Updating a classic midcentury home
A hillside midcentury modern house gets renovated for today with earth-friendly ideas that improve (discreetly) on the past
Before: Midcentury living roomFeatured in Sunset's May 1966 issue, this award-winning La Mesa hillside home near San Diego was considered a model of indoor-outdoor living.
From the downstairs office and family room, glass doors led to an outdoor patio and beautiful gardens.
A photo taken soon after the house was built shows the living room’s double-sided fireplace.
