With four outdoor living spaces, this prefab Cliff May abode is perfect for large-scale entertaining.

Set on 7,875-square-foot lot, this Cliff May-designed Tustin home comes with a detached garage with two covered parking spaces.

Marked by timeless charm and simplicity, this California ranch house, designed by the prolific midcentury architect Cliff May, has hit the market in Tustin and comes with its original structure largely intact.

Built in 1954, this stylish three-bedroom, two-bath home boasts all the hallmarks of indoor-outdoor living with walls of glass, an open floor plan, and an abundance of space for entertaining.


Designed by the “Father of the California Ranch Home,” Cliff May prefab homes, like this 1950s dwelling here, were completed in just a few days after the concrete slabs were poured.

As with all of Cliff May’s prefab homes, this constant connection with the outdoors gives the L-shaped house a surprisingly spacious feel that belies its 1,235-square-foot size. Moreover, its four usable outdoor spaces—including a lagoon-style pool area—offer ample space for entertaining.

Walls of glass to the left of the entrance open up to an outdoor dining area. Hardwood floors are used throughout the open-plan great room.
