876 Center Street, El Segundo — Amazing Adobe
Beds: 3 | Baths: 2 | Sq. Ft.: 2,050 | 8,000+ Sq. Ft. Lot | Year Built: 1954 | Listed For: $1,450,000
This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of southern California history! The adobe bricks that make up the structure of this home were set by hand from the hardened earth of the very lot on which the home is built. It took the original owner six years to build this home for his family in the late 1950s. Stunningly unique features throughout, this horseshoe-shaped floorplan will have you intrigued from the moment you walk through the custom front door and into the bright living room complete with solid wood exposed beams and a picture window that perfectly frames the front yard view. Both the front and back yards of this 8,000+ sq.-ft. lot were designed for the southern California climate. The native, drought-tolerant plant choices are simply the beginning of this home’s integration into a sustainable lifestyle. Classic and modern practices combine as the thermal properties of the adobe exterior walls insulate the interior and the addition of solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall allows you to soak up the sun’s energy and store it for your future use as you track the output from your smartphone. Just a few blocks to downtown El Segundo, with notes of mid-century design, this masterpiece is awaiting its next owner—a steward of historical building practices and sustainable living.
