This idyllic Californian abode is both a home and a time capsule.

Built in textbook midcentury modern style in 1971 by famed Big Sur architect James Maul, both the exterior and interior have been perfectly preserved in their original state.

On the market for the first time with Tartaglia Realty, with an asking price of $2.85m, the house is a treasure trove of classic details. Wood dominates on the walls, floors and furnishings, while windows stretch from floor to ceiling, keeping the house doused in California sunlight and providing a beach view at every turn.

Wood-burning stoves, a sunken conversation pit, a pool table and a rustic log lined veranda add to the cosy vibe. The bathrooms are particularly charming – their utilitarian design enlivened by pastel shades.
