A Contemporary Beach Retreat on California's Central Coast Asks $2.3M

Designed by architect James H. Maul in 1971 for his own family, this oceanside residence in Morro Bay is on the market for the first time.

The quintessentially Californian home is only steps from the beaches of Morro Bay on the Central Coast. With its wooden construction, soaring interiors, and floor-t0-ceiling windows, the home is at once airy, comforting, and connected to the outdoors.

The living room features ample glazing and an exposed beam ceiling. 

The 2,400-square-foot residence, which boasts four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, features groovy, '70s details such as a sunken great room, cork and wood paneling, exposed ceiling beams, and built-in furniture. Floor-to-ceiling wraparound windows allow stunning views of the coastline to fill almost every room. A cozy conversation pit set around a pebble-floored, hearth-and-steel fireplace makes a great feature for those who love to entertain.
