Location: Los Angeles, California
Over in Los Angeles’ Eagle Rock neighborhood, across the street from Occidental College, an adorable Spanish-style house has come on the market for $769,000. The 1,200-square-foot abode, originally built in 1929, was dim and dated when designer Julia Chasman scooped it up last fall and began giving it a charming makeover.
First, there is the drastic exterior revamp (you can see a "before" shot in this December 2015 Google Street View capture), which includes stone paths and a fountain in the front courtyard and a new deck and garage/studio in the backyard. And then there’s the interior. Chasman sought to restore original features where possible, including the Batchelder tile fireplace, plus some windows, doors, and wood floors. Modern updates can be found in the new kitchen with KitchenAid appliances, subway tiles (duh), and marble counters. There’s also a few new custom additions, including the window bench in the dining room and a stained glass skylight in the hall bath.
