Riviera Midcentury With Quirky Interiors

In lieu of an open-house roundup—which haven’t started up again yet—here are some noteworthy properties that have just come on the market.

Down a long driveway, 1191 Las Alturas Road ($5.995 million) is a neat 1965 two-bedroom house with excellent ocean views and a two-bedroom guest house. If you look past the decor—mind the alligator—there doesn’t seem to be a ton of work required, notwithstanding the kitchen and the very red powder room. Note: Even the putting green has great views.


Way up above Cielito, 1301 W. Mountain Drive ($4.995 million) is a 10-acre property with a 2016 house that mixes contemporary architecture and global decorative touches, including many Moroccan doors. Love the original adobe guesthouse; less sure about the naiads tinkling on the fountain.


The motor court at 1188 E. Mountain Drive ($13.995 million) is as big as it looks, with room for 35 vehicles, and the neoclassical house is more than 6,900 square feet—but with only three bedrooms. There are views for days, and the property is priced as if you wouldn’t feel the need to change a thing.


My husband and I rented 722 Via Mañana ($5.25 million) a few years ago, through Paradise Retreats (they were great, by the way). The house was in terrific shape and private, and we loved the covered patio—something more properties should consider—and the sumptuous master suite. The closet reliably dazzled visitors.


I don’t imagine anyone is dying to live on State Street, but 2328 State Street ($1.475M), a 1928 cottage between Junipero and Pueblo, is pretty darn cute—with an even cuter artist’s studio out back.
