Cliff May is the father of the California Ranch-style house which combined the western ranch house and the Hispanic hacienda styles with elements of modernism back in 1932. The month that  sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows were on the market he incorporated these innovative building materials  into his homes. May’s work incorporated environmental design before it was recognized as such says Dan Gregory, aurhor of Cliff May and the Modern Ranch House. Many of his trademark design elements can be found in 11038 Snow White.

With floor to ceiling windows and atrium doors that flow to the outside courtyards this mid-century modern home truly connects to its environment and invites you to commune with nature.  The spacious entry- way with its tile floors is both a gallery and a dividing place for the two large great rooms that flow effortlessly into one another.  The master suite is spacious and split from the other bedrooms and has a large walk-in closet, sitting area and a remodeled bath.

The kitchen and great room form the heart and soul of the home with its vaulted and beamed ceilings.  The kitchen has been renovated with stainless Jenn Air appliances, gas cook tops and clear maple custom cabinets.  The east wing of the home has three bedrooms each with vaulted ceilings and transom windows.  The original bathroom fixtures have been carefully restored in the two west bathrooms.

The yard is very spacious and has numerous small and large courtyards including a large fenced in area on the east side of the home.   Priced at $574,900.
