441 Swarthmore Lane, Costa Mesa, CA

$849,000 - 6 Beds - 3 Baths - 2,261 Sqft - .17 Acres

6 bedroom mid-century rare Balboa model in College Park! Originally a 3 bedroom, the current owners added the second story in 1968, while keeping with the original design including vaulted ceilings in every bedroom. Lots of original Japanese Ash used on wall panels and cabinetry including the desk in family room and butcher block roll-out in kitchen. Builders Murray and Sanders economic design allowed them to include many features usually only found in custom homes of the mid-50s. One of those features was the built-in GE washer/dryer combo machine in the kitchen, another is the beautiful copper anodized hood range vent. A standard washing machine now sits in this kitchen but we have a bid to put a combo machine back and new counters if someone wants to keep the beautiful original Ash cabinet layout. Otherwise, it would be very simple to install a washer hookup in the addition, next to the dryer in the room behind the kitchen as there is a bathroom directly upstairs to access plumbing. This home appears to have copper re-pipe throughout and many vinyl window replacements that fit well with the original style. The main living areas are vaulted with 3/4 walls separating the living/dining rooms from the kitchen/family rooms in one very large space. Nice cul-d-sac location with avocado, orange, pluot and lime trees, many cool hang out spaces, good storage space and located about 4 miles from the shores of Newport Beach!
