This 1957 house on the market in Los Angeles has been renovated so thoroughly it now resembles a midcentury-themed boutique hotel—albeit a rather stylish boutique hotel. The drastically updated six-bedroom home, purchased in 2009 for $1.715M and now on the market for $3.995M, has a loft-like living room, glass walls on two stories, and more tongue-and-groove ceiling decking than a sauna complex. Despite the monumental upgrades, much of the historic layout remains, with the ground floor essentially one big open-plan space, and the interplay between indoor and outdoor areas just as cohesive as one might expect from a midcentury house in L.A.
In addition to the stone pool terrace with views of the Pacific, there's a built-in bar, a garden, a combination office/"meditation zone," and all the modern kitchen elements that midcentury purists hate, like imported Italian tile floors, granite counter tops, and loads of appliances that date from after 1957.
