One of Dwell's go-to bloggers, Diana Moss, stumbled upon these great old photographs in the LIFE magazine archive. They depict a house in La Jolla, California, designed by architect William Kesling in 1946-47. The house was built for "retired bachelor Walton MacConnell," who, LIFE wrote, "settled down in the elegant, sunny little town… As a setting for this life he has built himself a dramatic, glossy, $40,000 home which hugs the edge of a 50-foot seaside cliff." It's very mod, and accented by more than one bathing beauties.
