Location: Marysville, California
This midcentury modern home in Marysville, near Sacramento, California, appears to be largely untouched since it was first built in 1950, with a few sensitive updates that keep it fresh.
Designed by Michael A. Goodman, the rambling ranch style residence offers over 6,000 square feet of living space, encompassing five spacious bedrooms, five baths, and a number of generously proportioned living spaces.
Handsome period details also abound, like a stately stone construction, paneled walls and ceilings, plenty of built-in storage, and windows all around. Entering the home, one is greeted by a large foyer, with a formal dining room with pocket doors to the left, and a great room to the right.
Here, a large stone fireplace creates a cozy lounge area with curved paneled walls and slate floors that transitions into a larger living area with wood flooring, gently sloping paneled ceilings, and glass walls on either side that open up the space to the 2.65-acre site.
There’s also a huge period kitchen with wooden cabinetry and a further utility room with mint-green metal cabinetry. The tiled bathrooms (a couple of which are ensuite) are a ’50s-era delight, with schemes of pink-and-white, blue-and-white, yellow-and-green, and pink-and-violet. Other amenities include a study, recreation room with wet bar, swimming pool, pool house, tennis courts, and large lawns.
Located at 209 E. 25th Street, it’s offered at $1.25 million.
