NEW PHOTOS AND VIDEO!! Rarer-than-rare in North County and Old Carlsbad! Atrium-centered, mid-century modern home on a quiet cul-de-sac close to the beach, vibrant Carlsbad Village, and water sport central Agua Hedionda Lagoon! Tastefully updated and kept mostly original by its current 20-year designer residents, this single level, 3BD, 2BA home has everything for the discerning buyer. Enter the private courtyard past the Stan Bitters ceramic screen and through the bronze-clad sunburst double doors to your own Shangri-La! Assessor listed at 1686 sq. ft., the actual living area is substantially more factoring in the 270 sq. ft. central atrium that is usable nearly year-round and the 110 sq. ft. sunroom/office with custom, built-in cabinetry. Fully drought resistant landscaped with mature succulent and tropical gardens front, interior, and rear, escape from the daily grind and hustle and bustle in this inward-looking thoughtfully designed home. Original features include wall-hung toilets, a massive walk-in shower in the remodeled primary bathroom, and a sunken tub in the rear bathroom enclosed by glass and whatever garden you choose to enjoy there. Upgrades include a new roof (5 years) and solid oak flooring (2 years) in the living areas. 180 degree ocean views possible with an imagined second story bedroom suite over the garage and roof deck. If you have been looking for that unique MCM property near the beach in Coastal San Diego County, your search is over with this unique once in a generation offering.
