This charming 1930s Spanish Architecture home was completed in two phases. PHASE ONE included opening the kitchen to the dining room, reducing the size of interior hallways to add a master bath, a master closet and a guest bath. PHASE TWO changed an existing bedroom to a den which opens to both the kitchen and the rear yard. On the second floor, 1,450 sq. ft was added to accommodate the needs of a larger family.
The home features 5 bedrooms and 5 baths. The existing step down living room and dining room were maintained. These traditional spaces, along with an outside water feature, were artfully remodeled to showcase their historic beauty. To bring in the open plan concept, a new great room was created by opening the kitchen to the redesigned backyard that includes a trellised dining patio with views of the lawn areas. The upstairs has a central hallway which opens to a children’s library & playroom. Connecting these central spaces is an exposed wood beam design on the ceiling above. The light filled central hall is the most dynamic space in the house and opens on one end to the playroom, and towards the rear yard, a sitting area with views of the Santa Monica mountains.
