceiling and huge windows are the favourite features, love it!

    I want this house! With the grand piano and surfboards even though I can't use either.
