      I believe that this picture is not in Garden Grove as stated, but in Rossmoor (Los Alamitos, CA) instead. Check Google Maps street view of 12551 Foster Rd., 90720 and see for yourself. The current house has been remodeled, but the house in the '1960' picture is definitely one of the traditional Rossmoor models. Compare between the 1960 photo and the modern Google image the windows of the adjacent houses, the position of the chimney in the subject house and the configuration of the utility poles behind the house. Partly because Rossmoor is within the desirable Los Alamitos Unified School district among other locational reasons, the house is probably valued at perhaps closer to $700k, perhaps more.

      I lived on Tigertail Rd., just around the corner until I was 8 years old. That's definitely a Rossmoor home--ours was a flopped version of this model. Beautiful place then, beautiful now.
