Los Angeles

This home has been transformed into a masterpiece of design inside while seamlessly blending with the iconic homes for which South Carthay Historic Preservation Zone is known. The whole-home renovation and expansion is picture-perfect – from the newly designed open concept layout and classic elegant finishes, to the gleaming white oak floors inside that unify every room.

A formal living room with high ceilings and multiple windows, gives way to a tremendous open concept design with a dining area, masterfully designed top of the line kitchen, breakfast area, and family room with eight foot custom french doors opening to a large patio with traditional saltillo tile and barbeque. This is indoor/outdoor living as it should be! Adding to it all are exquisite soapstone countertops, fully custom cabinetry, and a wood burning fireplace that enhances the ambiance along with perfectly selected lighting. Off the living area is a guest powder room that boasts charm and style with its gold Rohl fixture.

The main home comprises 3 bedrooms beginning with the luxurious owner’s suite with custom built-in his/her dressers, stunning bath finished in white marble and walls of handmade moroccan tile with contemporary geometric style. Floor-to-ceiling frameless glass and a translucent window maintain the sense of light that permeates the entire home. A walk-in closet with exceptional customization is ready for a wardrobe of significance. Down its own wing, and just right for family and flexibility, are two additional bedrooms plus a beautifully appointed bathroom with shower finished with Calacatta marble countertops and tub surround with hand glazed tiles.

The permitted guest cottage sits on the back of the property. This one bedroom, one bathroom cottage boasts an elegant fully equipped kitchen, vaulted ceiling in the living area, and bedroom with a skylight and air conditioning. Perfect for at home office, in-law unit or guests.
