A midcentury modern gem is on the market in Long Beach’s La Marina Estates neighborhood for $939,000, according to Curbed Los Angeles. Custom built in 1956, the home sits on a 9,888-square-foot lot on a quiet, tree-lined street.

The home’s only owner has maintained the three-bedroom property, which is on the market for the first time since it was built.

The single-story ranch-style structure has a sunken living room, which shares a see-thru fireplace with a family room. Both the family and living rooms look out onto a large, covered patio, while the kitchen features custom oak cabinetry as well as a built-in dining nook.

The home also has a two-car garage, a hot tub and brick planters throughout the yard. According to Compass, there’s opportunity to expand the home and/or add a swimming pool.

The home is located at 6495 East El Jardin Street.
